Support Local Families in Need

The Tenino Community Service Center provides food to families in need throughout our community. They also deliver food to seniors living in rural areas who are homebound. The need is growing. We want to help, and we hope you'll join us.

Now, when you place your order online with us, you have the option of adding a chuck eye steak to donate to the food bank. It's listed separately on our online store, so you'll know which steak is for your donation, and which one is for you. We'll deliver your donation directly to the food bank. Plus, we'll match your donation, so for every package of meat that you donate, we'll be able to provide dinner for two families. 

The next time you place an order with us, consider adding a chuck eye steak to donate to the food bank. And when you cook up your own steak at home, you'll know that another family will have a meal on the table tonight as well.

Thurston Green Business Designation

This time of year, our ranch is visibly green. But all year round, we follow sustainable business practices to reduce our carbon footprint while preserving and protecting our natural resources. Because of our environmental stewardship, we're now officially recognized as a Thurston Green Business.  We talk a lot about our conservation work to restore and enhance the native prairie habitat at the ranch, but we don't often talk about the other steps we take to ensure that we operate our business as a whole in a sustainable way. Some of these business practices include: limiting the transportation of our cattle minimizing packaging, reusing materials, and recycling conserving water and protecting streamsconsolidating deliveries to reduce driving milessupporting local businesses by buying local The conservation easement in place at the ranch ensures that the native prairies here will be protected forever. Working with partners like NRCS, WSU Extension, Thurston Conservation District, Ecostudies Institute, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife, we've completed projects including: contributing to the recovery of the golden paintbrush and its removal from the federal list of endangered and threatened plantsimproving Mazama Pocket Gopher habitatincreasing plant diversityprotecting Scatter Creek stream bedsmaintaining Garry Oak ecosystems planting hundreds of trees And there's more in the works. We're currently working on a five-year project to eliminate scotch broom and restore native prairie plants on a nearby property, and creating silvopasture on a section of land that had been previously neglected.  Check out the other local businesses who have been designated as a Thurston Green Business and shop local.
