Ranch and Food Business Expanding National Reach with help from LEDA
April 5th, 2021 – Beck & Bulow, a homegrown business that manufactures and sells high-quality meats and meat products directly to restaurants and consumers, has been awarded state and local economic development assistance to expand its production operations, Economic Development Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes announced today.
Founded by CEOs Tony Beck and John-Paul Bulow, Beck & Bulow is set to hire 24 employees in the next three years and an additional 28 in the next seven years for a total of 52. Additionally, two interns from Santa Fe Community College will be starting at the business in the fall, one to learn processing and the other to learn food marketing and advertising.
The business also plans to purchase its own warehouse, processing, office, and production space in Santa Fe. In March 2021, Beck & Bulow opened a new butcher shop location in a leased building at 1934 Cerrillos Rd., just off St. Michael’s Drive.
The shop offers delivery and pickup for phone and website orders in Santa Fe and surrounding areas. It specializes in bison, elk, wild boar, beef, lamb, poultry, and is now offering wild caught Alaskan seafood.
Beck & Bulow leases 5,000 acres in San Miguel County to raise grass-fed beef and bison, but has been doing most of its processing in Colorado. With this expansion, the company will be able to bring its butchering and manufacturing back to New Mexico and provide more product selection of its sausages, burger patties, jerky, and portion-controlled steaks.
