Since 1865, the Hearst family has raised cattle on 150,000 acres of rich sustainable native grasslands on California’s Central Coast.

The Hearst Ranches have always treated their animals with great care. and Hearst cattle live a completely natural existence as foragers and grazers. Well-managed grazing results in both the excellent condition of the Hearst working landscape, as well as the remarkable flavor of Hearst Ranch Beef: the authentic taste of the American West.

The historic working landscape at Hearst Ranch will be preserved forever thanks to one of the largest land conservation easements in California history, a joint effort with the California Rangeland Trust, the American Land Conservancy, and the State of California.

Hearst Ranch beef is available seasonally (May-August) in select Whole Foods Markets throughout California (, and all year round at their retail locations San Simeon and Paso Robles.  And now,  Arizona, Nevada, and California can get Hearst Ranch beef delivered right to their door through Larder Meat Company (
