Sustainable Ranching
Saddle up for a ride across some land that’s been home to cattle ranching since the California Gold Rush. Operated by the Stone family, the ranch is a model of agriculture that benefits the environment.

There is a consumer focus on animal welfare and sustainability today. The Stones have won national awards for environmental improvements on their ranch. They’ve also been recognized for their best practices in raising their grass fed beef.

 
Cattle - Fun Fact:
Before the California Gold Rush, ranchers in the Golden State sold their cattle primarily for hides and tallow. As prospectors arrived, prices for beef and other agricultural products jumped dramatically. Steers which cost just four dollars a head in 1847 cost nearly 20 times that much in San Francisco by 1848.
