Colorado Farm Switches to Argentinean Farming Techniques to Offer More Wholesome Products

Share Article

Factory farming techniques help produce the lion's share of the lamb and other meats consumed in the United States, but one Southwest Colorado farm has taken a stand to revert back to traditional, organic farming. Fox Fire Farms is raising its animals on a 100% grass diet and treating them tenderly, making a crucial difference that is creating a whole new world of flavor, texture and quality in their products.

There is a wide range of reasons why more Americans than ever are choosing to buy organic food products. Some favor the way the animals are treated, others prefer the natural flavors and still more look to organic foods for added health benefits. The farmers of Fox Fire Farms are familiar with all of these factors, as the rush toward organically raised livestock is helping them thrive. Nestled in the Rocky Mountain range of Southwest Colorado, Fox Fire Farms is helping to give some unique new flavors to tried and true lamb chop recipes by feeding an all-grass diet to their flock.

Since he was 16 years old, owner Richard Parry has been ranching the same family farm. After years of mostly commercial farming, he decided to make a drastic change to the Argentinean system of all grass-fed, free range animals and organic practices to better serve the customers that ate his products. Even in the coldest winter months, his animals feed on special cold weather grasses to keep their diets pure. The end result, Parry says, is a lamb with a truly unique flavor, color, texture and tenderness that comes through in everyone's favorite lamb chop recipes.

"Our product tastes better and is the healthiest product you can feed your family and friends," Parry explains.

In addition to lamb, Fox Fire Farms produces free range eggs and gourmet cabrito and chevon goat meat. The farm intends to add grass-fed beef and organic wine to their products in the near future.

Beyond simply producing superior meats and foods, Fox Fire Farms is aiming to serve their customers with online ordering, premium customer service and a robust website where visitors can find detailed information on their farming practices, the benefits of grass-fed animal products and even a scrumptious leg of lamb recipe. The recipes section of the site revolves around their product offerings, so customers can plan meals as they shop. Some of the highlights include Grilled Indian Ground Lamb Kabobs, Simple Lamb Stew and a Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Leg of Lamb recipe.

"This is one of the few companies that truly believes in customer service," says Brent Walter, head of sales and marketing for Fox Fire Farms. "Most other online stores blame everybody else if things don't show up on time, don't look right or don't work out the way the customer thinks it should. Fox Fire Farms will stand behind its products, and I think that in itself is outstanding."
