Niman Ranch
Compassionate family farmers raising animals with respect for the land. Never given hormones or antibiotics, raised humanely.

Nevada County Free Range Beef
Today, the Nevada County Free Range Beef herd stands at over 120 Shorthorn, Red Angus, and White Park mother cows. Profound knowledge of genetics, feed conditions, and gentle handling techniques ensure that only the best, most nutritious beef reaches your table. No growth hormones or antibiotics have ever been or will ever be used, and all pasture land is naturally fertilized and managed, without pre-emergents, pesticides, or petrochemicals.

Rancho Llano Seco
Llano Seco pigs are a cross of Duroc, Yorkshire and Landrace breeds. Their hogs are fed GMO-free vegetarian grains and legumes, 90% of which are grown on their dry-land fields within a few miles of the barns. Pigs are confinement-free, raised in deep-bedded hoop barns with continual access to large open air pastures with plenty of sunshine and a great view of the California Buttes. The pigs are a “zero-waste” community, as all bedding is composted and applied to Rancho pastures. Llano Seco animals are humanely treated with best practices as certified by Global Animal Partnership. Their meat has no antibiotics or growth hormones. Llano Seco, a 6th-generation family-run historic California Rancho takes pride in their holistic approach.

Back to Basics Farm
Their pasture-raised Bovan chickens and Perkins ducks wander the fields in the morning, then for the rest of the day hang out in their barn, which they wander in and out of as the spirit moves them.

Mary’s Chicken – Pitman Family Farms
Free range, pasture raised, organically fed, air chilled chicken.

Diestel Family Turkey Ranch
Certified Organic Turkey is sustainably farmed, range grown, fed only certified organic corn and soy, processed and delivered directly from us to you.

Beeler’s Pork
Beeler pigs are raised without any antibiotics or growth promotants and are never fed animal by-products. Their diets consist of all vegetarian ingredients: corn, soybean meal, vitamins, and minerals.
