The River Watch Beef Story
Since 2007, our family has raised quality Grass Fed Beef. Each year, we’d process an animal for our family and friends. Folks really loved the beef and would tell their friends. In a few short years, more and more people were inquiring how to purchase our beef. In late 2016, we established River Watch Beef (based in Kansas City) to deliver our all-natural Grass Fed Beef direct to your door.
We’re different versus most beef you will find at the grocery store. Store-bought beef is usually raised in a ‘concentrated feed yard’ and fed a diet of corn, food waste, additives and more. River Watch Grass Fed Beef is sustainably-raised (free range) on nutritious natural and native grasses in Colorado and Kansas. We process our Grass Fed Beef in ‘small batches’ and take an artisan approach to dry age (21 days) and hand butcher eat cut.
River Watch Beef is based in the Kansas City metro area (Shawnee, Kansas to be specific). We currently deliver our Grass Fed Beef to customers in Kansas City and we also Ship Nationwide (sorry, we cannot deliver to AK or HI). Have a question? Give us a call at (800) 373-5210. You can also check out our Photo Gallery, Blog and Frequently Asked Questions pages.
River Watch Grass Fed Beef is 100% Natural: NO Additives. NO GMOs. NO Added Hormones. No Food Waste. NO antibiotic-laced feed. NO BS.
We offer true pasture-to-fork premium beef. We appreciate your support.
The Grass Fed Beef Difference
Grass-fed beef has been shown to be a healthier option vs. traditional corn-fed beef. *Most grocery store beef is corn fed*
• Less total fat
• More heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids
• More antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin A, D, E and K.
• More conjugated linoleic acid, a type of fat that’s thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks
What Our Customers Are Telling Us
My grandfather was a drover on the Chisholm Trail; my great-grandfather was a co-founder of the Kansas City Livestock Exchange Company. I made the official film for the American Royal Livestock, Rodeo and Horse Show and consider myself a connoisseur of beef. River Watch Beef is, hands-down, the finest I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy.
I made a pot roast expecting it to taste like...well...pot roast. Nothing fancy, nothing amazing. I did what I always do for pot roast--set the temp for 250, let it braise for a good five hours with some potatoes, onion, rosemary, and carrots. But I got the sense it was not going to be just any pot roast. The kitchen started to fill up with this gorgeous scent--when I carved it up for dinner that night, suspicions were confirmed. The roast was the most complex, flavorful hunk of meat to come out of my oven. Thanks, River Watch Beef, for bringing meaty nirvana to my kitchen table!
I really love the idea of getting aged, grass-fed beef directly from the producer. River Watch Beef is leaner than store-bought beef and much more flavorful. Buying directly from River Watch means I know where my beef is coming from. That makes me more confident that I'm getting exactly what I want.
To be able to buy grass-fed beef from a qualified supplier, who offers some of the best beef my wife and I have ever eaten -- without paying high-end restaurant prices -- is a foodie's dream come true. We've almost gone through our first order! Thank you, River Watch Beef. You had us at the first bite.
