About Us

We are third generation ranchers and every day is a battle to keep ahead of the herd and to sustain “normal” ranch operations. Located in tiny Ten Sleep, WY [pop. 304] — where conditions are rough and the weather can turn a normal work day into hell in the blink of an eye. It takes a certain type of individual to endure this type of environment and thankless lifestyle, but it’s the only life we know and we wouldn’t ever trade it for city life. Family ranchers are a dying breed. With increasing competition from giant, corporate ranches, we are just trying to stay one step ahead and continue the traditions passed on to us by our forebears. The result is that Carter Country is like no other place on earth and Carter Country Meats is like nothing you ever tasted before.
