Comments: Here at Big Canyon Beef we provide USDA inspected, wholesome, delicious individual cuts of beef, such as rib steaks, T-bone steaks, Tomahawk steaks, hamburger, patties, and a few choice roasts. We also provide 1/4's, 1/2's, and whole beef for the customer who wants to buy in bulk. You can now order online and we will ship directly to your door or if you are local enough we have scheduled bi-monthly drop off points around our region. Our cattle are either fed hay or out on grass. When the cattle reach about 800 lbs we continue to keep them on pasture and supplement them with barley to get that great finished taste. Our cattle are bred to be more moderate in size so they can traverse steep, rugged country more efficiently. We have been also selecting bulls with great carcass merits to ensure our customers have tender, flavorful beef that will keep them coming back. Our cattle have been grading 95% choice and prime when we do take them to the packers.

We are a family ranch located in scenic north central Idaho on the breaks of the Clearwater River. We are deeply passionate about holistic grazing and leaving the grass and pastures healthier for generations to come. The last few years we have been concentrating on regenerative agriculture and using the cattle as a tool for soil health.
