Welcome to Thunderbasin Land & Livestock
Organic Beef Facts:
Thunderbasin Land & Livestock is a family-owned mountain ranch located on the high plains of Wyoming at an elevation of between 6,000 and 7,000 feet. We are certified organic.
The Thunderbasin Ranch is an environmentally sound, ecologically friendly ranch. We have a Holistic operation, thus, our range management philosophy is based on naturally healthy soil, clean water and diverse plant communities.
The naturally healthy and rich feed base provides the nutrition needed to promote healthy cattle, just as it does throughout nature.
The cattle are grazed such that they fertilize,
rototill and reseed the range, just as the herds of buffalo once did.
We offer only healthy, safe, and delicious lean beef that was raised using ecologically sustainable growing practices. At Thunderbasin Land & Livestock, our cattle are treated humanely and receive no antibiotics, hormones or pour-on insecticides. Much like the patterns of wildlife, our calves are born in the warmth of Spring and are not corralled or penned. They never see a feedlot and are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, providing you with all the health benefits documented from grass fed beef. Our holostic ranch management practices create healthy riparian zones, promote plant and animal diversity, and protect wildlife habitats, which results in an abundance of native plants and wildlife on the ranch.
Grassfed beef has about the same amount of fat as skinless chicken.
Grassfed beef is low in "bad" fat (saturated fat) but has two to six times more of a "good" fat called omega-3-fatty acids which reduce the risks for heart-attack and cancer.
