Fitch Ranch
Artisan Meat Company

OUr story

Fitch Ranch Artisan Meat Co., family-owned and operated is located primarily on the Western Slope of Colorado.  It all started in 2011 on a small farm with a vegetable garden, a handful of cows and sheep, as well as free-range chickens, ducks, and turkeys.  Fitch Ranch Artisan Meat Co. has grown to ranch more than 20,000 acres with several hundred head of Black Angus Cattle, and partners with ranches that raise animals with compassion and a focus on land stewardship.

Our USDA Inspected meat processing plant, licensed to process Certified Angus Beef also processes Wagyu, Lamb, Pork, and Beef for many ranchers throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Kansas, and Nebraska.

Our Philosophy


Fitch Ranch Artisan Meats employs a 30-30-30-10 quality philosophy, focusing on every step from farm to table to ensure excellence. The first 30% assesses our cattle's genetics, upbringing, and environment, emphasizing stress-free, regenerative practices. The second 30% looks at humane processing, skilled butchery, and stringent food safety. The third 30% considers the end user's handling, from storage to cooking, ensuring the beef's quality is preserved until consumption. The final 10% rewards exceptionalism in any area, allowing for outstanding genetics or processing to uplift the final product, even if cooking is imperfect. This comprehensive approach, applicable to various products, highlights our dedication to maximizing quality at each stage.

Breckenridge Distillery

In a continuing effort to reduce our footprint, Fitch Ranch and Breckenridge Distillery work together to feed the distillery’s spent grains which are nutrient dense and a favorite meal for our cattle- while utilizing what would otherwise be disposed of in a landfill.
