RANCH-HERS ON A MISSION
Christina and Hailey create an evolving bio-dynamic herd and environment that flourishes from the soil ecology all the way to the finished animals that live on the land.
Born and raised with a passion for animals that goes beyond common understanding, Christina cannot fully explain how deep the animals run in her heart.
We Love Minnesota, the local food scene, Foodies, and so much more about our Albany/Avon community. Our connections have led us to Maple Grove, MN as well as Minneapolis, MN with dozens of connections around the twin cities metro local food scene, and farmer’s markets.
‘I personally have struggled with food related illness, allergy and intolerances. Raising “Safe” food is more than a novelty, it’s a necessity. Being a very discerning eater, I have been able to connect easily to the Ketogenic, Atkins diet, Carnivore, Paleo lifestyle with natural ease.’ ~Christina
Being Health Conscious in food production ties directly as one of the cornerstones of our most basic NEEDS. It’s with great passion, love and desire that I share this talent for animal production with you through the meat proteins we produce.
I simply couldn’t do everything I do without the support and partnership with my family! Hailey and I work together to get it all done every day.
Hailey is taking care of the day to day tasks when Christina is off to markets in the twin cities, or making deliveries or drop offs to the various Minnesota area.
What’s your Biggest Food Concern?
What food on a shelf has a face?
Who grew it? Where??
At Rolling Hills Cattle Company, ALL Grillin Meats come WITH the face of your Farm-HER’s!
You get to know us, our products, and what we’re about.
Restaurants and Grocers have a tough time offering this perk reserved to buying direct consumers who purchase directly from the farm-her’s!
Convenience/ Are we Local
With several convenient regional and Twin Cities pick-up location options, we bring the supply to you! We travel 70-90 miles from our rural cattle friendly farm neighborhood.
Want to meet us at one of the farmers markets we deliver to in MSP area each week? That’s Perfect! Or, Better yet, why not visit us at the farm and pick up in person! The choice is yours.
See our list of market locations and times below.
Yes, We’re Local! We produce our meats right here in central Minnesota!
This is one of our biggest concerns too! We expertly raise every animal from day 1! Our mama cows and bulls are like family. They live up to 20+ years. Every Pig is born HERE too! We purchase chicks, and some lambs from very caring and conciencious farmers. Then we raise them on our pastures. They get the care that gives them happy and healthy lives, their entire life.
We all are concerned about the environment! Carbon sequestration, micro-organisms in the soil, even global warming. How can we help?
Eating animals that live on and cycle nutrients produced on the natural land makes a HUGE impact! We only harvest 1 animal at a time. Our animals don’t harm the micro-organisms, bugs, or even the plants if they have a choice. They will naturally take 50% and leave 50%. This causes regeneration at a much faster rate.
I work with the USDA processor directly to have every pound professionally prepared, and packaged for you. Processing is the last and most key part of the process of making our produced livestock to tasty food.
We love it! All food begins with LOVE! We love being your farmer and partnering with you to better our local economy, as well as the land and animals in our care.
YES! We always get our meat back. The Butcher won’t “skim or take” our meat. You always get what you pay for. If you pay for 20 pounds, you get 20 pounds. It’s that simple.
IS THE FARMER FAIRLY COMPENSATED
With farmer’s “retiring” or simply selling for less than what their actual cost of production is, sadly farmer’s are loosing their livlihood and identity every day.
HERE, We have calculated ALL costs, and we pay ourselves a fair wage when we sell the finished products.
If you think food is expensive, try raising a few chickens and calculate the costs like a business would. It’s an eye opening experience.
We have a fair scale operation to be efficient, and a fair scale operation to create fair compensation to the farm-hers too! Let us do the hard work for you, and enjoy the meats we raise.
Flavor, Tenderness, Juciness, Omega 3’s, Omega 6’s, CLA’s… the list goes on.
There’s so many details that go into getting everything just right. From what and when the animals graze, the minerals, the management, genetics of the animals, it becomes mind boggling.
You need to be condifent in our ability to figure our the details so you can simply get a cut of beef, pork, chicken, lamb, turkey etc. that has a consistently appealing profile and enjoy it.
Rest assured, I can boggle any mind with hours of details on what all goes through my head to make the details come together for a consistently amazing premium quality product.

EMPTY NESTERS CUSTOMER
“We love the variety and options of the CSA for our needs! The CSA isn’t just for families, it works great for us! We’d rather invest in our health with great healthy food. We really appreciate that you have been able to deliver close to us, and offer the special items for sharing with our family at the holidays. Thanks for all that you do!”Sandee & Jim
Food Sensitive CUSTOMER
“It’s hard to look back and see where we were before we found Christina, and Grillin Meats. This Pork, saved our son’s life! These folks go above and beyond to help people with food issues! They even raised chickens for us to start our own back yard flock. Everything from deliveries, to trialing methods of raising animals without our triggers in the animal’s feed has been THE difference that has saved our son, and helped him thrive. Thank you, Thank you! We love you so much!”The Meyers
