Chiricahua Pasture Raised Meats is located in Kansas Settlement, Arizona in the Sulphur Springs Valley along the western edge of the Chiricahua Mountains. This is a high desert habitat with an elevation of approximately 4200 feet. We enjoy four distinct seasons here with temperatures topping out around 105 degrees in the summer and falling to the low 20s in the winter.
As our name implies, our products are pastured meats in the truest sense as our cattle, sheep and poultry are continuously raised on irrigated pastures. Of course, water and protection from the elements are available to them at all times. We do not use antibiotics, hormones or other additives on this farm. The ruminants (cattle and sheep) are fed on pastures that offer a variety of different grasses and legumes to meet their nutritional needs. The poultry free range on the same type of pastures and are additionally given free access to a corn-mineral-protein feed that Josh makes on the farm. This feed insures adequate nutrition for chickens and turkeys which are monogastric (like us).
