Adelaida Springs Ranch
produces 100% grass-fed Angus beef. Our cattle are bred and raised naturally on our home ranch in the coastal mountains of Central California. Our rich spring grasses and legumes produce cattle that are “grass fat” at two years, with no dietary supplements or additives.
We harvest at the seasonal peak in late spring, right here on the ranch with a USDA-inspected mobile harvest unit from J&R Natural Meat and Sausage (www.JRMeats.com) of Paso Robles. Then the beef is dry aged for 2-3 weeks before it is cut, vacuum packed and frozen. We sell 25 lb. boxes of beef that include, approximately:
- 6 lbs. steaks
- 6 lbs. roasts
- 8 lbs of ground beef in 1 lb. packages
- 5 lbs of short ribs, stew meat, shanks, oxtails etc.
We also carry 20 lb boxes of ground beef and 10 lb boxes of organ meats (heart, tongue, liver and kidneys). We ship only to California. Watch our short video to learn more about our Lamb Club.

Albaugh’s Frosty Acres raises purebred
Shorthorn cattle. All our animals are synthetic hormone and antibiotic
Our cattle are unique in that we can date their lineage
back to the 1820s via the American Shorthorn Association. The Shorthorn,
because of its ability to efficiently convert forage and its proven marbling
and early finishing characteristics, is the ideal breed for the production
of choice, gourmet, grass-fed beef.
We believe you will find our grassfed beef to be
of the finest and highest quality you will find anywhere. All of our
cattle are raised on native grass and forage, breath clean, fresh mountain
air, and drink from crystal clear streams and springs from the surrounding
Cascade Mountain Range. Our beef is aged three weeks, cut, vacuum sealed,
then flash-frozen before being shipped to you.
We invite you to browse our website and learn more
about us, our heritage and history, and about the cattle we believe will
provide you with the finest eating experience anywhere.
We sell USDA approved whole, halves and quarter beefs.

Brandon Natural Beef offers Colorado’s traditional 100% grass fed, small ranch beef to consumers in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We partner with Elin Parker Ganschow of Music Meadows Ranch in the Wet Mountain Valley near Westcliffe. Elin comes from several generations of ranchers and has been conducting a grass fed program for over 15 years. Music Meadows was recently placed under a conservation easement with the San Isabel Land Protection Trust, preserving its abundant natural resources forever.
On Music Meadows, our cattle graze on 100% native alpine grass and drink live water from mountain streams. In 2014, the Wet Mountain Valley was blessed with abundant rain. Our cattle ate well and our beef tastes amazing.
Our cattle never receive growth hormones or antibiotics. Elin personally selects each animal for our grass-fed program, cares for them, and keeps comprehensive records on each one. When you purchase Brandon Natural Beef, you can be confident about where it came from and how it was processed.
Our cattle travel just 90 minutes to be processed, so they endure minimal stress. At the processing plant, bar codes ensure that Brandon Natural Beef stays segregated from other beef, allowing product traceability and source verification. You can be certain that you are getting humanely processed 100% grass-fed beef.
Order steaks, slow-cook braising cuts, and ground beef online. Our goal is to provide the best value for 100% grass-fed beef. This fall we implemented a centralized pickup program for the Bay Area. We also offer smaller packages and individual cuts which can be shipped. We believe our Quarter Cow Purchase Program and 20-pound mixed 100% grass-fed packages offer the best values.
Each month, we vary our offerings. They feature: premium and mid-cut steaks; roasts, short ribs, stew meat, or brisket; and ground beef, hot dogs or brats. During the holidays we feature Prime Rib Roasts and Tenderloin Roasts, as well. All our beef is fresh frozen, packed in cryovac, and stored at minus 20 degrees.
We also partner with other amazing 100% grass-fed providers, including Lava Lake Lamb, Hat Creek Grown and Richards Grass-fed Beef.

