Meet the Wiens Family
With the arrival of our incredible grandchildren (6 and counting), our family is now raising its 5th generation to be involved in Colorado agriculture. As the Front Range of Colorado has changed over the decades, we are blessed to still be able to conveniently provide Premium Beef from our Douglas County Ranch just a few miles South West of Castle Rock.
We care about our land and our animals
We raise our cattle humanely. We regularly rotate cattle to fresh, new pastures where they have freedom of movement to enjoy fresh new water and cool mountain air. We care about helping you put on your family's table what we believe to be; the best-tasting, highest-quality WR Premium Beef.
We are Beef Quality Assurance Certified and implement the best management practices to assure our cattle are raised with the most humane standards. Visit www.bqa.org to learn more about these humane standards.
Welcome to Wiens Ranch
A Wiens Family Memory
Told by Tom Wiens
My dad, his 2 brothers, and my grandfather broke sod in eastern Colorado during the 1940s and planted and harvested thousands of acres of wheat. This led to expansion and other aspects of agriculture including the registered cattle business
My dad Joel was a custom combiner and later developed a significant anhydrous ammonia distribution business helping farmers bring nitrogen to their crops to increase yields. He developed one of the largest registered cattle herds in this part of the country with operations in Colorado and Western Nebraska. My mother Phyllis would recruit my brother and me to help name. Below is a picture of Mom and Dad with our 1977 World Champion Polled Herford Bull, "Mr. Beef"!

Dad later made the decision to change our cattle operation to Black Angus and we still produce Angus Cattle today.
