BRING THE BEST OF THE RANCH TO YOUR TABLE

ROCKY MOUNTAIN FOREST RAISED PORK
exceptional pork comes from pigs raised in an exceptional way

'FREE THE SWINE AND THE REST WILL FOLLOW'. Rocky Mountain forest raised pork gets its quality from a pastoral method of 'herding' pigs across the land in Black Forest, Colorado. Less than 10% of the pork in the world comes from pigs raised in this nomadic herding style. These herding methods are very similar to the elements used to create the famous hams and cured meats found in Spain, Italy, and Germany. Raising pigs in the forest requires an artisanal level of care from the rancher and provides an iconic place for a pig to be raised. The integrity of our animal care carries through to the pork in a way that is undeniably rich in flavor, rosy in color, and contains high amounts of marbling.

HIGH COUNTRY GRASS FINISHED LAMB
from the high plains of Colorado and Wyoming

Our lamb is strictly raised the way that domestic sheep have been for thousands of years which is nomadically herded on the land. The grasses and plants of the high plains in the Rocky Mountain West where our sheep are raised have the reputation for creating some of the best lamb in the world. Our lamb comes directly from the 'fat' of the land - no grain or confinement feeding yards are involved in any way. The Dorper and Katahdin breeds are a relatively new breed developed in the 1950’s from ancient breeds of Persian and African origins. They thrive in arid climates and have an exceptional meat quality produced from eating native arid plants. These breeds are known in the United States as 'hair sheep' -  meaning that they shed the majority of their wool. Hair sheep have been bred for a very tender and light taste much more similar to high end savory tasting beef. The finishing stages of our lamb involve grazing the animals on lush grasses and plants of the mountain lowlands which are naturally rich in flavor for the animals and irrigated by clean mountain springs and creeks.

GREAT PLAINS GRASS FINISHED BEEF
raised on grassland plains in the shadow of the mountains

For thousands and thousands of years enormous and thriving herds of animals migrated to the high plains stretching from Texas to Montana to raise their young and gain weight. Our cattle are raised in these time-honored nomadic patterns on the western great plains on very large tracts of land in Colorado and Wyoming. Beef raised in these grassland pastures in the shadow of the mountains is arguably some of the world’s finest beef. When most other cattle are herded into corrals each fall to be shipped to grain feedlots, the cattle of Corner Post Meats remain on the land in pastures that are ready and waiting for winter grazing. The short grass plains on the edge of the Rocky Mountains are small in stature, but packed with nutrition even in the harshest winters. From birth to harvest our cattle live on the land as they were intended to. The key to making the beef exceptional in taste is known as the 'finishing stage'. This is the rancher’s art of making unforgettable beef. In the final stages of creating great beef, we take extra care to make sure the animals are on the best pastures we have available when the grasses and plants flourish again in the spring and summer. The breeds of cattle we select are animals that excel on pasture and are often a mix of breeds. Some of the best beef we have created results from crossing Angus, Longhorn, Hereford, and Scottish Highlander. We believe that the taste of beef should reflect the healthy vibrancy and expanse of the prairies in which they are raised. The flavor and satisfying taste contains the important elements of the clean air, fresh water, and plenty of mountain sunshine.