CC Family Farm in the foothills
to the east of Sacramento in Penryn.
We are fourth generation egg farmers located in south
Placer County. We are still a family operation with three
generations living on the farm currently.
Our family got into the egg business in the 1940's
in southern California. In those days, they had over 20,000 chickens.
We deal with much smaller flocks now and handle things very differently.
But the same passion for a quality product is carried on.
We utilize sustainable practices without the use
of fertilizers or pesticides. Our chickens are kept in a safe house at
night and then allowed out on our Crimson Clover pasture to eat grass
and bugs all day.
We are very excited to provide our customers with
Pasture Raised Organic (certification pending) eggs year round. We sell
our eggs from the farm, and at the Foothill Farmers Market Association in
Auburn on Saturday mornings year-round, Whole Foods in Roseville
and Sacramento, Confluence Kitchen & Market in Auburn, and Newcastle

Chileno Valley Natural
Beef is a family owned business in West Marin, California.
We have been selling grass-finished natural beef for
three years on a ranch that has been in the family since
1862. We take pride in offering beef that has never seen
the inside of a feedlot or kill room. The only grain they
have received is from the grasses that have gone to seed
in the pasture. These animals live their entire life on
the gentle rolling hills and pastures of this 600-acre
ranch. This lean Angus beef is free of antibiotics and
growth hormones. No pesticides are used on the pastures.
Our beef is offered by the split-quarter, half,
or whole. A split quarter is a combination of both the front and rear
quarters. For those wishing less than a quarter, you have the option
of making up your own group, or letting us assist you. A typical quarter
is about 100 pounds, costs approximately $270.00 and includes everything
from lean ground sirloin to prime rib and porterhouse steaks. Since there
are many choices that can be made in dividing up the animal, each customer
decides which of the cuts he wishes and how it is to be packaged. We
can also arrange for delivery if pick-up is a problem. We offer our meat
at near cost in order to introduce the public to our product. We believe
that we offer great value to consumers of our meat.
Purchases can be made or information obtained by
calling the ranch, by e-mail, by accessing our web page, or by writing

Connolly Ranch, located in southern San Joaquin and Alameda Counties,
is a family owned and operated cattle ranch providing all natural, all
grass-fed beef direct to consumers.
For over 135 years and through five
generations Connolly Ranch has served as good stewards of the land and
has a long history of working with government and universities on habitat
restoration and research projects. Connolly Ranch Natural Beef is
from our Black Angus herd. Animals are born and raised on Connolly Ranch
on open range land until they are gathered on horse-back into the corral
and readied to sell.
Other than milk from the cow, Connolly Ranch
Natural Beef calves graze only on nature’s grasses. They
are never kept in a feed lot and are not fed any corn or grain to finish
them. We supplement with only salt blocks and occasional locally grown
hay primarily when we gather, or if annual grasses are low due to drought. Connolly
Ranch Natural Beef cattle are not given any hormones, implants,
antibiotics or grain and they are not fed any supplements with animal
by-products. Current veterinary and animal practice guidelines are
followed to ensure cattle are healthy, well cared for and humanely treated.
These management practices combine to provide locally grown natural beef.
Our beef is young and lean. The little fat
that the animal has naturally
may be yellow from the grasses the animal was eating prior to sale. Also,
because our beef is younger, the cuts will be smaller in size. When
we say Locally Grown, All Grass Fed, All Natural, we mean it.

DeyDey's Best Beef Ever is the marketing
arm for Circle JN Ranch where we focus on producing the best
beef we can. Our quality program starts with the right genetics
of cattle. We
have chosen Lowlines, a derivative of Angus, because they are smaller
(60% the size of Angus), gentle and easy to handle, finish well (i.e.
marble well) on grass, and taste great.
are great believers in Joel Salatin’s “Salad Bar Beef”program
and are proud to follow it pretty closely. Beef
is very much like honey in that the taste will vary with the
particular grasses the animals eat. Our irrigated pastures
are filled with grasses that produce great tasting beef. We
rotationally graze our cattle on our pastures, providing them with an
all-you-can-eat salad bar of grasses each and every day, and recycling
the beeves' waste products directly back to our pastures. We raise
all our grasses for our cows ourselves. We purchase mineral
supplements and salt to insure the cows stay healthy. We
do not feed any hormones, antibiotics, animal byproducts, or use any
chemicals such as insecticides in our program.
In order to produce quality meat, beeves
must have some intramuscular fat to be juicy and tasty. Using
ultrasound technology, we are able to determine prior to harvesting that
our beef will grade “Choice” on
the USDA grading system. We process our
beef at a local Abattoir and have monitored their process from their
humane harvesting, through dry aging to final vacuum packing and slow
freezing. Our beef is dry aged for two weeks to tenderize and concentrate
its flavor. Vacuum packing right after freezing preserves
its freshness.We are not certified organic at this time but adhere to
all practices of the National Organic Program for Beef.
In addition to beef, we also raise broilers seasonally,
beginning April 1st after the danger of frost has passed and continuing
until the end of November. We believe that there is a great synergy between
our beef flock and our chickens and that they both contribute to a sustainable
system which produces quality meat and enhances the environment. Our chickens are certified
organic through Organic Certifiers in Ventura, CA.
look forward to helping you with your beef and chicken needs. We appreciate
the opportunity to be listed with folks like us who care about
their health, the environment, and the quality of life of their animals.

