As of October 2021, we will no longer be selling our meats to the public. We have a limited mailing list for fruit, eggs and some meats for local pickup only and whole animal shares. Please contact us if you'd like to be added to this list.
Casa Rosa Farms is an 110 acre organic family farm based in the Capay Valley. We raise Limousin-influenced cattle, also known as Lim-Flex. We prefer Lim-Flex beef for our grass fed program because of their long rib section, calm disposition and double muscling. We like the easy calving, great predator instinct and docility of our Limousin influenced herd. We also raise California Red Sheep, rotationally grazed through orchards and fields. We no longer raise pastured pork. Our poultry eat many organic fruits and vegetables, from our own farm and those of neighboring organic farms. We pledge to never administer antibiotics, hormone implants, or feed any genetically modified grains to our market animals (those slaughtered for meat).
Our family has been farming in the Central Valley since emigrating from the Azores in the 1960's, buying their own farmland in 1974. The third generation (Casa Rosa Farms) wanted to do something different, so we planted an olive orchard and became certified organic by CCOF in 2009. While we no longer own our original family farm, we are still farming hay along with our parents on their farm and moved to the Capay Valley in 2012. Since then we have focused on our pasture based meats production. We practice holistic grazing management, inter-cropping within orchards, and have invested in solar power generation on our farm. Our cold room and freezers are about 70% solar powered. Our olive and fruit orchards are utilized by wildlife for cover and food. Fruits of the orchards: extra virgin olive oil, apricots, plums, heirloom Bartlett pears, figs, pomegranates, oranges, Fuyu persimmons, Asian pears, quince, Marcona almonds and pecans.
