    Welcome to the Ranch

     

     

    Hey Folks,

    A few weeks back, we mentioned that we were planning to start serving some of our Grass-Fed Burgers at our Farmer's Markets.  Well, I am proud to announce that after a long battle with our massive, red-tape bureaucracy of overbearing, Big-Brother Government, deeply interested in your "Food Safety" (and their salaries) we may now safely serve you a Hamburger at some (not all) of our Markets. 

    Our vision here was to offer a complete Hamburger, truly worthy of our awesome Grass-Fed Ground Beef. Our Burgers come with a whole wheat (organic) Bun, Organic Lettuce, Tomatoes and Onions (all optional, made to order).  Even our Ketchup and Mustard is certified Organic.  You can add some Bacon and Blue Cheese, and top it off with an Organic Soda from Santa Cruz Organics.

    Our Burgers have passed the extremely stringent "Eve" Test for goodness and quality (My Wife).  If you are a fan of our Free-Range Pork, some market will have B.L.T.'s, and a variety of Sausages avaliable.  We will offer our awesome hot food products at the following locations...

    Saturday

    Flower Hill Market  - (from 9 to 12) on the other side of I-5 at the San Diego County Fair exit (Yep! You don't have to eat junk food a the Fair this year)

    Del Mar Market - (from 1 to 4) just off Hwy 1 on the south end of Del Mar

    Carlsbad - (from 1 to 5)

    Sunday

    Hillcrest - (from 9-2)

    La Jolla - (from 8-1) Look for us at the food court

     

    To help kick things off we have included a great coupon for a buck off any one of our Hot Food Items (no limit).  So, now, you can safely eat at the Farmer's Market knowing where your meal is sourced from.

    P.S.  Don't forget that the fourth of July weekend is coming up! If you would like a special order item (like a Tri-tip or Pork Shoulder Picnic Roast) for next weekend, let me know by Monday night and we will take 5% your order.

    Thanks for supporting the Ranch.

     Welcome to the Ranch

     

       Summer is upon us.  This year we have lots of sun, rain and green grass... boy are we pleased with that.  Not only have we been blessed with good rains, a warm growing season and great cattle performance (lots of calves) this year, but we have been blessed with, you, our customer. 

    Grass

       The direct-marketing, slow food production model of Grass Fed Beef is brutal, period. Many, who try, don't make it.  We could not bring you the highest quality products in San Diego without your continued support.  I must say, I was truly blessed this last winter to see many of you standing in the rain at a Farmer's Market to support our Ranch.

       Boy, it was a wet one too! Thanks for hanging in there with us, we truly appreciate it.

       As I have said before, by supporting our Ranch, you are literally "voting with your dollars" and sending a distinct message to the government supported, tax dollar wasting, bought and paid for, industrial farmingcomplex.  A clear message that says "we are tired of you feeding animals junk, with the help of our Tax dollars, and then over-regulating those who actually do it right".

       The manta of this movement is "You are what your animals eat" - and we know it!

       Whether you are a foodie, environmentalist or just love a delicious Grass-Fed steak, we believe you will be as delighted with our products as we are appreciative of you - it's a partnership that's built on the good principles of sustainable food production, and we look forward to many years together.

     

    Thanks again, 

    Douglas Lindamood

    CLA's in Beef

     

    - By Douglas Lindamood

     

    What are CLA's ?

    CLA's, or Conjugated Linoleic Acids, are a relatively recently discovered essential fatty acid that is rumored to have some pretty incredible capabilities.  Dr. Talak Dhiman of Utah State University contends that CLA's may be one of our most marvelous curative discoveries.  Animal studies suggest that CLA's may be responsible for the following beneficial properties...

    • Anti Carcinogen
    • Prevention of Obesity
    • Anti Diabetic
    • Anti-atherosclerosis (Heart Disease) 1

    Of all the animal studies conducted, 100% of them found that additional CLA's in the diet decrease the occurrence of cancer.  Eighty percent of the studies found a decrease in body fat, 75% showed a decrease in the occurrence of adult diabetes. A French Study even concluded that, of 360 women participants, all found that a higher level of CLA's found in their breast tissue directly correlated to a lower occurrence of breast cancer.

    So, where do you find products that contain a high level of CLA's?  Well, a couple of places... first, you can find CLA's commercially available in capsule form in your local health food store. There is a better alternative, you guessed it - Beef.  Naturally occurring CLA's are found to be 600 times more effective than artificially occurring CLA's (pill form).  The best way to accumulate CLA's in the tissue is thought the consumption of Beef and Milk.  But here is the cool part, there are 500% more CLA's in Grass-Fed Beef than in Grain-Fed Beef.

    Now, here is where it gets dicey... in pastured animals, CLA's are very volatile.  It takes a lifetime to accumulate high levels of CLA's in their tissue, but as little as five days to deplete it.  So, if you are buying Grass-Fed Beef with the intention of consuming more CLA's, the animal must have a completely Grass-Fed diet.  In a Utah study, when animals were fed even a small amount of grain, they had less than half of the CLA content found on animals fed an entirely pastured (no hay, silage, chop or grain) diet.

    This is one of the reasons we don't feed any supplements - we want the most benefit from the grass and beef we raise - including all the CLA's we can get!