Ranch produces grassfed beef, lamb and pastured natural pork in a rural
valley near Paicines, California near San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area.
ranch is run by Rani and Don Douglas with organic practices and is sustainably
managed. The pastures are not sprayed with chemicals and are kept
lush with rotational grazing. Animals are treated humanely and
are not confined in barns or small enclosures. Mothers and babies
are sometimes briefly fenced away from other herd animals during the
first few days of birth. They all enjoy the lush irrigated pastures as
well as native natural pastures giving them daily choices of what they
naturally prefer to browse on. The animals are never given antibiotics
We raise Angus cattle (the meatiest and most
tender), Dorper sheep (the mildest and tastiest), and several cross
breeds and heritage Berkshire pigs (more marbling in the meat). Cattle
and sheep are raised on grass only—no grain. Pigs are raised
with free choice on pasture, and supplemented with organic milk and
an organic feed supplement. The pigs are happiest when they are sampling
grasses and forbes and allowed to wallow in cool pools of mud.
Animals are born and raised on the ranch, and are
harvested humanely and taken to an organically certified processor. The
meat is vacuum sealed and frozen at the plant to ensure you will receive
the freshest products. Cuts are packaged in small quantities to
allow our customers more flexibility for meals. Beef is gently aged for
delicious flavor. The lamb meat is not “gamey” tasting
because Dorpers are “hair” sheep with much less lanolin than
wool sheep. This prevents the stronger taste many people object
to in lamb. The pork cuts are very moist and delicious. Ham and bacon
are naturally smoked without nitrates and nitrites. We sell meats
in many sizes but most popular are the Sampler Pack, ½’s
deliver to most of the Bay Area, Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito counties,
and we ship anywhere.

Drakes Bay Family Farm - Lunny Ranch.
The Lunny Family has produced high quality farm products
on the Lunny Ranch in Marin County for most of the twentieth
century, and they continue to do so into the twenty-first. Today,
the Lunnys raise Marin County’s only certified organic
beef herd and Marin County’s only certified Grass-Fed
beef herd on Marin County’s first and largest certified
organic pastures for livestock production.
By managing this herd as a “closed” herd,
the Lunnys have eliminated the potential of importing diseases with purchased
cattle from out of the area. The ranch is situated in the heart
of the Point Reyes National Seashore, with the Pacific Ocean bordering
one side of the ranch and Drake’s Estero bordering the opposite
side. This moist, marine environment provides for excellent pasture quality. The
winter supplementary feed provided to their herd is certified organic
grass haylage produced by the Lunnys on their ranch.
Ultrasound has become an important component of their
herd management. This technology provides “inside”
information that is invaluable to the grass finisher. Rib eye area, intramuscular
fat %, back fat thickness, a tenderness score and a stress score are
all recorded for each and every calf. These traits are all highly heritable
(except the stress score), making more rapid genetic gain possible in
their closed herd. Most importantly, over the years this information
has been giving the Lunnys the information needed to project the likelihood
that the individual animal will finish well on grass and provide a wonderful
Beef is all USDA inspected and vacuum packaged. Quarters
and halves are also available by pre-orders.

