Ned Ludd began using Carman Ranch beef in August of 2009. We were interested in finding a high quality 100% pastured beef supplier in Oregon. The samples Cory delivered to us were packed with amazing full, beefy flavor with deep herbal notes.

While it may seem like high quality grassfed beef would be out of our price range as a small restaurant, we took some of the lesser known cuts from the whole animals for our charcuteries program, and our customers are really excited about the tongue and the tenderloin carpaccio we’ve been serving! We appreciate our relationship with Carman Ranch and Cory, who is receptive and committed to her cattle. As we expand our business model, which is dedicated to high-quality handcrafted food and the relationships we have with our growers, we look forward to growing with Carman Ranch.
