Root Prairie Galloways raises purebred American Galloways. We are a sustainably managed grass and livestock farm located in the Bluff Country of Southeastern Minnesota. Part of our goal here is that of practicing regenerative agriculture on ground that was once eroded cornfields, the ever increasing health of the soils, the diversity of plants and the birds and wildlife on this farm is a source of pride.

Here at Root Prairie Galloways we finish our beef exclusively and sell our meats directly to the consumer, a high quality flavorful end product is important to our sucess.

We chose Galloways for their ability to produce quality beef in a low input grazing system, known for being easy keepers the moderate sized Galloway can thrive where some other bigger framed higher maintenance cattle would require more feedstuffs to stay in condition. We already know that you can get what appears to be big results with big inputs, to big cows, our aim is to stay away from expensive supplements and yet maintain a productive cow herd.


"We had a taste test last Friday and it just confirmed for us that We want to
  raise Galloway! good flavor and texture! Our chef was impressed with the meat
  because he struggles to find grass fed beef that meets people's steak expectations,    yours did."
                                                                                David A. - Amery, Wisconsin


The Galloway's heartiness and feed effeciency translates into profitability, our Galloways give us excellent results with reasonable inputs on our farm, keeping us competitive in the Grass fed beef market.

Galloway has no breed-up program our genetics are Pure.
