Highwood Valley Ranch is a fourth generation family ranch situated alonside the Highwood River in Alberta raising Red and Black Angus cattle. Wade and Jaimie Nelson and family work together stewarding the land and water, and producing high quality beef, with a strong connection to both the health of their land and community. “We go back to the basics. Provide good, well raised cattle field to plate. Run less cattle. Sell directly to the consumer. Provide specific cuts of beef. Control the entire value chain, from the animal and the hoof to the steak in the frying pan. In a phrase, make more from less.”
