Roast Cuts

You asked, and we listened! We are now accepting orders for individual cuts. We are excited to offer this option to you! Ground beef, stew meat, steaks, roasts, and even organ meat—we have you covered!

We are passionate about knowing where our beef came from, what it ate, how it lived, and how it is processed and shipped! You should be too! At Cattle Mountain Meats, we proudly raise our beef from birth to processing. Not only is our beef better for the environment and the animals, but it is also better for your health. Plus, with our convenient shipping option, you can get it delivered right to your door!

If you are ready to experience the mouth-watering difference between Cattle Mountain Meats beef that is grass-fed and grass-finished, then don’t wait! This is an opportunity to try the freshest, most sustainable meat available. Elevate your taste!

Respectfully,

Hi All. My Friday and Saturday farmers markets went into hibernation, and I need to offer my services to everyone, from Pecos to the Santa Fe market. I come to you and have a battery to run my equipment. Text me to set up an appointment. See the price list below. Let’s carve that turkey instead of smashing it. This is my semi-retired gig, so I’ll be around for a long time. Thanks.
