About Us / Sierra Lands Beef History: Since 1996, the Sierra Foothill Conservancy has been managing thousands of acres of land in California’s Mariposa, Madera and Fresno counties in order to protect and preserve foothill ecosystems and open space. Like many conservation land managers and researchers, Sierra Foothill Conservancy has found that anywhere non-native grasses thrive, grazing is essential for preserving vernal pools, native wildflowers, small vertebrates such as kangaroo rats and lizards, and invertebrates such as bugs and butterflies. In order to take advantage of these benefits, for many years, the Conservancy invited ranchers to graze cattle on its preserves as an important part of its stewardship of the land it owns and manages.\n\nIn 2010, the Conservancy established its own grassfed beef operation, Sierra Lands Beef, managed by Logan Page and Billy Freeman. The two man operation utilizes rotational grazing and efficient water management to encourage the growth of natural grasses and health of the lands they manage. Animal Welfare Approved certification confirms that they are raising cattle with high-welfare and sustainable practices for the benefit of their animals, the earth and their customers. Sierra Lands’ grassfed and grass-finished beef is available in the Fresno, Prather, North Fork, Oakhurst, and Mariposa communities direct from the farm, and orders can be placed through the website.
