A true culinary delight in every bite! When what you eat matters...
Located in the gorgeous Chewelah valley in the great Pacific Northwest, River’s Edge Ranch is your source for local, natural & ethically raised grass-fed and grass-finished Beef, Heritage Lamb & Goat. Our small multi-generational family run ranch, takes pride in the products we produce; all our meats are grown with the highest quality care, minerals, feeds & water to provide you with a memorable dining experience.
River’s Edge Ranch’s Lamb/Sheep, is unique in many ways, our sheep are comprised of “Primitive” sheep breeds, those breeds whom have remained unchanged for centuries. This does result in smaller animal size and meat cuts, but with outstanding flavor, a fine texture, leaner cuts and a less gamey after taste setting this superb meat apart from a majority of commercial breeds available today. This makes our Lamb and Sheep products a must try even for non-lamb lovers.
We pay attention to the details, providing you with Beef, Lamb & Goat that is not only delicious but nutritious. Believing that how an animal is raised, treated and what it is fed is the difference. Small batch processing is utilized for optimal quality.
All meats are lovingly grown using natural processes, utilizing rotational grazing during prime months and without any known GMO ingredients*, unnecessary vaccinations, hormones or antibiotics.
We try to utilize all of the animal, so in addition to prime meat cuts & custom orders, we offer a variety of products from bones, suet, organ meats to hides & wool products.
Important labeling notes for Lamb/Sheep products:
Meat labeled "Lamb" is 12 months of age or less per a USDA inspector.
Meat labeled "Sheep" means only that animal is older than 12 months per USDA inspectors.
Heritage “Primitive” Breeds of sheep as well as grass-fed, naturally raised animals take longer to raise and obtain butcher weight. These meats may be labeled as "Sheep", however we find the flavor and texture only improves with a little extra time and is SO worth the wait!
Our meats are 100% Pacific Northwest born, raised and harvested.
Never crossing an Ocean to reach you.
We also offer seasonal produce...organically grown and always grown from non-GMO* plants.
* All meat and products are not certified Organic/Non-GMO, we grow the food we want to feed our family, passing that quality on to you. We make every effort to keep it free of unwanted environmental contaminants and genetically modified ingredients without the cost added by certification.
