Our grass-fed beef


All of our cattle are born and raised on our farm in northern San Luis Obispo County. The bulls are selected for grass finishing qualities and turned out with the cows so that the calves will be born in the spring when the grass and legumes are most abundant. The calves will receive no antibiotics or added hormones and are treated in a manner that emphasizes minimal stress (no electric hot shot or hot branding irons). The calves are weaned using only a fence to separate cows from calves. The calves are then moved to improved pastures and are rotated among pastures where they will remain for the next year and a half.

The rain-fed pastures are improved with legumes, such as vetch and clovers, along with annual and perennial grasses. Irrigated pastures are needed during the long, hot summer months and are planted to strawberry clover, alfalfa, trefoil, orchard grass, ryegrass, fescue and bermuda. The animals are then returned to the rain-fed pastures in the fall.
