About Us

The Little Seven Seven Ranch raises grass-fed Highland Beef on our family owned and managed hillside ranch. L77 beef is USDA packaged and inspected. Known for flavor and tenderness, Highland Beef is higher in protein and Omega 3s and lower in fat and cholesterol than conventional beef. We are raising this slow growing heritage breed to produce the best beef possible.

Highland Cattle is known for superior flavor and tenderness. Our cattle browse over 1800 acres in The Columbia River Gorge, enjoying a biodiverse diet of perennial native grasses and brush. Fields, forest, rocks and hills allow this ancient and hardy breed to live the lifestyle for which they were bred.

The L77 is dedicated to all natural practices best suited for our cattle and the land which supports them. Highland Cattle do very well with little interference. A robust breed, Highland cattle are known for happily eating what other cattle would leave behind. First, they go after the grasses. They then move to shrubs and weeds, cleaning up the land. They are an important part of our forest restoration projects. The L77 is continually working with the state to reduce the risk of wildfire on our land. By keeping "fuels" (grasses, plants, shrubs, weeds) under control, our Highland Cattle do their part in reducing the risk of wildfire. A varied diet translates into healthier beef. Our customers enjoy coming to The Gorge and seeing the impressive Highland Cattle visible from public roads.

Bred to travel, room to roam is important to Highland Cattle. Our pastures are large, some over 200 acres. This allows cattle to traverse fields and forest, drinking from streams and eating brushes and grass. When they have "cleaned up" a pasture, we move them on to a fresh piece of land. Good for the cattle, good for the land.

Our forest land has never been subject to chemicals or pesticides. Need we say it?: We do not use growth hormones, antibiotics or grain.
