RL Valley Ranch

Athens, Ohio (Athens County)

RL Valley Ranch is run by husband and wife team Rob and Leah Phillips. RL serves as the finishing operation for The Butcher & Grocer’s beef offerings. The farm has been in the Phillips family for 5 generations.

RL Valley Ranch is a solar-powered farm where the beef cattle are given a highly specialized feed mixture of non-GMO grain that is grown on RL fields. The corn is processed on-site. The cattle are NEVER given hormones or antibiotics and are finished in a natural environment where they roam around and eat at the feed bunk whenever they feel like it.

Rob and Leah have created a great partnership with Jackie O’s Brewery in Athens, Ohio. Twice a week RL picks up a truckload of spent brewer’s grain, which is mixed with corn feed to create a tasty mixture that the cattle love.
