Welcome to the fork in the road.
When developing Aspen Ridge®, there were two routes we could take. We decided not to take the easiest, fastest or least expensive route. We decided to take the best because it’s the only way to produce premium beef with unprecedented flavor and consistency.
The Aspen Ridge brand originated by first examining the entire process of raising cattle. Then, we employed best practices at each step in order to produce the finest, most wholesome beef.
It all starts with genetics.
We take pride in the verified Angus genetics of Aspen Ridge Premium Beef. We have aligned with ranchers who follow our strict genetic, feeding and handling protocols. All Aspen Ridge cattle are source and age verified back to their birth ranch in Canada. When this breed is raised without the use of added hormones or antibiotics, fed properly and cared for humanely, the results are consistently astounding.
We rely on family-owned, Canadian ranches.
We appreciate the dedicated partnerships we’ve formed with family-owned ranches that provide an environment where cattle are pasture-raised, allowing them to mature naturally. Plus, all animal handling practices are third party validated, resulting in all Aspen Ridge products carrying the Certified Humane designation. It requires that all animals have ample space, access to food, water and shelter and are handled gently to minimize stress.
Single-sourced and controlled feedlot.
All Aspen Ridge cattle are fed exclusively at one feedlot. The cattle are fed a specially formulated, vegetarian based diet on site to ensure control and consistency. The staff uses humane handling practices to create a low stress environment. We enjoy an ideal climate with low humidity, which is optimal for feeding high quality cattle. Our unique approach, ideal geographic location and feeding regimen results in assured consistency that is difficult to replicate.
You’ll appreciate the path we chose.
We control the quality of our beef from the ranch on. We maintain an uncompromising commitment to food safety. We take innovative steps to be responsible stewards of the land. And most of all, we produce superior beef.
