The Right Place
We think the coastal mountains west of Paso Robles are a great spot to raise prime beef naturally. One old cowboy calls our place the "honey hole." Ample annual rainfall, totalling over 30 inches per year on average, is the result of our proximity to the ocean (just 12 miles to the southwest) and our mountain valley location. Our rich, rolling hills are prime oak woodland, covered with thick grasses and forbs, like wild rye, clover, vetch and filaree. This natural, high-energy feed results in fat, well muscled cattle without resorting to grain-based feeds and supplements that are the staple of commercial feedlots. Of course we never use hormone supplements or antibiotics, which are common in grocery store beef.
