Our Farms

It's About How We Farm

Animal welfare & environmental impact is at the center of it all

Every step of farming—from breeding and raising animals humanely, to implementing regenerative agriculture system—contributes to the amazing flavor of our meats.

We work with nature, not fight against it. And you can taste the difference.

Conscientious Meat is Possible

Practicing our values isn’t about patting ourselves on the back. It’s actually what makes our chicken and beef delicious; because every step of the process affects the health and taste of the meat. These are the standards we hold ourselves to and we ask them to be upheld by our farmers and ranchers.

  • Healthy chickens and beef raised without antibiotics

  • Ample space to roam and forage on natural pasture

  • Creating biodiverse, fertile soil through regenerative rotational grazing

Processing Facilities

To truly commit to changing the food system, we must commit to fair labor practices and livable wages

Cooks Venture is proud to be part of the Oklahoma Quality Jobs program at our poultry processing plant. Participation in the program demonstrates our commitment to livable wages in our county for our employees.

As a vertically integrated business, our chickens are processed at our facility by hand and air-chilled on-site. We only work with partners whose values align with our own. We must be stewards, not only of the land, but everyone on it.
