Our mission on Weyl Farms is to work with nature and learn from it. Nature does not mind being managed, but does not like being pushed and controlled. We work to improve the farm’s soil health, which leads to higher nutritional pasture forage for livestock and poultry. This then leads to higher quality meat and products for our community.
Raised in the open mountains and gentle banks of the Verde River Valley, Moon River cattle are grown using the same practices that have been used for hundreds of years. While much of the cattle industry is turning toward industrialized meat production, we decided to embrace the natural and holistic techniques developed by our forefathers. By integrating sustainable practices that mimic the grazing patterns of bison and other large herd animals, we have been able to raise better cattle in a healthier, safer, and more environmentally conscious way. What we do is as far from industrialized meat as you can get.
Welcome to our farm-to-table family business! We believe that you should know exactly what you're feeding your loved ones and where it comes from. Gone are the days of anonymous beef from unknown sources. We're bringing back the personal touch of knowing your local rancher and butcher. Our ranch is nestled in the breathtaking landscape of Alturas, CA, where our cattle roam on vast green pastures and rolling hills for nearly 10 months after calving, giving them ample time to grow naturally. We then bring them home to Millville, CA, where we carefully select the best quality animals to finish on our own green pastures for a minimum of 90 days with quality grain finish. We also offer grass-finished beef for those who prefer it. We take pride in our commitment to humane handling practices for our herd at every step of the way, from calving to processing. We believe in transparency in beef production, and we want to connect you directly with your food, just like in the old days when you knew your rancher and butcher by name. Join us on this journey to bring back the connection between the farm and your table, and experience the taste and quality of beef that comes from our family to yours.
Our beef is 100% grass fed/ grass finished. We do not supplement our animals with antibiotics or growth hormones. Our animals graze on two ranches. They spend the winter months grazing on 3000 acres in the lush foothills of Jamestown Ca. We move our animals 18 miles to Oakdale ca in the summer months to graze on over 250 acres of certified organic irrigated pasture. All animals are processed when they reach there ideal mature weight ranging from 1300 to 1500 pounds ( live weight). These animals will yield between 400 to 450 pounds of vaccume sealed meat.
Nestled in the heart of San Benito County among the sweeping oak-studded hillsides, Paicines Ranch is habitat for a diversity of wildlife including animals, birds, insects, trees, plants, grasses, springs, rivers, and much more. Our mission is to work with the dynamic natural world at the ranch to regenerate the health of the ecosystem from the soil up while growing delicious, nourishing food for our community.
