California Ranching Families Offer Organic Beef at Local Retailer
WOODLAND, Calif. (December 2, 2011) – SunFed Organic Beef, a certified-organic, grass-fed and grass-finished beef, is now available at Nugget Market stores.
SunFed Organic Beef is comprised of members of three families with deep roots in ranching in Northern California. The families share a commitment to grow the highest quality organic, grass-fed beef possible to sustain the land, their cattle and their ranching businesses for the long term.
“Each of our families has been raising cattle in Northern California for well over 100 years. We are proud of this heritage and the efforts we are undertaking to partner with Nugget Markets to bring our California-raised beef to a local retailer,” said Matt Byrne, one of the founding SunFed Beef ranchers. “These partnerships help us build a local, sustainable production chain that uses the sun’s energy to bring healthy and delicious beef to our Northern California neighbors.”
All SunFed cattle and ranches are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), meaning that all SunFed Organic ranchers have committed to not using pesticides or fertilizers on their farms and that their cattle are never, ever treated with antibiotics or growth enhancing hormones. Each SunFed ranch upholds environmental stewardship, animal care and traditional farming methods that harness the sun’s energy to carefully manage pastures that produce delicious grass-fed and grass-finished beef.
"Nugget Markets is committed to supporting local ranchers like SunFed Organic Beef, and our partnership is another example of our continuing pledge to offer our guests the highest quality products and to help support sustainability and humane treatment of farm animals," said Angel Nolasco, director of meat operations for Nugget Markets. "Our guests can have peace of mind and enjoy SunFed's great tasting organic beef, knowing that these animals are raised with care and without any antibiotics or hormones."
SunFed Organic Beef ranchers will be at Nugget Markets in Roseville and El Dorado Hills on Saturday, December 3 from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. Stop by these locations to meet the SunFed ranchers and sample their delicious beef.