Emmer & Co. has a mission to rebuild the poultry industry from the ground up by starting with the best tasting, healthy, 100% pasture-raised slow-growth chickens, raised with regenerative farming practices that leave the land better. We produce the only chicken that meets all the demands of today’s consumers: slow-growing birds raised on pasture and pasture only using methods that improve the environment.
Our birds have dense meat with rich boldness and deep chicken flavors, and a thick, flavorful skin that will brown into a savory, crispy crust when you roast your bird. When you taste an Emmer & Co. bird, it’s like tasting chicken for the first time.
- Emmer & Co. chickens are 100% pasture raised on open, unrestricted pastures in Red Bluff, California. See for yourself in a virtual reality farm visit at emmerandco.com/experience
- Emmer & Co. adheres to the best animal welfare standards, and regenerative agriculture practices that promote soil health. Our chicken is raised on non-GMO vegetarian feed and humanely processed.
- Emmer & Co. sought out an alternative to the industrial Cornish Cross birds, so we raise a slow-growth breed that is suited for living healthy, active lives on our Northern California pastures. Our chickens take two times as long to grow as industrial birds, which ensures that they never suffer from health issues relating to fast growth, and have healthy immune systems that never need antibiotics.
- 100% pasture raised slow-growth chickens are healthier than conventional birds, which makes them healthier for you, too. And their high activity levels and foraging on pasture leads to delicious flavor.

Chickens are raised outside in chicken tractor pens,
and are moved onto fresh pasture daily, which provides a large portion
of their nutrition. Although not certified organic, the chickens are
raised humanely and eat grass on a pasture that is never sprayed with
chemicals. Of course the lamb is grass fed, but instead of being turned
out in a single pasture that they'll overgraze and undergraze simultaneously,
they are moved frequently to keep them on rapidly growing grass. The
pigs are also raised on pasture, and are moved to new areas several times
in their lifetime.

Free Hand Farm is a pasture-focused farm in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, located on the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Colony. We milk a small herd of Jersey and Jersey cross cows for our herdshare members, as well as raising grassfed lamb and pastured eggs.
The cows are moved to fresh pasture regularly, and only receive 2–6 pounds of grain per day depending on their energy needs while being milked. [Note: Eatwild's criteria allows dairy cows to receive up to 6 pounds of grain per day.] The grain is organic and soy-free, and our goal is to breed for animals that do well with no grain and cut all grain out of the picture in the coming years. Mamas raise their own calves, and we only milk once a day, allowing more time for grazing, ruminating and rest. We avoid antibiotics and any harsh chemical treatments except in dire emergencies (haven't had one yet!) in favor of homeopathic and herbal treatments for our cows.
Milk is bottled daily in glass and only available to herdshare members. To find out more about what a herdshare is please check out our website or contact us.
Our Jacob and Blue Faced Leicester cross lambs are born and raised and finished on pasture and never treated with hormones, antibiotics, or harsh chemicals of any kind. We offer lamb seasonally by the cut or whole/half lambs, as well as raw wool and wool products. Occasionally we offer registered Jacob breeding stock as well.
We also offer pastured eggs from heritage breed hens who are rotated through the fields like the rest of our animals, eating bugs and plants as they go. Hens receive organic, soy-free layer pellets, grit, and produce scraps from a nearby organic vegetable farm.

An Oregon native, Bernard Smith makes his home in Concord, California and raises his animals in Oregon's Willamette Valley, providing his customers with the highest quality protein available anywhere.
The Willamette Valley soil, renown for its Pinot Noir vineyards, makes great beef too. You can taste it in our Angus and Hereford beef, the terroir's flavor underlies the animals’ health, and your health too. The meat's marbling attests to the nutritious grasses. We neither import water nor grass, and all grass and hay is grown on our small sustainable family farms according to our production protocol. Ruminating as they roam freely, until they reach harvest weight — no chemicals, hormones, pesticides, antibiotics are needed.
Hogs, mostly Berkshire, also are free to roam, root, forage, and wallow all of their lives on small, family-owned, sustainable farms where pigs can be pigs (i.e. small social groups, free to roam, fed a non-GMO, soy and corn-free feed of peas, organic wheat, and rice bran as a supplement to their pasture forage). Outside on pasture during most of the year, but with shelter available in winter months with deep, clean straw.
Our animals are processed in a small family-owned abattoir nearby. Every animal, and the butchering process, is assessed and monitored by a permanent USDA inspector. The abattoir is certified by Animal Welfare Approved. Beef is hung to cold-dry age 3 weeks. Pork bacon and sausages contain no artificial preservatives.
We believe animals should be treated humanely and ethically. They should have access to fresh air, clean water, green grass, and sunshine. We know that a healthy environment and gentle handling grow healthy animals – animals without disease and stress.
We bring you Oregon's best meat direct from farms, delivered to your table.

