It all started when A New yorker and a texan decided there had to be a healthier, more sustainable way to raise cattle.

Located just 70 miles west of Washington, DC in the foothills of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, Kattle 1 Beef Company is a working ranch focused on raising 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef. We believe that great beef starts with happy, healthy cows and natural, sustainable pasture management. 

The working ranches of Kattle 1 Beef Company are focused on raising 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef.  All of our cattle are born and grazed in Rappahannock County, Virginia!  Our delicious local grass-finished beef is all natural, antibiotic-free, and non-GMO.

Most cattle are finished on industrial feedlots, where they are fed a mix of antibiotics, hormones, protein supplements and corn. Farmers like Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms in Swoope, Virginia raise their cattle on grass, using rotational grazing and other fundamental principles of pasture management.
