"When I first tasted Stemple Creek Ranch's 100% grass-fed beef burger at their ranch, I was shocked. Their beef has such a great flavor with clean finish. The beef doesn’t leave any after-taste, unlike corn-fed beef. For healthier diet purpose, we avoided using red meat at my school lunch program. But, since we found their great quality grass-fed beef, we can offer kids friendly dishes like hamburgers, meatloaf and ragu without any hesitation and the kids love them. Another thing I really admire about Stemple Creek Ranch is that they practice the highest standard environmentally sustainable operation. They really are making an enormous effort to take balance between ranch business and sustainability."

"Whenever we grill steaks from Stemple Creek Ranch at Chez Panisse, we are reminded of just how distinctive and delicious well-raised grass-fed beef can be."

"The beef has been getting rave reviews! My husband says it is the best beef he has ever had (and he is a traveler and an eater!). Our family has enjoyed a beef shank, a stew and a T-bone steak already…looking forward to more. Thanks, Loren!"

"We LOVE our beef and lamb! Since this was our first time ever doing this we really didn't know what to expect. I cannot tell you how impressed we are with the quality and flavor - beyond words. I used to smother my burgers with cheese and condiments. No longer with this ground beef - it has such a strong deep flavor on its own. Simply delicious! We will be ordering from Stemple Creek Ranch again next year only it will be more beef and lamb."

"I am a butcher with 23 years experience, and I have never seen consistency and quality like this before in grass-fed beef. I have processed prime grade conventional beef to grass-fed farm beef and none of it stands up to the quality of Stemple Creek Ranch meat, and my customers say the same. We have been through four beef now and it has caught on like wild fire! Thank you Loren and Lisa for taking the time and care in keeping the "real McCoy" ranch procedures alive."

"The 100% grass-fed beef we bought from Loren is the best beef we have ever tasted; both flavorful and juicy. It is quite comforting to eat beef and know exactly where it came from and how it was fed. This was our first experience buying from Loren and we just put in an order for more."

"I bought a quarter of beef a couple of weeks ago. I just want to say thank you. Your meat is simply amazing: tender, juicy and tasteful. A very different experience than the other organic meat I was buying from other places. I would be happy to recommend your business and I am looking forward to buying more next time."

"Stemple Creek Ranch consistently produces some of the best beef I have ever had. The attention to detail and the pride with which Lisa and Loren run the ranch translates into the outstanding quality and flavor of the meat. You can taste how and where the meat is raised, like a fine wine. There is such depth of flavor, you can taste many different layers and complexities and the quality is outstanding. Thanks for ALL that you do!!!"

"My family and I absolutely loved our lamb from Stemple Creek Ranch. It was excellent and a great value too."
