From Harris Ranch beef and Carlton Farms pork to Draper Valley chicken and Reister Farms lamb, our full-service meat departments feature the best, freshest meats available. Each of our meats is sourced from a single company that we consider to be the best in their specialty. Through our collaborations, we’ve developed a close partnership with each of these vendors. Read more about our relationships with specific farms and ranches below.
Our Beef & Harris Ranch
All of Zupan’s beef is provided by Harris Ranch, a family-owned and operated cattle farming operation with a commitment to humane and sustainable practices since 1937.
Harris Ranch animals graze on grass for 80 percent of their lives. They receive a corn-based diet, developed by on-site nutritionists, for the remaining 20 percent. In an effort to maximize their commitment to the humane treatment of cattle, Harris Ranch constructed and operates out of a structure designed by Temple Grandin, the noted authority on the humane treatment of cattle.
Our Harris Ranch beef is:
- Always fresh, never frozen.
- Graded “Choice” or “Prime.”
- Ground fresh daily, at each location, from full muscle meats with no added by-products.
Grading system & terms:
Choice or Prime
This grading system is used to measure the amount of marbling in a piece of beef. Marbling refers to the white flecks and streaks of fat within the lean sections of meat. Marbling is what gives beef its flavor, juiciness, and tenderness. Prime beef has the most marbling, while Choice cuts have a little less.
Product can be traced back to its place of origin.
Only the best of the USDA Choice and Prime grades are considered for the Certified Angus label. This grade ensures each piece of beef is incredibly flavorful, tender, and juicy due to the high amounts of marbling per cut.
Our Pork & Carlton Farms
Local and family-owned, Carlton Farms partners with a multitude of growers throughout the Pacific Northwest. We chose Carlton Farms for our pork because we believe they produce the best tasting, healthiest product in the industry.
Carlton Farms pork is:
- Free of antibiotics and hormones
- Raised on a grain-based vegetarian diet
Pork is delivered to Zupan’s twice a week to ensure freshness.
Zupan’s Honey-Cured Spiral-Sliced Hams are created especially for us by Carlton Farms.
Our Chicken & Draper Valley

Our Turkey & Shelton’s
Zupan’s is a partner with Shelton’s, a family-owned company that has specialized in turkeys since 1924. These free range turkeys are all-natural, vegetarian fed, raised with no antibiotics, hormones, or animal proteins, and are never injected with saline solution.
Our turkeys are stamped USDA grade “A” (which indicates the highest quality available), and are virtually free from defects.
Turkeys are available in 8 to 36 pound sizes throughout the holidays.
Our Lamb & Anderson Ranch
Based in Brownsville, Oregon, Anderson Ranch is the product of five generations of lamb-raising expertise and care. Reed and Robyn Anderson produce the highest quality meat – tender, juicy and delicious – while growing their business in ways that support and protect the land they love.
Anderson lambs are processed locally, within 1-10 miles of the pastures they were raised, and in an USDA-inspected plant. 100% grass-fed and Certified Humane, Anderson Lamb really is a cut above.
