SunFed Ranch Grass Fed Beef
Grass fed Angus Beef • 100% Grass Fed and Grass Finished • Sustainably and Humanely Raised with Care • No added hormones or antibiotics • Naturally lean and healthy
Founded by two ranching families with deep roots in the foothills of the Sacramento Valley and the rangeland of the Klamath Basin between Mt. Shasta and Crater Lake, SunFed offers exceptional, 100% grass fed beef for all your favorite recipes.
SunFed Ranch and its cattle are part of nature’s cycle—from the oak woodlands of the foothills and the coast, to lush mountain meadows and high desert. As environmental stewards, the ranchers are committed to caring for the open spaces, watersheds, native plants and wildlife—today and for future generations. For many years, SunFed Ranch families have been nourished by the sun, growing beef in balance with the land, the plants, and the wildlife that thrive on these grasslands.
The cattle are born and raised on pasture land, fed and finished on the high-quality grasses that grow there. SunFed ranchers hold themselves to the highest standards of excellence, and the quality is evident in every bite.
