About Us / T.O. Cattle Company History: The T.O. Cattle Company sells “Morris Grassfed Beef,” 100-percent grass-finished beef as split halves. (A split half will yield approximately 90 pounds of boned steaks, roasts, and ground beef.)
Our cattle are born and raised in the coastal ranges of California. They enjoy a diet of fresh grass, forbs, and legumes, clean water, and, as Julie says, better views than most of us do! We use neither synthetic hormones or fed antibiotics: our animals grow only as fast as their genetics and the range will allow.
Their “range,” of course, serves also as watersheds and habitat for other communities. We manage our animals so that they enhance the diversity of life on the range, as well as the quality of the water that falls on the range and flows to the towns. We manage this web of relationships as an integral whole: damaging the health of any member of the "whole" community damages the rest.
Our desire is to produce health with all we do. Only when this is done are we satisfied that Morris Grassfed Beef is all it can be—the best there is for all of us.
Our beef is harvested when both the animals and the grass are ready: usually, June. We time it thus so that the meat is packed with all the nutrients Jo describes. The beef is processed in a USDA inspected plant. Then it is dry-aged for 14 days, cut into individual cuts, wrapped in butcher paper, and frozen.
