Our Team

We share a passion for continuing the old Montana ranching tradition of producing high quality beef while preserving open spaces for our cattle and the wildlife to roam.
original homestead of Pintler Mountain Beef

Steeped in Tradition

The ranch house (the original burned down in the 1940's) that was homesteaded in the early 1900's by Phillip Sarsfield Carey, also known as "Sarch" or "Sarg." In addition to ranching, he worked at the Rumsey Mill just south of Philipsburg (a common theme with small ranches is the necessity to have a supplemental income!). Later Bill Christensen lived there; and then it was a bunk house for hay crew in the summers. Now unfortunately time is catching up to it.

Ranch History

Healthy Cows, Healthy Beef

Pintler Mountain Beef cattle spend their entire lives consuming grass in the summer and a mixture of grass and alfalfa hay during the winter and they are never given growth hormones or antibiotics. This means they are as healthy as the elk that graze along side of them.
