Located in Northern California’s Shasta Valley, Novy Ranches is owned and operated by the Novy family. First started by Dr. Lowell Novy, a small animal veterinarian, Novy Ranches' pasture-raised 100% grass-fed beef reflects Dr. Novy’s lifelong interest in conservation and ranching.
The cattle are born and raised on the farm, enjoying a wide range of native grasses including bluegrass, creeping foxtail and yerba mansa. The Novys pay careful attention to grass height, moving the herd regularly to protect the grass root system while ensuring the cows always have fresh food to fatten up on. The grasses they grow on-site are never sprayed with pesticides or fertilizers, and all the feed is non-GMO. The Novys don't use added antibiotics, and never use growth hormones.
Novy Ranches is a model of sustainability, and has been recognized by the North Region Water Control Board of California for not just protecting the land and local waters, but also the native Coho and Chinook salmon native to the region. It’s this clean, natural environment that helps make Novy beef so tender and delicious.
