Delicious Grass Finished Beef
The Upper Ranch continues as a working ranch with our cow/calf pairs grazing both the abundant home pastures and our Crown Range Tenure located to the north and east of the Spillimacheen River.
We have an Environmental Farm Plan in place and implement “Best Management Practices” identified under the farm plan. We believe environmentally sustainable practices will continue to improve this ranch business, lands, and local ecology.
We at the Upper Ranch take great pride in our animals, our operations, the environment and the product we raise. We are Verified Beef Production Plus certified. The Verified Beef Production Plus (VBP+) program enables our beef cattle operation to prove to consumers and retailers that our operation adheres to the highest standards for food safety, animal care and environmental stewardship.
Beef from our herd of Shorthorn cattle embodies superior taste and quality as well the documented nutritional benefits of grass fed beef. Whether you choose a New York Strip from an eighteen month old heifer, burger or sausage from an older animal you will be delighted by the depth of flavour. Our beef contains only green grass, sparkling water and golden sunshine.
We finish a limited number of steers and heifers each year which are processed in a provincially inspected abattoir. From these we then market whole animals, sides and quarters.
