About Us / Wyoming Gourmet Beef History:
The Wyoming and ranching roots for David Fales began in 1918 when his great-grandparents, grandparents and 9-month-old father left Missouri to homestead in Deaver, Wyoming. Here they cleared sagebrush, planted crops, and raised cattle within a pristine, rugged environment. David was born in Cody, Wyoming, and lived nearby on a farm and cattle-feeding operation in Powell, Wyoming, where he assisted his father in raising and feeding grain-fed cattle and gained great respect for the Wyoming ranchers who endure bitter cold and all types of weather to raise great cattle.
David, founder of Wyoming Authentic Products, first began dreaming about being in the cattle and ranching business when he had an assignment in the eighth grade to write about what he wanted to do when he grew up. Although his expansive business career took him into all major cities within the U.S. and also into Canada, Mexico, and Europe. which provided him valuable sales and marketing experience. His desire to return to his native Wyoming roots and eighth-grade dream never left him.
David always loved Wyoming and always loved cattle! Remembering the delicious beef he ate when he was growing up, he was passionate about providing this same consistently great-tasting, nutritious beef to others. He became increasingly intrigued with the idea of launching the "Wyoming Gourmet Beef" branded, specialty beef business to leverage the rich Western heritage of the state's ranching industry, while also addressing consumers' concerns about the origin, quality, and safety of their food.
David's dream has now become a reality, which he is proud to sharing high-quality, all natural Angus beef products such as beef sticks
, jerky, burgers, franks, steaks, & more to others! The cattle are raised on grass and grains in a sustainable, pristine environment that respects the earth’s natural resources.
