We Are Non-GMO
As a 100% certified organic product, Eel River Organic Beef is Non-GMO and we embrace full GMO transparency. Organic standards prohibit the use of GMOs, and all of our ranchers have been certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).
Our Beef Is 100% Traceable
Because our cattle are carefully raised by independent ranchers, our beef is 100% traceable back to the ranch and the animal. CCOF’s strict standards require that all cattle remain and graze on certified pastures, and are not given any antibiotics, growth hormones, feed additives or animal by-products. We adhere to each and every guideline as set forth by CCOF and the USDA National Organic Programs.
Grass-Fed and Grass-Finished
Our cattle graze on approximately 50,000 acres in and around the beautiful Eel River Valley in Humboldt County of Northern California. Located in the remote North West corner of California, the Eel River Valley is surrounded by lush green sub-irrigated pastures and giant Redwood trees. Because of our mild climate with an average yearly temp of 54 degrees F and average rainfall of 38 inches per year, our grass-fed beef graze on green pastures year round.
Our cattle are always given plenty of open space, fresh air, and clean water. Unlike conventional cattle and even many organic cattle, our cattle remain on certified organic grassy pastures their entire life, never going to feedlots for finishing. We have found that by allowing the cattle plenty of room to roam, an abundance of fresh clover and rye grass to graze on, and by keeping stress to a minimum, our animals are naturally healthy.
By setting these high standards, we can ensure that our customers are receiving the highest quality, healthiest grass-fed, grass-finished product that is a pleasure to eat. Enjoy the rich, hearty flavor of our organic steaks, roasts, ribs and ground beef. Find a Store
Miles to Market Fresh
Our cattle are processed locally by Redwood Meat Company, a small family-owned and operated organic facility in our area. We work hard to get our products to you from grassland to market with minimal impact on the environment—with as few “miles to market” as possible. Our beef doesn’t come from the Midwest, Australia or South America. It is raised and finished right here on the West Coast,which means no long distance transport stress on the animals or unnecessary use of fuel.
Our beef is organic, delicious, naturally healthy and a product of the USA.
“To your health and to our environment!”—Clint Victorine
