Approximately 1.5 million acres are currently under the Blue Goose Cattle umbrella.

Having been established in 1993, The Blue Goose Cattle Company Ltd. has grown from a family owned working cattle ranch to what currently is a fully vertically integrated, certified organic entity, from the birth of a calf to the plate of the retail consumer, all under our own Blue Goose brand.
