Corner Post Meats, Colorado Springs, CO

We are creating the change we want to see in agriculture and by people buying from us, they are doing something to support that.  It's keeping ranch land in colorado from being turned into a subdivision.  It's wildlife habitat.  Its tons of beef, lamb, pork, chicken coming from right here.  The customer is your best certifier on that...  What we are doing has positive impacts from so many angles- from birds, to soil microbes, to really good meat." -Dan Lorenz

Corner Post Meats was founded by Dan Lorenz and Adrienne Larrew who still lead the team and run the farm today from The Black Forest outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Corner Post has strategically created a ranching system that is positive and an asset to the ecosystem, instead of it being a liability.  Their goal is to make the land healthier by raising animals on a forest foraged diet and utilizing nomadic practices.  

The National Audubon Society in 2014, leased Corner Post Meats ranch to them.  They soon earned certification from Audubon's Conservation Ranching Initiative for implementing “regenerative grazing practices” that mimic the grazing practices of historic bison herds that once roamed the plains. The techniques allow a variety of native grasses to grow and thrive by allowing pastures to rest and recover. That, in turn, provides habitat for imperiled grassland birds, whose numbers have declined by more than 50 percent over the past 50 years.

Corner Post employs nomadic, high-intensity, short-duration grazing methods that build soil and improve its health. The churning hooves of cattle, tilling noses of pigs, and the fertilization from chickens restore a natural cycle of disturbance and growth to the land. Strategically timed grazing helps control invasive species. The highly invasive Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense) that used to grow in monocultures across the ranch, for example, has now largely disappeared.
