Las Cumbres Ranch cattle are raised on biodiverse rangeland and irrigated pastures. Our pastures are made up of native trees, brush and plants, including legumes, forbs, brassicas and grasses which give the cattle access to a phytonutrient and micronutrient rich diet. This variety of nutrients are essential for the health and wellbeing of the animals. These pastures with their biologically healthy soils and plant diversity influence the final product. The terroir on which the cattle is grazed imparts unique characteristics, taste and flavor.
The natural instinctive behavior of cattle is to roam and graze. We shepherd our cattle from pasture to pasture, at their natural pace which keeps our animals at ease. Minimizing stress in our cattle allows us to provide the healthier and better tasting beef. Las Cumbres Ranch beef is antioxidant rich, nutrient dense and is high in omega 3s. Our cattle are raised without the use of antibiotics, steroids, and added growth hormones.
Our wildflower honey is produced in partnership with Santa Barbara Bee Rescue who save bees that would otherwise be exterminated. The abundant biodiversity on the land gives the honey a unique delicious wildflower and sage flavor Bees are an integral part of the Las Cumbres Ranch ecosystem.
Our chickens are pasture raised and moved around from pasture to pasture in their mobile "Egg Roll" they scratch and forage bugs, seeds, and plants as they fertilize the ground. Our eggs are hand collected and washed with natural enzymes to ensure toxin free, nutrient dense, flavorful eggs. Chickens are an essential part of the Las Cumbres Ranch ecosystem.