Our cheese products contain only milk, sea salt, cultures, and vegetable rennet, making our cheese vegetarian cheeses. We have four types of aged cheeses:
- “Little Lamb” a sweeter and creamier version of Gouda style cheese.
- “Golden Ewe” a semi-hard creamy cheese made with the late lactation milk of our ewes. The aging process gives it a nice texture accented with subtle butter and nutty flavors.
- “Pepato” is our Golden Ewe aged with 5 types of whole peppercorn.
- “Delight” is a California version of the manchego style cheese.
We have recently added sheep’s milk yogurt, feta, and ricotta cheese.

John’s Natural Products provides
local consumers with high quality grass fed beef raised
on our second-generation family owned and operated ranch
in the Gold Country of Northern California.
Our cattle graze on well tended pastures scattered
with native oak trees and are never confined to crowded and unsanitary
feed yards. They live peaceful and natural lives. We tend them with humane,
low stress methods to insure that their health and nutrition are the
best. Customers praise our beef with comments like “loved the meat” and “the
best I’ve ever had.”
Our beef eat only grass with occasional small amounts
of hay. They are not fed grain, antibiotics, hormones or other growth
stimulants. When you taste our delicious, tender, and juicy USDA inspected
beef, you can be assured that you and your family are receiving the best
nutrition and healthiest food available.
Unfortunately we must limit production in order to
maintain top quality. We finish our beef on natural spring grasses, and
only offer beef one time per year. This allows us to harvest animals
while they are on the gain, maximizing the healthy grass fed benefits.

Luckybird Farm uses organic practices
to sustainably raise flavorful, wholesome pastured poultry
on our small farm. We began raising chickens in 2007 and
are slowly developing our business to provide our local community
with fresh, healthy, delicious chickens (broilers), turkeys and eggs.
We are currently raising three different meat bird
breeds which have been carefully selected for slow growth and foraging
ability, which adds to the nutritional value and flavor of the meat.
Our egg layers are a mix of heritage and production breeds and our limited
number of turkeys are all heritage breeds.
All of our birds are fed certified organic grains,
kept on pasture once feathered and receive daily treats such as heirloom
vegetables straight from our organically managed garden. Although
we have never used herbicides, pesticides, or other chemicals on our
land, we are not a certified organic farm.
Our goals are to live responsibly on the land by
providing habitat for native animals and plants (30% of our farm is dedicated
to wildlife habitat) and by building the soils by careful livestock management
to provide wholesome, healthy foods for ourselves and our local community.

Our mission is to actively participate in the creation of a sustainable agrarian culture that restores, conserves and maintains the productivity of our land. We practice holistic pasture management to help guide us through the decisions about our land that help to sustain the whole community, including us. Holistic management is the understanding of a process where we manage our resources to promote biological diversity, producing a healthy and vibrant landscape for all life. The holistic view looks at the natural world as an interconnected whole—the web of life—rather than a collection of many different parts. If we destroy separate strands of this web, we end up destroying the web itself; if we do that, we destroy ourselves. We strive to produce a healthy landscape where all forms of life are sustainable, generation after generation.

For over 40 years, the Massa Family has been actively involved in the beef industry, beginning in the 70s with a small herd of registered Angus cattle. After searching for a healthier alternative for their own family’s diet, Duane and Wendy Massa saw the need for naturally raised meats, so Massa Natural Meats was born!

Duane and Wendy take a hands-on role with every aspect, from breeding and raising, to customer-service, marketing and shipping. Through selective breeding and careful range management, we are creating a unique group of animals that are a healthy and sustainable alternative to factory farming. We did this for a love of the lifestyle, the outdoors, the animals, and to support our ancestral diet by producing quality natural meats that you can’t find in a store.
Our customers enjoy knowing that the Massa Ranches are active participants in numerous conservation efforts in rural Glenn County geared towards agricultural sustainability. We are actively converting water wells to solar power, providing additional habitat for wildlife.

