Touring Tasmania for craft meat

October 5th by Caitlin Postal • Read 1,306 times • 3 min read

Robbins Island cattle being rotated across water As you know from our trips to Japan (Kagoshima in July and Kagawa in August) and Texas, we really like to visit our partner ranchers. We get to know the farmers and their practices, seeing them in action with their animals. That doesn't stop at the border.

A trip to Texas

August 10th by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 1,706 times • 1 min read

When you think of Texas, you probably think of Longhorn cattle and barbecue joints.

Coming soon! Little Shasta: A grass-finished ranch with deep roots in California

January 25th by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 2,313 times • 1 min read

In 1862, Stan Sears’s family settled in mountainous Siskiyou County, California. More than 150 years later, cows still dot the same original property that his family settled. When Stan Sears graduated from Cal Poly in the sixties with a degree in Animal Sciences, he came straight back to the family ranch, and ramped up efforts to expand the farm's acreage and focus on rotational grazing and land preservation. These days, Stan is all about...
