"Our family-run farm has been providing quality meat to our community for 150 years."

All-Natural grass fed cattle free of additives, chemicals, antibiotics, and growth hormones.

Our Purpose

mother_calf100% Grass-fed Beef

  • Our beef have no hormones
  • No antibiotics
  • No feed additives
  • No assembly line
  • Most importantly, they are raised on a local family farm by experienced and knowledgeable cattlemen and women.

Our objective is to provide natural ranch raised beef, “the kind that our families have thrived on for 5 generations.” All of our cattle are born on the prairies of South Thurston County in the spring and range free on our acreage.

Our Practices


Healthy Pastures

We believe in being responsible stewards of the land and using sustainable, humane methods. Our sustainable methods include “rotational grazing” along the lush meadows of the Deschutes River, which not only allows us to maintain healthy pastures but also allows our cattle to graze on the most nutrient rich part of the grass

Farm Events

2024 Calf Tours at the Nelson Ranch

Please join us March 30th and/or April 13th


Bring your friends, family, and neighbors to see our newborn calves. We will drive you up close to the animals on the hay wagon so you can see all the baby calves. The calves are always very cute and there will be a lot of them so it is always a fun event.

Since it is Easter weekend, we will have an Easter Egg Hunt on March 30th at 11:00 for kids 9 and under. Our Easter Egg Hunt is different than most because the eggs are hidden in the woods. At the sound of the bell, kids will dash for candy and prizes hidden in the woods of our farm. Please bring your own basket or bag if your child wants to participate in the Easter Egg Hunt. 

Come for the Calf Tours, the Easter Egg Hunt, or both. All events are free but we would love to have you support our farm by buying beef from us the day of the event. It is also a great opportunity to place your orders for quarters and halves for the summer/fall of 2024.
