Their pastured chicken is also featured on the menu at Thomas Hill Organics, a local restaurant specializing in fresh, organically grown food. BeeWench Farm uses no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides on its vegetables. Chicken is raised on pasture, in moveable pens, on non-GMO feed with no added hormones or antibiotics. The pasture chickens and goats form a harmonious relationship in the lush grass. The goats nibble away at nutritious grasses and the pasture pens follow behind them, spreading their fertilizer and eating bugs. Their egg chickens are free range and spend their days scratching in the soil and eating bugs out of the grass. Bright yellow yolks are the norm for BeeWench Farm eggs!.

  • Hearst Ranch - 100% GRASS-FED GRASS FINISHED Beef
    Hearst Castle Visitor Center, 750 Hearst Castle Rd, San Simeon, CA 93452. Phone: 805-927-4611. Open: see their page. Flash-frozen Hearst Ranch grass-fed steaks, ground beef, and assorted cuts. earst Ranch Beef cattle are never procured from other ranches – each and every one is born and spends its life entirely in our care, raised to a finished weight of approximately 1,200 lbs. entirely on grass. These ranches are spacious and mostly wild places. We give cows room to be cows – and let them lead largely natural lives. We carefully manage grazing – moving cattle throughout the ranches on a seasonal basis to ensure they have ample nutrition while not depleting native vegetation. Like many other beef cattle producers, we have demonstrated that well-managed grazing enhances the biotic condition of our native grasslands, oak woodlands, and coastal prairies. Hearst Ranch got its start in 1865. Founded by George Hearst, in San Simeon, California.  (ADDED: September 30, 2023, JBS)