Orvis Cattle Company is California's oldest registered Hereford herd established in 1918. The ranch has been family owned since 1873. The ranch has been placed in a conservation easement with the California Rangeland Trust. This insures our family will continue the ranching tradition for generations to come on the historic Snow Ranch 11 miles east of Farmington. As a seedstock producer for commercial operations throughout the West, we know beef. Our grass fed beef is raised entirely on green forage under native rangeland, irrigated pasture, and Alpine summer range.
Beef is available in quarter, half, and whole animal for private use. Our great tasting beef is cut and wrapped at the House of Beef in Oakdale. And our price per pound is for the finished cut and wrapped product. Our retail beef goes through a USDA inspected harvest facility with arrangements for fresh, vacuum packed boxed beef delivery to wholesale customers.
All grass fed beef are harvested to order and are available year round as supplies last. Each animal is hand picked for harvest when an ideal finish weight is achieved. It is not uncommon for our beef to grade Choice with marbling and flavor to match. Of course our beef is naturally raised with no use of artificial growth promoters and all grass fed cattle are ranch raised and "never in lifetime" treated with antibiotics.

Rolling Horse Ranch – All grass, and alfalfa that our beef cattle graze on (even during the winter) is produced on our 50-acre ranch using sustainable farming practices. Fallon is a remote farming community so our animals have an abundance of fresh air to breath, lots of water runoff from the Sierra snow melt to drink, and more than enough forage to graze. All our cattle live a natural farm life, free of hormones or antibiotics, are not corn finished, and are raised in a responsible manner. The average yield of our beef is a about 1200 pounds, providing approximately 750 pounds of hanging weight and approximately 550 pounds of boneless retail meat cuts per whole beef.
All cattle are butchered locally and can be dry aged or cut to any specification you desire. A "cut sheet" will be provided to the customer at time of purchase to ensure the animal is processed in the most efficient / desirable manner for each customer. We are willing to do whatever we can to provide our beef to those outside the local area and willing to coordinate shipping for a small fee.
Our price per hanging weight (post 14-day dry-age time) is $4.00 per pound, which includes all brand inspection cutting and wrapping. This equates to approximately $1400 to $1500 per side of beef, depending on the animal's weight. We sell whole, half, and ¼ beef. Occasionally we have individual cuts for sale. Please email us at email@example.com or call 740-396-2862 (Andrew) / 740-396-0595 (Karla) for current availability.

Scott River Ranch grass-fed and finished certified organic (by Oregon Tilth) beef is a healthier and more flavorful choice for you, your family, and the environment. Our beef is born and raised on a family owned ranch near the Russian Peak wilderness area in northern California.

This allows us to minimize the stress on the animal, reduce the environmental cost of transportation, and eliminate any antibiotics or growth stimulants.
Our beef is USDA certified start to finish, and dry aged from 21+ days locally. This allows natural enzymes to tenderize the meat, and give it the delicious flavor which our parents and grandparents once enjoyed. Our beef is available in individual retail cuts. We make free local deliveries and ship Fed-Ex.
We are happy to assist you with your beef purchase, and answer any questions you may have. We want to be your own personal farmer giving you a connection to our land and way of life.

Stemple Creek Ranch is a family
owned and operated cattle ranch in Marin County, California.
We raise our animals on our own pasture land just a few miles
from the Pacific Ocean.
We raise 100% all natural grass-fed Angus beef and lamb.
Our animals eat organic grass and clover and are never subjected to artificial
hormones, growth promotants, or antibiotics. We typically harvest our
animals between May and July of each year, depending on the strength
of the grass and spring rains.
We are environmentally conscious and value biodiversity,
working with mother nature to keep the land abundant and the animals
happy and healthy. This is accomplished by using a variety of techniques,
including protecting creeks with cattle crossings, utilizing electric
fence that can be reconfigured in response to changing conditions, planting
native species on creek banks, and carefully monitoring grazing to prevent
In 2002, the third of four generations of our family

