Double R Ranch’s Commitment to Sustainability
We know the Northwest is home to some of the best agriculture in the world and Double R Ranch beef from Agri Beef Co is no exception. Just over the Cascade Mountain range sits the 70,000-acre Double R Ranch in pristine northwest cattle country—this is where the spirit of Double R Ranch beef can be found. From the slopes of the Okanogan range to the valleys of Palmer Lake, cattle graze on one of the most sustainable ranches in the country. It’s a place where pride and passion for ranching run through generations.
At Double R Ranch, animal well-being, environmental stewardship and sustainability is a way of life. From locally sourced feed and grain to the Northwest’s extensive use of hydro-electric power, it all adds up to a carbon footprint 41% lower than mid-west ranches. Here are some of the ways the people of Double R Ranch beef are committed to sustainability:
- Their composting program allows them to produce sustainable, nutrient rich fertilizer for local farms.
- They practice a rotational grazing program which helps keep their mountain pastures thriving and their cattle happy.
- They source over 95% of their cattle feed from local farmers.
- 95% of the packing plant’s water is reclaimed through their water treatment program.
The result of these commitments is beef with unmatched flavor and tenderness. You can feel good knowing that the beef you buy is not only delicious, it’s produced by sound, sustainable practices that support local ranchers. Ever since we first opened our doors in Bellingham, we’ve made it our goal to partner with other like-minded local companies. That’s why we’re proud to be the exclusive retailer for Double R Ranch and bring you quality USDA Choice and Prime beef produced here in the Northwest.
