Della Ranches


See how Utah beef farmers and ranchers are rethinking the ranch to raise sustainable beef through land-saving, wildlife-preserving, and award-winning environmental efforts.


Utah ranch makes environmental stewardship a part of their every day life

Della Ranches in Grouse Creek, Utah is owned by the Tanner Family who takes great pride in their land and environmental stewardship practices. The family works with many local, state and federal agencies to manage their natural resources and improve the quality of the range. Invasive species are a big threat to the natural landscape and resources. With help from these local agency partners, Della Ranches conducts prescribed burns on up-rooted invasive trees. The family has also worked with Utah State University to monitor Sage-Grouse and improve the local wildlife habitat by monitoring the age and height of plants in the area, as different animals, both cattle and wildlife, have different needs. For their stewardship efforts, Della Ranches was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"It is a great sense of heritage and something that I hope we can instill upon the next generation, the importance of the family and the efforts that our family has made to make our ranch a fifth or sixth generation ranch." - Blaine Tanner, Owner, Della Ranches
