Rio Culebra High Mountain Beef is owned by cattle producers located in the foothills of the beautiful Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range in Costilla County, Colorado, about 20 miles from the New Mexico state line. Our cattle are grass-fed, and exceed USDA Grass-Fed Standards.
Our producers do not administer antibiotics or growth hormones. Cattle receive no GMO feed, and are raised in a humane manner. They are pastured in the mountains and in the high mountain valley meadows, on alfalfa and native grasses. Our products are beyond organic, but are not certified organic.
Cattle are harvested between 600 to 900 pounds, then the carcass is dry-aged to enhance flavor and tenderness. The beef is extremely tender and delicious—as close to veal as you are going to get. Some comments from our customers include: “It is the best beef I have ever tasted!.” “It is so tender!” “You can even cut a round steak with a fork!”
Our products can be shipped anywhere in the United States and can be delivered within a 250-mile radius.
