A Family Business Since 1923
Christensen Ranch Beef is a family business; it’s been that way since Edward R. Christensen began building the ranch in 1923. Cousins Eric Christensen and Kathy Wood and their families are continuing in the honorable traditions of their family: doing things right, following through with what you say you’ll do, and raising Red Angus cattle naturally, with transparency from pasture to plate.
Eric, Jodi, Tyler & Allie Christensen
Eric moved back to the ranch in 1997 after spending several years working with his fraternity, Alpha Tau Omega, at the national level after earning his business degree. Eric and Jodi were married in 1999; in 2000, their son, Tyler, was born and Allie, their daughter, was born in 2002.
Donald, Kathy, Connor & Kirsten Wood
After completing her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Colorado State University, Kathy worked at the Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver in a neurobiology lab for several years before returning to the ranch to learn the family business in 1989. She married Donald Wood in 1996; their son, Connor, was born in 1998, followed by their daughter, Kirsten, in 2000.
