Inspiring healthy communities and family wellness, because we believe there’s nothing more valuable in this world than relationships.
Travis and Sarajane grew up on cattle ranches. From a young age they both had a very strong passion for agriculture. They started dreaming of a way they could be involved in the cattle industry for them and their children.
They have always known that someday they wanted to take their beef all the way to the consumer, but it wasn’t until the start of COVID that Sarajane started “SNOWDEN MEATS” as she worked to provide their local community with CLEAN locally grown beef processed with NO ADDED IN DYES OR ADDITIVES.
They love being apart of this movement where consumers are looking to purchase direct from the rancher that raised it! The consumer gets a SUPERIOR product and the producer gets to cut out some of the middle men!
They uniquely pasture grain their beef giving it AMAZING FLAVOR while still passing along the benefits of a grass finished products.
They also are very fortunate to partner with an incredible local processor that DRY AGES prior to packaging the product.
Meet Travis. He is a jack of all trades and has been a huge asset helping get "Snowden Meats" started! To help cash flow, Travis works locally as a full time property manager. Because of his knowledge, Travis oversees our cattle program, diving into the best genetics and methods to use. Travis believes there are huge benefits to having a low-stress cattle handling program. After his work hours and on his day off, Travis stays busy checking the cows and focusing on herd health and raising a great yearling. In Travis’s spare time he is also handy with leather craft and knife making. He is focused on family and being a community builder! Travis has an educational background in agriculture production, economics and plant science.
Sarajane spearheaded "Snowden Meats". Sarajane manages the marketing responsibilities and website development, along with, being a mother to their two children. Her favorite time of year is calving season. She absolutely loves working with the newly born baby calves! In all honesty Sarajane is crazy about cows!! She loves the whole process in regards to cattle raising! Sarajane loves to escape to the high mountain pastures with the kids, Katelyn and Wyatt! She loves to check on the cattle and enjoy picnics playing in the mountains.
