Sweet Grass Cooperative markets and promotes regional grass-fed, grass-finished and pasture-raised animal products of exceptional quality and value. We return a fair and equitable price to our members and ranchers who uphold the highest standards of humane, holistic, and sustainable land practices, thereby building health and resilience from the soil to the communities in which we live and work.
