MRB Family

Moon River Beef is a woman-owned, family run cattle business. When you purchase from MRB, you are helping encourage sustainable food in Arizona and supporting a local small business. This is truly a family run operation. As with any ranch, each member of the family helps out in all aspects of the operation. We all ride and work cattle, run irrigation on our all natural fields, and work on sales and marketing.

Lisa Khan was originally born in Ohio. She grew up working with animals her whole life. She had originally planned on being a veterinarian until she got the opportunity to go to law school. She spent her career serving the Phoenix community as an attorney working on a wide variety of issues. She has taken that expertise and applied it to the ranching world helping to navigate the complex web of regulations governing ranching on public lands and selling beef directly to consumers.
