Armstrong-Zita Ranch is a family owned and operated farm south of Tumwater, WA. We offer lean and tender organic grass-fed beef each summer, taking orders in spring. We have a small herd (no more than a dozen) of Angus-Hereford cattle, born and bred here on our farm south of Tumwater, sustainably rotated on lush pasture. They are never fed hormones or antibiotics. Our cattle have a peaceful life. They all come to their names.
The beef is dry-aged for two weeks for extra tenderness, then professionally cut & wrapped to customers' orders. A quarter beef usually finishes at about 150 lbs of meat and fills about 4 square feet in the freezer. Some customers arrange to share a quarter with friends or family.
When the summer grass is still green and cattle are still on the gain, certified professionals do a quick, humane, kosher slaughter without pain or fear, here on the farm. Our cattle never experience the stress of a feedlot or transport to a slaughterhouse - they spend their whole lives in familiar pastures. This is part of our commitment to the best treatment of the cattle, and the best quality meat, minimizing stress hormones.
Hanging weight price is $4.00/lb per quarter, or $3.50/lb per half. Each quarter has equal shares from front and rear.
Visitors to the farm are welcome by appointment.
