The Cattle's Journey: Candid Behind the Scenes Look

By: Elin Ganschow, Owner Sangre's Best Beef: Sept. 8th 2022

CAUTION: Real Beef Photos Ahead

When you become a Sangre's Best Customer you get 100% transparency in where your beef comes from.

We show you everything because we have nothing to hide. We also do it to help educate you, and create an earthly connection to where your food comes from.

You will actually be able to be proud of how your beef is raised.

So, just for you,  here's a candid behind-the-scenes look at the final stages of our 2022 Summer Beef Herd


All of the "Big Beef Marketing Geniuses" say you should never show your customers photos of the cows or from the butcher. They say it's too real and people can't handle that. Well, we think that's a bunch of hogwash. We know our customers are smarter than that, and care about every step of the process. Plus, if "Big Meat" ever showed you photos of their process, you'd be sick to your stomach. It's not the beautiful, holistic, respectful, and fulfilling journey that a Sangre's Cow takes. 

There's nothing more important to us than transparency between you and your food. It's the ONLY way you can trust your beef source (and all food in general). Even the best labeling at the grocery store can be false and misleading. You have to see it for yourself. 

So, to fly in the face of the "Big Meat" Industries marketing advice, below is a look at the ENTIRE journey of our 2022 Summer Beef Herd.

Moving Your Cattle to Their Final Bountiful Pasture

      "I purchased some ground beef in a bulk package a few weeks ago. today we had our first burgers, and I have to say, I've never tasted better beef in my life. Just added a reserve down on a beef share this fall"  - Georgia L.

      "This beef is the best of the best! and you remove the middleman in the grocery store and get it directly from the Rancher, Elin." - Maura D. 

      "I just picked up a box of the hamburger and 20 pounds of the skirt steak. I grilled hamburgers last night and the burgers were beyond excellent. Perhaps the best burger I ever had. Ordered another box right away. I am marinating 3 lbs. of the skirt steak for carne asada tonight. I expect it to be just as amazing as the hamburger. Thanks to Elin and Sangres Best for this outstanding service. You have a customer for life." Glen L.

      We recently purchased 20# of ground beef after it became impossible to find at our area grocery stores! My mom used to split a half a cow with us years ago and I had forgotten how much better grass fed beef is! Once we buy a freezer we will be purchasing more meat! - Kim s. 

      "We ordered a 20lb box of the ground beef. It comes ready to go in easy 1lb packages. Tastes better than anything I have bought in the store. It is local Colorado Beef. Super easy pickup. Everyone was very nice. Love being able to support a local Ranch." - Kady M. 

      "I just made my second order in two weeks. The 40lb bargain box meat is so wonderful I didn’t want to miss out on the wholesale ground beef. You won’t be disappointed with your purchase." - Tammy C.

      "What a blessing to get such a store of quality beef today at such an amazing price! Thank you for reaching out to families and providing a way to fill our freezers with wholesome food! You made the pick up super easy! I really appreciate it!" - Laura R.

      "Just received a whole beef from the folks at Sangres Best. What a pleasure to work with.....contactless pickup was great as well. Will continue to do business with. A++++" - Darin M. 

      "This is the second time I've ordered from them. The meats we've received have been amazing. So flavorful and tender. Easy to order online and super convenient to pickup. All I had to do was park, let them know I was there, popped the trunk and they brought it right out, loaded it into the car for me and I was done. Great people!" Karen S.

      "We ordered from Sangre’s Best last week and the whole experience was excellent! Everyone was super nice and courteous, especially when I broke my toe and had to delay my pickup. When I arrived, I was able to text them and they put the order in my hatch. The meat, as always, is superb and I love the individual packaging. Highly recommended! We will be ordering again!" - Jenna H.

       "Best tasting grass finished beef I’ve ever had. Worth the wait to get. Elin is amazing. Will absolutely order again when we need to replenish our freezers!" Tiffany M. 

      "Listen... I need to give credit where credit is due. Ordered a whole cow in the fall and have thoroughly enjoyed it up-to-date. Last night grilled filet mignon, ribeye and a skirt steak. This was the most tender, Flavorful steak I have had in a very very long time. Please give yourselves a pat on the back as you have acquired a lifelong customer!" - Armon M.

      "We ordered a 1/4 of a cow and we are blown away with the quality and the taste of this beef! We will never go back to the local grocery store for beef! Grass-fed beef is a total game changer and everyone needs to try it." - Asca H.
