Your Food Supply #18: Organic Beef

21/08/2010

Meet Linda & Jeff Mannix of Durango, Colorado. They’re Texas Longhorn cattle ranchers and suppliers of good organic beef. They own The Santa Rita Ranch. According to their website, they “raise a reputation herd of full-blood, registered Texas Longhorn cattle on their Santa Rita Ranch near Durango, Colorado. They range free in lush mountain meadows in the spring, summer and fall, and are fed locally-grown hay during the winter months. Market steers are finished at the ranch on the Animas River with hay, vitamins and minerals, and nutrient-rich, local brewer’s grain”

I shot this footage at the Durango Farmer’s Market. I think you’ll like it.
