Douglas Ranch
"...In the Panoche Valley of Central California, Douglas Ranch raises Angus Beef cattle, White Dorper meat sheep, and several varieties of pigs on large natural pastures. The Douglas family is committed to sustainable agriculture. Our managed grazing practices assure that the land is naturally fertilized and native grasses thrive. The animals are continually rotated on the pastures in step with nature's way. No chemicals, manufactured fertilizers or any unnatural amendments to the land are used. Animals are not treated with hormones, antibiotics or chemical medications. The meat is processed and USDA inspected by a small certified organic processing plant. The animals have minimal handling and humane treatment..."

beef"...At TomKat Ranch, we’re dedicated to the health and preservation of our land and our community. Originally, our cattle have primarily functioned as a conservation tool.

By following these practices, we have brought back native grasses, helped reduce erosion and decrease our carbon footprint..."

Paicines Ranch
"...We are proud to offer free range 100% grass-fed beef and lamb raised in central California. All of our grass fed beef animals have spent their entire lives grazing on the rolling hills of the Paicines Ranch. They are free range animals, never confined in a feedlot. We do not use growth hormones or routinely fed antibiotics. Our pastures are certified organic, and are never sprayed with herbicides or pesticides. We are extremely proud of the quality of our beef and the sustainable way in which it is produced. Grass finishing beef is better for the animal, better for the planet, and better for you..."
PL Bar Ranch
V6 Ranch
beef"...Many have known for years the health benefits of Parkfield life for people. Its beauty, wide open space and clean air have sent V6 Ranch Guests home refreshed, rejuvenated and restored. It turns out Parkfield is also ideal for raising cattle. The semi-arid climate raises grasses high in nutrients that, combined with the irrigated pastures on the V6 Ranch, create healthy, tender and tasty grass-fed beef. With this in mind, why send cattle to feedlots where many of the natural health benefits of beef are lost when cattle are finished on corn? Our grass-fed cattle live out their lives at the V6 Ranch on green pastures where they are not only happy cows but healthy cows too..."
