Small Angus Cattle ~ Big Grass Fed Taste
Welcome to American Alps Ranch! We are proud to offer you our all natural Grass Fed Lowline Angus beef. We raise our cattle here on our beautiful ranch in the Skagit River Valley of Washington state.
No hormones, steroids, antibiotics or grains are ever used on our animals. They eat grass; the food nature intended and drink pure water straight off the glaciers in the North Cascade mountains. Our Lowline Angus cattle graze freely on lush pastures in the fresh air and sunshine. This is good for our cattle, good for the environment and good for you. And the grass fed flavor of our beef is delicious!
Our Ranch Store is open for the summer! If your summer plans bring you to the beautiful North Cascades, stop by and see us. Our store is open Friday and Saturday 11 am - 6 pm and Sunday 11 am - 5 pm. Take Hwy 20 East to Marblemount, go across the bridge and follow the signs.
