LAUREL HILL — Running a ranch does a body good in more ways than one, Randy and Tracey Duncan say.

The couple, who moved to the city almost a year ago, own and operate Flyin’ D Ranch, 300 acres where grass-fed brangus and angus cattle graze. 

“It’s a great lifestyle,” said Tracey, a retired school teacher who's now a ranch hand. “It keeps us outside and busy.”

Clients can choose which steer they want and have the ranch transport the animal to a local meat processing facility. From there, the client can select the type of meat cut.

And the steers' origin doesn't come into question, Randy said.

“We only sell animals that are born and raised here," he said. "It's 100 percent source verified from here and also aged verified; we sell all animals less than 2 years old.”

A whole steer deposit costs $500; a half steer deposit is $300.
