The Hearst Ranches consist of two properties – the 83,000-acre Hearst Ranch in San Simeon and the 73,000-acre Jack Ranch in Cholame. Our signature product is Hearst Ranch Beef, 100% grass-fed and always hormone and antibiotic free, produced from free-ranging and all-natural cattle.

We give cows a lot of room to be cows – and let them lead largely natural lives in these still mostly wild places. Our cows are sure footed, independent (we may not see them for weeks at a time) and fiercely maternal.

There is a code among cowboys that transcends copyrights, technology, and other manifestations of culture that some folks may consider “modern.” The cowboy way is simple. A true cowboy is decent, treats both humans and nature with dignity and respect, and never threatens to use a lawyer where a handshake or a respectful conversation would suffice.

Our cattle live a completely natural existence as foragers and grazers. Grazing enhances a complex and balanced mosaic of native grasslands, which in turn maintains the vigor and distribution of these habitats, ensuring a sustainable food system.