Our beautiful ranch was established in the 1860s
with lush meadows of native grasses including red clover. The irrigation
is from mountain springs or snow runoff feeding ponds that allow for wonderful
gravity irrigation of the fields. I’m sure this ranch could be certified
organic, but I do not believe folks should have to pay more for quality foods.
We have beautiful Jersey cows from a Nevada Dairy owned by an awesome 82-year-old
gentleman named Newell Mills. His kindness has allowed me to expand to around
10 cows which I only buy from him. Nevada dairies are not allowed to use hormones
or steroids for their cows. We only medicate for times necessary for the cows
health, during which time their milk is not used by our customers. The girls
are loved and not giving them the best possible would not be acceptable.
Our cows have free roam of the pastures and come up at milking. When they
have their heads in the feed trough I can call them by name and the come for
their turn at milking.
Our milk is available directly to the consumer as a partnership benefiting
the ranch and customer. We are one mile in the state of California, where it
is legal to purchase raw milk. Those in the state of Nevada are required to
purchase CSAs for their milk.
We have numerous pickup points on specific days for

At Sunbird Farms, we do one thing: pastured-poultry. Think of us as a small heirloom holding, offering heritage, pastured-poultry to our friends and family. Each of our breeds has been carefully selected from the top sources available. We choose only breeds that are well-suited for our climate, ensuring they meet our desired performance and production standards. Make no mistake, these are not your grocery store’s chickens, but they may have been your grandma’s. Our heritage birds demonstrate the perfect combination of historical structure and efficient, flavorful meat and eggs. Many of our selections can be found on Slow Food's Ark of Taste.
Following traditional methods like France's Label Rouge, our egg-laying flock has unlimited daily access to 17 acres of orchard, freely feasting on nuts, greens and grubs. We supplement the natural flora with organic pasture plantings, and offer soy-free, non-gmo, organic layer feed from our local partner, Modesto Milling.
We are currently working with a few artisanal meat varieties from France, including the world-renowned Bresse (or Galouise in America). From Austria, we have the historic favorite of royalty and gourmands alike, the Sulmtaler. We continue to offer these and other premium poultry breeds, bringing centuries of poultry craftsmanship to our local customers.
Our pastured-eggs are available locally for direct sales, and through our CSA partners.
A limited number of whole chickens are available by pre-order throughout the year.
Our chief chicken-raiser, Brice Yocum, is a farmer, professor and licensed attorney, but don't hold that against him. While his family thinks of him as a "busy blacksmith"...a man with (too?) many irons in the fire, he prefers to see himself as a gentleman farmer, in the great tradition of men like Thomas Jefferson and James Herriot...(though James Herriot was actually a vet and not a farmer, but those are just details).

The Honest Bison started as one family’s quest to eat healthier and get fit. When it turned out that sourcing authentic, unprocessed food was harder to do than it sounds, the family decided to do what they could to change that.
Our ranchers practice a method of ranching called Holistic Management, which promotes the growth of a large variety of native grasses that are in turn used to feed the animals. This enhances the flavor of the meat and eliminates the need for fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and other chemically enhanced farming practices. In addition to our pasture management, we also utilize Field Kill as our method of slaughter. This is by far the most humane way to slaughter bison, ensuring an ethical kill that eliminates stress hormones at the time of death, resulting in the best tasting, most tender meat. Due to our expansion to larger pastures in Cadott WI, we will be upgrading our ranches' Field Kill process later in 2018.
We promise The Honest Bison will always provide meat of the highest quality—100% grass-fed and humanely and sustainably raised. If we wouldn’t feed it to our family and friends, we wouldn’t feed it to you.
100% Grass-fed Bison products we offer from our online shop:

Cattle Company sells “Morris Grassfed Beef,” 100-percent
grass-finished beef as split halves. (A split half
will yield approximately 90 pounds of boned steaks, roasts,
and ground beef.)
Our cattle are born and raised in the coastal ranges
of California. They enjoy a diet of fresh grass, forbs, and legumes,
clean water, and, as Julie says, better views than most of us do! We
use neither synthetic hormones or fed antibiotics: our animals grow only
as fast as their genetics and the range will allow.
Their “range,” of course, serves also
as watersheds and habitat for other communities. We manage our animals
so that they enhance the diversity of life on the range, as well as the
quality of the water that falls on the range and flows to the towns.
We manage this web of relationships as an integral whole: damaging the
health of any member of the "whole"
community damages the rest.
Our desire is to produce health with all we do.
Only when this is done are we satisfied that Morris Grassfed Beef is
all it can be—the best there is for all of us.
Our beef is harvested when both the animals and
the grass are ready: usually, June. We time it thus so that the meat
is packed with all the nutrients Jo describes. The beef is processed
in a USDA inspected plant. Then it is dry-aged for 14 days, cut into
individual cuts, wrapped in butcher paper, and frozen.

