Meet our Grazing Partner: Richards Regenerative
As part of our mission to provide the highest quality meats to our community, we are always searching for partners that share our values and high standards. So we are extremely happy to introduce you to our newest Grazing Partner, Richards Regenerative.
Richards Regenerative is a 6,500-acre family-owned and operated regenerative ranch in Yuba County, California, focused on producing the highest quality grassfed and finished beef in the most transparent, sustainable way possible. As the 4th generation in a family of cattle ranchers, siblings Carrie, Noelle and Tom started Richards Regenerative (formerly Richards Grassfed Beef) in 2012. With the vision of bringing the benefits of pastured meats and clean eating to more people, they started by selling whole and half animals to friends and family before quickly branching out to grocery stores, butcher shops, and restaurants across California. In 2016, the ranch officially transitioned to the Savory Institute‘s holistic grazing system, taking a soil-first approach to ranching and furthering their commitment to the regenerative agriculture movement.
They believe in treating their animals and the land with the utmost care and respect, which includes reducing stress on the animal. Here are some of the core tenets of care that Richards Regenerative follows:
- Cattle are grass-fed and grass-finished
- Cattle are born and raised on our family ranches
- Cattle graze on thousands of acres of lush, green, natural grasses
- Cattle are part of a holistic grazing system
- Pastures are never artificially fertilized
- Cattle are never fed hormones or antibiotics
- Cattle are not taken to feedlots to be “finished,” – they fatten on natural grass
Officially certified regenerative through the Savory Institute’s Ecological Outcome Verified program and certified grassfed by the American Grassfed Association, you can trust the Richards name for quality, premium beef that tastes good and is good for you and the planet.
All our current 100% Grassfed Beef is sourced from Richard Regenerative and we know you will love their products as much we do!
