CRM started marketing beef in 1999. At that time, the Jacober family was in the construction business in the Roaring Fork Valley and looking for a path back to their agriculture and land stewardship roots. Growing up on a cattle and sheep farm in southern Colorado, the Jacober kids were raised with the utopic values of caring for the land and animals above all else. Those values remain as the driving force behind CRM with the addition of caring for our consumers.