True Pasture Beef sells free range, grass fed and finished California Beef.
The beef you buy from True Pasture Beef are cattle that my family and I have raised for the cow’s entire life. Over the years, we have learned a few things. Cattle do better when you leave them alone. They like space, they like peace, and they like grass; that is what we give them.
Our cattle live in one of two locations; either Central or Southern California. The ranches total over 5000 acres. We never use hormones and we do not plant or till the ground. The grass the cattle eat is what grows naturally. Cattle and the land take care of themselves if they are managed correctly. Herbicides and fertilizers are never used on our ranch. The cattle fertilize the ground, and the ground feeds the cattle; just like nature intended.
True Pasture Beef is only available in San Diego, CA. People can buy by signing up for the CSA and beef is delivered to their door.

TurnerKelley Farm is a 10-acre Hobby Farm in Stockton, California. We offer free-range eggs, pastured poultry, grass-fed beef, and pork from a few Berkshire hogs that we raise each year.
We started our farm in March 2011 based on the decision that we wanted to eat healthier foods and felt in order to do that we had to take control of how our food was grown. We are new to farming so we have spent these past years learning about the animals we raise and working hard to improve our farm so we can provide the best possible environment for our livestock.
We do not feed our chickens any medicated feeds or antibiotics. Our egg layers free-range from a movable hen house and have access to several acres giving them the opportunity to consume grass, insects and sunshine in addition to layer pellets, grit and scratch to give them the nutrition and energy they need to keep producing quality eggs.
At about three weeks of age our pastured poultry graduate from the brooder and are put in movable bottomless pens in the pasture. The pens are moved daily providing continuous access to fresh grass, insects and sunshine in addition to a quality chick starter/grower feed.
We are raising the Belted Galloway, a heritage breed. Their meat is lower in fat as compared to other traditional meat breeds. No growth hormones or grain is ever given to these fine animals. Our cattle are raised on grass only and have free choice access to kelp which provides additional vitamins and minerals.
It is important to us that our animals have the freedom to roam, be treated humanely and have the opportunity to live a stress free life. Healthy animals equals healthy food, plain and simple.

Yolo Land & Cattle Co. raises 100% grass-fed, grass-finished, all natural, Angus beef cattle. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains west of Yolo County and near Winters CA, we are one hour northeast of San Francisco and 45 minutes west of Sacramento.
Our philosophy has always been "take care of the land and the land will take care of you." In 2005 we placed 7,000 acres in a Conservation Easement so our cattle will never share the ranch with houses, cars or factories; it will always remain a working cattle ranch. In 2007, we received the prestigious "National Environmental Stewardship Award." We are proud of our healthy cattle and the humane care we give all our animals, including our faithful Border Collies and horses.
We never ever give our grass-fed cattle hormones, antibiotics, or feed additives of any kind. They consume only wholesome pasture grass and grass hay cut from our pastures each spring. While we have been raising beef cattle for over 35 years, one of our greatest rewards has been direct marketing our grass-fed beef the past 15 years and hearing how much customers love our beef and appreciate our providing the highest quality beef for their families.
Our beef is harvested at a USDA facility in Santa Rosa, cut and wrapped into individual retail cuts, then vacuum-sealed and flash-frozen to stay fresh in your freezer for 1 year or more. We sell our beef by the quarter side for $8.15/pound, which includes the cut and wrap fee. Each animal is divided into 4 equal quarters, each with the same amount of cuts. Quarter sides (a “Family’s Round Up Savers Package”) typically weigh 115-120 pounds. The final price is calculated on the weight of delivered beef; prices are subject to change. If you do not have freezer space for a quarter, you may purchase individual cuts based on availability. We do not ship our beef; all pickups are by appointment only.
We invite you to visit our website for more information on our grass fed beef, jerky products, weddings and ranch Ag tours.
