LeftCoast Grassfed Beef 

TomKat Ranch is a foundation whose mission is to provide healthy food on working lands in a way that regenerates the planet and inspires others to action. They work to identify holistic agricultural solutions that improve soil health, climate stability, water quality and availability, animal welfare, human health, economic prosperity, and biodiversity. Their 5-year goal is inspiring 1 million acres of California rangeland to regenerative management. This means raising cattle in a way that sequesters carbon, treats animals humanely, improves soil health and water holding capacity, and increases the nutritional density of our food. 

As part of TomKat Ranch’s Fork to Farm Initiative, LeftCoast Grass-fed beef aims to identify best practices and barriers to accelerate the adoption of regenerative agriculture practices. Located in San Mateo County, LeftCoast Grassfed beef is where theory becomes reality with the goal of sharing experience and resources with other ranchers learning to use regenerative practices.  From utilizing every part of the animal to identifying roadblocks in getting this kind of meat to market, Leftcoast Grass-fed works to achieve TomKat’s mission and we are so happy to help support their important work. True grass-fed and finished beef is unique, nutrient-dense and delicious. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! 

Garden Veggies

Over the last year, we’ve put a lot of effort into growing and improving our row crop fruit and vegetable production. We have faced issues ranging from adorable rabbits eating seedlings to wind and rain blowing away our mulch paper. The good news is that we’ve finally hit our stride in our new location on the farm and the crops are starting to roll in! New this week: Romano Beans, 7082 Cucumbers, Summer Squash and more. The tomatoes and chiles will be ready to harvest soon along with some new crops like eggplant and melon we hope to be able to offer as well.
