Silvies Valley Ranch believes livestock ranching can be paired with abundant, healthy wildlife to set the standard for the nation in best ranching and environmental practices.
Three families with pioneer roots own and manage the farm. The ranch is over 130,000 acres of deeded and leased national forest and BLM lands in and surrounding Silvies Valley, nestled in the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. The size of the property allows for a minimum of 100 acres per head of cattle. Our ranch is Food Alliance certified.
Our line of heritage cattle is a mix of Red Angus and Hereford bred to go to market at a weight of less than 900 pounds. This yields tastier smaller cuts and is easier on the riparian meadows where they are bred and raised. We never use antibiotics or hormones and our cattle are 100% free from corn, grain and alfalfa. Our choice to take our cattle at the yearling age of 12-16 months produces smaller, tender cuts that distinguish our beef.
Their diet consists solely of native meadow and Silvies Valley hay. This includes 12 varieties of naturally irrigated grasses, seven species of clover and over 100 varieties of wild flowers. This produces tender lean meat with a higher proportion of good fats and proteins.
Our beef is solely processed and distributed by Nicky USA, Inc. in Portland, Oregon. April through December our beef is available fresh, the remainder of the year we provide frozen options. We offer all cuts vacuum packed or up to full quarters cut to your specifications. Our beef is available for pick up or direct shipping.
