A little about our beef:
The families of Painted Hills Natural Beef are ranchers in Wheeler County, Central Oregon. They raise cattle and steward the land in the shadow of the state’s famed Painted Hills for generations. While times have changed in the last two and a half decades, ranching the way nature intended has not. We’re proud to pasture raise our cattle without added hormones and no antibiotics. We raise a beef product for you as striking as the natural wonders it’s named after.

Above all, we thank you for trusting us to feed you and your loved ones. Of course, we’d love to see the finished Mongolian recipe, and we hope you’ll tag us in a post on social media.
