The Colvin Ranch family

The Colvin Ranch family

The Colvin Ranch is a family owned and operated cattle ranch located in south Thurston County, Washington, near the small town of Tenino. The ranch was homesteaded by Ignatius Colvin, who came to Washington on the Oregon Trail in 1851 from Boone County, Missouri, and is one of the oldest ranches in the county still owned by the original family.

Five generations later, the Colvin Ranch family heritage continues through our humane livestock handling, stewardship of the land and sustainable grazing practices that allow native and endangered plants to flourish along side our high-quality, all natural cattle.

We provide customers with locally raised, high-quality, grass-fed beef. Our cattle are born and raised on the Colvin Ranch on an all natural diet, with no antibiotics, hormones or additives. Our grass-fed beef is healthy, with higher levels of vitamin E, C and beta-carotene, and the “good fats” known as Omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
