The Caribou Ranch was once known as a legendary recording studio located in the beautiful mountains of Boulder County, Colorado. Artists went there to enjoy the scenery, relax, write music, and many famous rock ‘n’ roll artists recorded some of their best albums at the Caribou Ranch in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
Today at the Caribou Ranch, we humanely raise cattle to produce flavorful and sustainable grass-fed beef. We never use antibiotics or hormones and utilize planned grazing to ensure that our cattle are helping the environment that they live in to thrive. The land feeds the cattle and the cattle help to cultivate the land.

The History of the Caribou Ranch
In 1972, the first album was recorded in the legendary Caribou Ranch recording studio. At the time, the barn was only partially converted and it was discovered that the dirt floors only contributed to the acoustics. Located in the beautiful mountains of Boulder County, Colorado, the Caribou Ranch recording studio went on to become a peaceful retreat for some of rock ‘n’ rolls biggest names where they could enjoy the tranquil outdoors during the day and record music throughout the night.
Artists such as John Lennon, Elton John, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Billy Joel, and Chicago recorded some of their most iconic albums in that barn in the Colorado mountains. The Caribou Ranch continued to be home to one of the world’s most famous recording studios until 1985 when a wildfire consumed part of the barn.
Introducing Our Grass-Fed Beef
Today, Caribou Ranch is still located in the Colorado mountains, and the peaceful, tranquil scenery that inspired some of rock’s greatest music remains. That land is now being used to raise cattle to humanely produce some of the most delicious grass-fed beef.
What Makes Our Beef Different
At Caribou Ranch, our grass-fed beef is sustainably raised without the use of any hormones or antibiotics. We take great care to ensure that our cattle are being humanely raised and that our cattle farm has a positive impact on the environment. We love our community and the beauty of Colorado and we do everything within our power to preserve it.
Our Commitment to Quality
We are committed to raising healthy cattle that produce well-marbled, tender, and flavorful grass-fed beef. Our finishing methods help us to achieve superior flavor profiles and nutrition that cannot be found in grain-fed, feedlot produced beef.
Our Commitment to the Environment
We allow our cows to roam free over the Caribou Ranch land. This helps aerate the soil and distribute seeds for pasture as well as sequester carbon, retain soil moisture, and increase organic soil matter. Raising cattle in a planned, free-range manner allows us to do good for our environment while producing some of the best beef that you’ve ever tasted.
Our Commitment to the Community
We love Boulder, Colorado and the people who live in this community with us. We strive to provide them with a sustainable, fresh, and local option for grass-fed beef, while ensuring that our planned grazing keeps the environment healthy for us, our cattle, and our community.
