The Choctaw Legacy
From its early origins with bison and deer meat, leading up to the inclusion of cattle brought to the continent by Europeans in the 15th century, generations of Choctaw families raised animals on their ranches for making their traditional dried meats. By the eve of the Trail of Tears, tribal members owned over 43,000 head of cattle. Finding themselves in Oklahoma, Choctaws took advantage of the Texas Cattle Drives to resupply their livestock and resume their traditional meat-drying methods.
While Southeastern Oklahoma is a breathtakingly beautiful place, let's face it: the weather and environment can be less-than-ideal. Sometimes even outright brutal to the animals who live upon it. That's why breeding in adaptability is so important. And with our incredible staff overseeing the entire breeding process, we know the meat you buy will be the highest quality possible.View Operations
It used to be rather difficult to buy beef in bulk, and when you could, you usually couldn't be sure of the quality of beef you were buying. With the Choctaw Beef program, you can now purchase Whole, Half and even Quarter sides of beef, fresh or frozen, directly from us.View Programs
Modern ranching is never a "one-and-done" deal. These days, ranching quality beef takes a tried-and-true multistep process to guarantee success. At Choctaw Ranches, we work eight different ranches, each with their own unique, very important role to play in the process.View Ranches
It's absolutely true what they say: hard work pays off, and we couldn't be more thrilled to see how much our hard work at Choctaw Ranches is paying off. We're proud to be recognized as providing the highest quality beef in the area. So much so, we are now the official provider for high-end restaurants and facilities, such as Reba's Place.Apply Now
