Blue Ribbon Angus Beef Family Farm Partner: Willow Creek Farms

Willow Creek Farms is a captivating Idaho ranch in the shadows of the mountains along the winding Snake River. Once you’ve been there, you don’t want to leave. Just ask Willow Creek’s owner, Chris Drakos, who has farmed potatoes and raised cattle there for decades.

“My father was a farmer, and I’ve been a farmer all my life. I think everybody has a little farmer in them,” says Chris. His passion for working the land expanded to include Angus cattle, and he’s never looked back. “It’s a journey from day to day. But the hard work is worth it,” he adds.

Willow Creek’s General Manager, Cory King, whose father once worked the ranch with Chris, fell in love with the area too. “I can’t put into words what people are missing. There’s no better place to raise a family than a farm or ranch,” he says. “I grew up on a small farm in Utah, so it’s in my blood.”

Cory sees raising cattle for Blue Ribbon Angus Beef as an honor. “We know quality Angus. From the fields to the feed to the animal’s health, our best effort means the best meat for meals.”

The Blue Ribbon Angus Beef brand is raised by ranchers like Chris Drakos, whose ultimate goal is providing wholesome Angus beef.
