Has anyone in SoCal gotten beef from this ranch? It's a great price, but I'm not sure if it's just great deal, or a "get what you pay for situation." I'm in San Diego, so going all the way up to Temecula to sample is kind of a haul. PS, does anyone in San Diego want to go in on a side? http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/grd/3665066028.html

There was no ad, but I am just starting to sell beef in San Diego. My family and I raise grass fed beef. We have been selling privately to people and have finally developed our label. If you or anyone you know is interested check out my web site. The name is True pasture beef. www.truepasturebeef.com
We deliver directly to your home through community supported agriculture.
As far as I know we are the only ranch that breed the cattle we sell so we own them their entire life. They live on the ranch their whole life. We don't seed our ranch. It is big enough that the grass grows naturally. I am really proud of our heard. If you do buy beef a few important questions are:
- How long have you had the animal?
- How many head do you raise a year?
- How many acres do you have?
- What breed is the animal?
- Do you till/plant the ground?
- Do you feed hay or pellets?
The answers should be 1. Since birth. 2 and 3.This number should be much smaller than the acres. We raise 150 on 5000 acres. 4. should be a beef bread. Not Holstein. 5. Should be no. This is not the worst but it is better that the meat is from wild grasses and not all grain based grass. 6. No or rarely. Feeding hay is unavoidable sometimes in winter or in dry years.
Hope this helps and good luck.
