Our Conversation with Bill and Kelli Parker

We visited our largest supplier, Parker Pastures in Gunnison, and sat down with Bill and Kelli Parker for an interview. We discussed holistic land management, farming as a way to regenerate the land, food as medicine, and why customers make the best business partners. You do not want to miss their incredible story!

Parker Pastures Beef

Our cattle are 100% pasture-raised, grass-fed, and grass-finished.  They graze on the pristine, lush, and high mountain pastures of our beautiful Gunnison Valley and eat their fill of a wide diversity of plants, drink clean mountain water, bask in the sun, and interact within their natural social system.  Our passion for the Devon breed as well as our passion for Holistic Management combine to create well-marbled, flavorful, and healthy beef that you can feel good about feeding to your family.   Holistic Management means the cattle are also regenerating the ecosystem in which they thrive. Careful pasture management and a late autumn harvest assures that our beef is consistently very well marbled, tender, and delicious.  You can be assured that Parker Pastures does not use any grain, antibiotics, growth hormones, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides.  Our cattle are a Step 4 in the Global Animal Partnership (GAP). 



Born with a passion for healthy lands and humanely raised livestock, we (Bill and Kelli Parker) founded Parker Pastures in 2006 after years studying and gaining experience in livestock production, ecology, and Holistic Management. Along with our 3 children, we own, manage, and provide most of the labor for this family owned business.
