Eel River Organic Beef’s 100% grass-fed and grass-finished organic beef is now available at select Whole Foods Market stores located in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington.
“The abundance of rainfall and mild climate in Humboldt County and Northern California enables our family-owned and operated ranches to provide what we believe is the finest, 100% organic grass-fed and grass finished beef to consumers,” said Clint Victorine, rancher and Eel River Organic Beef founder. “We’ve been providing Eel River products to Whole Foods Market stores in Southern California, Las Vegas, Arizona, and Hawaii since 2011, and it’s great that more consumers in our home region and throughout the Pacific Northwest can now find Eel River Organic Beef at their local Whole Foods Market stores.”
From humble beginnings in 1996, with only one commercial cow-calf, Eel River Organic Beef has grown to become one of the nation’s largest providers of 100% organic beef born, raised, and harvested in the USA.
“Sustainability is the guiding principle at Eel River Organic Beef. Being 100% certified organic means Eel River Organic Beef is non-GMO and is raised without any antibiotics, growth hormones, feed additives, or animal by-products,” said Victorine.
Eel River Organic Beef ranches incorporate regenerative agricultural practices with the potential to improve water and air quality, enhance soil health and increase the land’s ability to retain water and grow healthy, nutrient dense food. Cattle are rotated through pastures to maximize beneficial impacts. They are finished in the same sunny pastures where they were raised, without the environmental impacts of trucking to feedlots. Since Eel River Organic Beef is raised and finished on the West Coast, there is no long-distance transport stress on the animals or unnecessary use of fuel.
Eel River Organic Beef focuses on a whole animal utilization program that provides fresh, boxed beef primals, retail-ready packaged steaks and grind, bone broth, sausages, organic chorizo, and other processed products, providing everything to enjoy in an effort to leave nothing to waste. As an alliance of small independent ranches, Eel River Organic Beef is also helping to sustain and reward family farming and ranching. Plus, the beef is 100% traceable back to the individual ranch and animal.
