In conjunction with our vineyards and winery, Oso Libre is a traditional San Luis Obispo County Cattle ranch.
The feedback about the quality of our Pasture Raised Estate Beef has been tremendous and the success of the program further enables our 'whole farm', sustainable family business. Our 65 acres of available pasture allow us to harvest between 5 and 8 steers per year. Oso Libre beef is raised with exacting standards: no Hormones, no Feedlot, no Corn and no Stress. Our steers are grass-fed in open pastures and vineyards enjoying free-range grasses, legumes and water from flowing creeks. The secret to our beef is that it is not just grass-fed. We take extra steps with a 4-way finishing regimen by feeding with beer brewers mash, wheat, oats, barley and molasses for 75 to 90 days. The beef is then aged 18 to 21 days before harvest. Our butcher tells us that the quality of our beef exceeds the USDA Prime requirements and we are extremely proud of it. Beef is available for purchase in the Tasting Room priced per pound, come check it out!
