HYDESVILLE, CALIF. — Eel River Organic Beef products are now available in Whole Foods Markets in Northern California, Oregon and Washington.
“The abundance of rainfall and mild climate in Humboldt County and Northern California enables our family-owned and -operated ranches to provide what we believe is the finest, 100% organic grass-fed and grass-finished beef to consumers,” said Clint Victorine, rancher and Eel River Organic Beef founder. “We’ve been providing Eel River products to Whole Foods Market stores in Southern California, Las Vegas, Arizona and Hawaii since 2011, and it’s great that more consumers in our home region and throughout the Pacific Northwest can now find Eel River Organic Beef at their local Whole Foods Market stores.”
Eel River Organic Beef ranches use regenerative agricultural practices, and cattle are rotated through the pastures. The cattle are both raised and finished on the same pastures, so they are not stressed by unnecessary transportation. This also cuts down on fuel usage, making the process more sustainable.
“Sustainability is the guiding principle at Eel River Organic Beef. Being 100% certified organic means Eel River Organic Beef is non-GMO and is raised without any antibiotics, growth hormones, feed additives, or animal by-products,” said Victorine.
“Eel River Organic Beef focuses on a whole animal utilization program that provides fresh, boxed beef primals, retail-ready packaged steaks and grind, bone broth, sausages, organic chorizo, and other processed products, providing everything to enjoy in an effort to leave nothing to waste,” the company said.
“We believe that Eel River Organic Beef is just the type of high quality, great tasting beef that Whole Foods Market customers are looking for in our meat department,” said Beau Klose, executive leader of the meat team for Whole Foods Market. “We’re proud to offer Eel River Organic Beef in even more locations and introduce them to a new customer base so close to their hometown.”
