"The fourth-generation owners of eastern Wyoming’s Bootheel 7 Ranch know good things take time: Their family has spent the past 100 years raising grass-fed cattle in pursuit of perfect tenderness and marbling. Then again, sometimes great things happen overnight—like their pandemic pivot from monthly pickup points for their dry-aged beef to home delivery ($50 order minimum) along the Front Range. Bootheel’s Black Angus cattle graze on thousands of acres of native grass in Lusk, replenishing each pasture with their natural fertilizer before ranch hands on horseback move them along. It’s a regenerative cycle that leans into the ranch’s “cowboy way of doing things,” says Kelly Kugler, who manages the distribution side of Bootheel’s two-part business from Parker while her brother-in-law’s family runs the ranch. For a flavor boost, the animals are fed a blend of hay, alfalfa, corn, beets, and spent grains from Colorado breweries for 30 days before being butchered. Apparently, it works: In 2019, then Urban Farmer executive chef Chris Starkus selected Bootheel’s 90-day dry-aged New York strip as the main course for his guest appearance at New York City’s James Beard House." —Courtney Holden, 5280 Magazine
