Glenn Elzinga - Alderspring Ranch on Wild Rangeland, Happy Cows, and Saving His Life with Carnivore

Read more

Glenn Elzinga (@alderspring_ranch) is a former Forest Ecologist turned Rancher. Glenn and his wife Caryl run Alderspring Ranch, a small artisanal family ranch that has passionately produced award-winning grassfed organic beef for over 20 years in the Idaho mountains. 

Alderspring Cowboys live with the cattle during the summer months, rotationally grazing them over 46,000 acres of certified organic wild permit rangeland, restoring health to ecologically sensitive areas! Grazing these specific wild grasses creates supremely nutrient dense beef, as well! Alderspring has also built a successful online business, shipping organic grass fed beef direct to customers for the last 15 years! Alderspring is a climate positive and carbon negative operation!

#64 Grass Fed Beef from the Mountains of Idaho, with Glenn Elzinga from Alderspring Ranch

Read more
Alderspring Ranch produces some of the best tasting and highest quality grass fed beef in North America. Glenn Elzinga, expert organic rancher and owner of Alderspring Ranch, shares what goes into creating Bulletproof approved beef and why it’. For over 20 years Glenn and Caryl Elzinga have worked hard and stayed true to the land and the cattle that roam on it. It’s a family ranch with a ton of heart and in this episode you will hear Glenn and I really geek out about beef. You will learn about the roots of Alderspring, why it’s so important not to micro-manage roaming cattle, how eating grass fed beef makes you more Bulletproof, and a lot more!

Alderspring Ranch is a real place, a family ranch. Glenn and Caryl Elzinga have grown grass fed and finished beef in Idaho’s Rocky Mountains for over 20 years. It is in the wild and pristine setting of Idaho’s high Pahsimeroi Valley that they found the ideal place to raise their certified organic Angus beef.  In addition, Glenn’s background in forest ecology and Caryl’s as a PhD in plant ecology specifically equipped them to manage their landscape-level ranch comprised of over 70 square miles of high elevation wildlands- one of the largest certified organic ranches in the U.S They are experts at producing top quality cuts of beef for the discerning public. They are the opposite of a corporate outfit or a front through which to funnel odd cattle. Their passion is to grow the best beef you’ve ever had, and do it in a way that benefits all parts of an agricultural system, including the consumer, the land, the community, the cattle, and family.

#42: Alderspring's Glenn Elzinga, Grass-Fed Beef and a Bulletproof Protein

Read more
With training in forestry and forest ecology, Glenn Elzinga began his forestry career in Maine. In the mid 1980s, he moved to Salmon, Idaho where he worked as District Forester for the Salmon BLM for over a decade.
As his family began to grow, he realized he wanted a better way to raise kids than leaving them for work all day. So began his current career in ranching. After ranching for 17 years, Glenn's cattle herd has grown from 7 head to over 600. He keeps his hand in forestry by working with his wife, Caryl, on consulting projects and by horse-logging occasionally with his two Belgian mares, Pet and Pat. He hopes to train his new draft Suffolk geldings, Red and Snap, to log as well.
