'Empire Valley' (also Churn Creek Protected Area since 1998), located in central British
Columbia, was established in the 1860's. It's majestic, open grasslands benches along the
Fraser River and the hot dry climate is the perfect place to raise Hormone-Free, Open Range,
Premium Quality Beef.
|In April 1998, we struck out together. We leased 'Empire Valley
Ranch' (Churn Creek Protected Area) and have been stewards of
the Empire Valley Grasslands ever since. Through rotational grazing
practices and natural grazing patterns of our cattle we have been
able to restore natural grassland species and enhance native grass
production. In return we were awarded the BC Rangelands
Management Award for 2008 from the Society for Range
Management (BC Chapter).
