At Coulee Creek Ranch, we are honored to provide delicious & nutritious food to our community. We partner with horses to do much of the work on the ranch, and practice holistic grazing for healthy grasslands, animals and people. We are a small family-owned and operated ranch in Lavina, Montana. We raise 100% grassfed beef, pastured pork, and Icelandic lamb.

Our land stewardship practices
The prairie ecosystem responds positively to grazing pressure by herbivores that fertilize and aerate the soil as they move across the landscape. We tap into these natural cycles by moving our herd across the landscape frequently. This creates the potential for healthy functioning grasslands that provide habitat for thousands of species of insects, birds, plants and fungi.
Healthy functioning soils are the foundation for this healthy habitat. Our grazing practices are designed to increase and maintain soil health by…
- boosting microbial activity
- encouraging root systems
- increasing water retention
- storing carbon
- promoting diverse communities of plants, fungi, and animals
Animals that graze on healthy grasslands with a diverse diet produce meat that is more nutritious (nutrient dense) and delicious. Holistic agriculture considers the big picture, and can create better health for the whole ecosystem, which translates to better animal health and better human health.
We are pleased to be certified through the National Audubon’s Conservation Ranching Initiative. Our cattle are grazed on Audubon Certified Bird-Friendly Land, which ensures that our management practices adhere to a set of four habitat, forage, animal welfare, and sustainability standards. Learn more on the Audubon Conservation Ranching webpage.
In recognition of our stewardship practices, we received a Sustainability Certification from the Western Sustainability Exchange. This certification ensures that we:
- Treat animals humanely
- Eliminate hormones and sub-therapeutic antibiotics
- Significantly reduce or eliminate chemicals used in production practices
- Protect open space, wildlife habitat, and water and soil quality
