About Us / Conlan Ranches California and True Grass Farms History: When farmer Guido Frosini began farming at Conlan Ranches – land that has been in his family since 1867 – he established True Grass Farms with the goal of growing the healthiest, highest quality foods possible, while maintaining the highest standards of land stewardship and animal welfare. \nLocated in Valley Ford, California, True Grass Farms raises AWA-certified Black Angus cattle and California Kobe cattle, a Japanese breed renowned for their flavor and tenderness. They also currently hold the distinction of having the largest organic full-blood Wagyu cattle herd in California. The farm’s pastures are also home to AWA-certified American Guinea and Blackworth hogs.\nTrue Grass Farms’ commitment to maintaining healthy and diverse grassland is founded on a process of rotational grazing that involves the stewardship of the pasture as an entire ecosystem. This approach mimics the effect wild grazing animals have as they move across the land, which in turn results in more grass, wildflowers, songbirds and insects. Guido explains that the wide variety of grasses that the animals graze has a great impact on the flavor and quality of their beef and pork products.\nAnother important focus at True Grass Farms is their interaction with their customers. “We believe that education and open communication between consumers and producers is vital to a healthier food system,” explains Guido. “Not only do we offer local and sustainable products at various Bay-area farmers’ markets, but we are also the people selling our products at the booth. We always encourage our customers to ask us questions about our products – and their feedback is always welcome.” \nTrue Grass Farms also offer a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), where customers can subscribe to receive a regular monthly supply of fresh meat. Frequent farm tours and luncheons also provide a way for local customers to get more involved with the day-to-day activities on the farm. For more information visit http://truegrassfarms.com/.
