Jeremy Faucette and Shad Crowther, were born and raised in a small town in southern Colorado, in the San Luis Valley. Growing up as cousins, as well as best friends, our memories include enjoying all the freedom and exploration that living on a farm or ranch provides. We are both 5th generation farmers and ranchers who are very passionate about the agricultural industry. Each of us is proud to continue to individually operate our own family’s farm and ranch. Ensuring this heritage and legacy can be passed down to our children is crucial. The intent to instill the values of hard work, patience, determination, and persistence in our children is prominent in our everyday lives.
Being proud of the cattle we raise, we found ourselves questioning the meats available to consumers in our markets. The prices are outrageous for the quality of meat being offered. We realized we could share what we raise and provide top quality meat that is worth every penny spent. The dream of building a business together became a reality when we established Cattle Mountain Meats in 2022.
Our Angus cattle, bred for quality and a gentle temperament, are born and raised on our ranches. Calves are born on open pastures in the spring. During the summer, our cow-calf pairs live in the high mountain ranges, where they have abundant grass, space, and water. Our summer ranches are located in Taos County and Rio Arriba County. Take a ride on beautiful HWY 64 in the summer or around majestic San Antonio Mountain, and it’s a safe bet you’ll see some of our cattle grazing the nutritious high mountain grass! We raise our cattle naturally, without any growth hormones, steroids, or unnecessary antibiotics. We are proud members of the American Grassfed Beef Association. All of our meat is USDA inspected and approved to ensure quality and safety. Each individual package of meat shipped is labeled with the USDA’s official seal!
Our farms produce high quality grass and alfalfa hay. Our herds are raised on a nutrient rich forage diet without grains. We utilize rotational grazing on our farmland at the end of the harvest season. All of our cattle are grass-fed and grass-finished! Producing high quality, natural beef is a priority! We are proud to be your trusted source for quality grass-fed, grass-finished beef you can feel confident feeding to your family!
