Generations of Grass Fed Beef
Matheson Farms is located in Whatcom County of northwest Washington State between the Cascade Mountains and the waters of Puget Sound. We run a cow-calf operation of Simmental, Sim/Angus, and Yak.
The ranch in Bellingham has been in the family for over fifty years. Before that, Lloyd Matheson raised beef cattle, dairy cows, and hogs on his parent’s farm just a half mile up the road. In 1945, he married, started a grocery business, and purchased the present day farm in the 1950’s. Until he retired in 1975, the grass fed beef raised on the farm was sold in the meat shop of Matheson’s Market. Lloyd’s youngest daughter, Sandra Matheson, officially took over the farm and continues to manage the operation today.
Dr. Sandra Matheson is a retired veterinarian, an Accredited Field Professional in Holistic Management and a Consensus Facilitator. She is also a writer, photographer and video/television producer. Currently she serves as the President of Roots of Resilience, the North Cascades Meat Producers Cooperative and Raincrow Film. She recently co-authored a #1 Bestselling book “The Art and Science of Success” along with Matt Morris and many other best selling authors. She is the author of the forthcoming book Thrive After Forty.
Matheson Farms sells breeding stock, club calves, show prospects, and grass fed beef. We also offer consulting, facilitation, video production, and land monitoring services through our new Sustainable Living Education Center.
At Matheson Farms, we manage in a way that takes into account the big picture. We do our best to work with nature and leave the land better than when we received it. Our philosophy is to make “holistic” decisions that are socially, ecologically, and economically sound and balanced—and to help others do the same!
