AZ Ranch is a small organic family farm south of Tumwater, WA.
We produce organic grass fed, grass-finished beef
and eggs from organic pastured poultry.


2015 - We now raise Dexter cattle - these beef are smaller, gentler, and tastier than Angus and Hereford.

Our Australian shepherds help with the livestock and live in our home.  They have champion pedigrees, in herding and agility.  Luna and Ravi had one litter of 11 puppies, and we kept 2 favorites, Nova and Arrow.

Ravi, the sire, is talented with cattle, well-behaved with horses and cats, gentle with children and puppies.   Ravi is no longer available to stand stud.  He is DNA certified and healthy - see details at his 
pedigree link. All our Aussies are MDR1 negative (a good trait).
