Colvin Ranch

The Colvin Ranch is a family owned and operated grass fed cattle ranch located in south Thurston County, Washington, near the small town of Tenino. The ranch was homesteaded by Ignatius Colvin, who came to Washington on the Oregon Trail in 1851 from Boone County, Missouri, and is one of the oldest ranches in the county still owned by the original family.

Five generations later, the Colvin Ranch family heritage continues through humane livestock handling, stewardship of the land and sustainable grazing practices that allow native and endangered plants to flourish alongside high-quality, all-natural cattle finished on grass.
