About Us
Malheur River Meats is a family partnership between Rob & Michelle Stokes and Mike & Linda Bentz. Our ranches reside in the high desert region of Malheur County in southeastern Oregon. The story unfolded years ago with a shared friendship and ambition to produce healthy range and pasture raised meat, the way nature intended. With the highest regard for integrity, we believe in the traditional ways of producing an honest superior product that taste great and is healthy for you our customer. Proper nutrition efficient management and handling animals with respect, compassion and the least amount of stress while practicing sustainable agriculture practices is the model we feel makes the most sense. Our grass fed / pasture raised animals nutritional needs are met by following Mother Nature's seasonal growth cycles. Animals are rotated throughout our ranches to provide balanced nutrition and allow the vegetation to restore itself in between grazing rotations.
