Hi! We’re Cole & Kelsey Bolton. We take pride in our slogan “Austin Bred and Fed” in that we are one of the few ranches that can truly say we raise cattle in the Capitol City. I’m a 3rd generation cattle rancher, having grown up on a cattle feed yard in East Texas, and Kelsey is a 2nd generation rancher, born and raised in the Austin area.
Our ranch consists of Black Angus and Red Angus bloodlines. We focus heavily on the best genetics, because the pedigree controls 45% of the marbling in the animal. Our beef is pasture raised, with no antibiotics and no growth hormones.
Studies have shown that the natural environment that cattle are born in positively impacts the meat quality. We do grain finish our cattle at the ranch the last 90 days before slaughter for several purposes: marbling, efficiency, and consistency. Our ration is a culmination of grains all grown locally in Central Texas and non-GMO.
We guarantee our beef to grade Choice or Prime. Our pigs are pasture raised and live in a natural environment where they can lay in the mud, play in the sun, or relax in the shade. Being good stewards of the land is important and we hope to be able to spread our vision and continue to grow within the industry.
