The Quivira Apprentice

Meet Karalyn

Karalyn Stanhope was born in the Bitterroot valley and raised in the mountains ranging from Montana to Colorado, Kara started her journey at Oxbow Cattle Company in April through the Quivara, New Agrarian Program. Growing up outdoors and around animals, she has always had an appreciation for agriculture. Wanting to expand the love for ranching she joined the program to develop her knowledge in regeneration producer practices and understand what healthy, sustainable food is all about, making oxbow a perfect fit. The New Agrarian Program and Oxbow allows the best learning and growing opportunities for Kara in her agriculture career. 

“We were at a house on Maloney ranch. They were surprised to know that they were eating something that was living just down the street! Perfect texture on the t bone. No gristle. Nice thick cuts. Thanks guys.”

“Just fed your beef to my over forty soccer teammates. (Two T-bones, two rib steaks, and two burger packs). They were amazed! I was pleasantly surprised. I was told that grass finished is an acquired taste but I guess it is the preferred taste in my opinion. It tastes like beef is supposed to taste in my mind.”

- From Charlie Sullivan

“Had Oxbow steak again last night  (three thumbs up)!”

- From Dan Propp

“I feel good about feeding Oxbow beef to my two small children, knowing they are getting the highest nutrition and best quality beef around. Thank you for providing Missoula with that option!”

- From Janelle Stauff

“Hi Bart!

The meat is amazing. My family and I absolutely love the flavor. The ground beef has so much more flavor it is making every meal better! I recommend you to everyone I talk to and hopefully some buy from you.

Take care,
