Welcome to Touchstone Angus! We provide Wyoming and Colorado based, grass-fed and grass-finished beef. Touchstone Angus uses over 25 years of research and best practices to provide high quality wholesale beef that places emphasis on great taste, tender cuts, and conscience free practices. Let us share with you the amazing beef that we have come to love and enjoy.
Touchstone Angus started in 1998 in Elizabeth, CO by Brad James. At first the business was just Brad working with a few neighbors to get sides of beef that just tasted far better than what they found at the grocery stores or restaurants. In 2000, Brad moved with his family to Lusk, WY, where they managed a herd of 200-300 head of cattle while expanded sales to Wyoming and Colorado. Brad consolidated most of the cattle processing in CO but continued raising grass-fed beef in Wyoming. Then in 2017, Brad moved the ranch to Torrington, WY where it runs today. We also have started partnering with neighboring ranches with our same practices and along with the same general genetics. Since Covid hit in 2020, we have had to adjust a lot of our sales processes and no longer able to use the same locker plants that used to service us for so many years. However the dream to provide high-quality, healthy, grass-fed beef has never been forgotten.
Brad grew up working with cows his entire life. He has his masters in business and was in the business/medical field earlier in his career but shortly after he sold everything to chase his dreams in ranching. Since then, Brad has studied genetic testing in cows, learned the benefits of grass-fed beef, and loves working with cows. He has been featured in many newspaper articles and magazines on his talents as a grass-fed beef rancher, grown the business and perfected the science of a great tasting steak.
Kate grew up working with her dad on the ranch and learned everything from him. After going to college, she married her husband Garrett who’s in the military. Kate and Garrett love helping out with running the business while they move different places around the country.
In the meantime, Kate has worked with different ranches and farms to gain a better understanding of the business. As well as owning and raising their own cattle as best they can in a military life.
