Harris Ranch — It's a name, a destination and a brand known throughout the west for quality beef. Beef that's always tender and great-tasting. For nearly 50 years consumers have looked to the Harris Ranch brand of beef because we are consistently recognized as being the most progressive, innovative and quality conscious beef producer on the West Coast. Something that we pride ourselves on here at Harris Ranch is our functionally-integrated production system. Since Harris Ranch is fully integrated and family owned, we control all aspects of production, starting with cattle sourcing and continuing through our feedlot and processing plant. This functionally-integrated production system allows us to fulfill a promise. A promise of consistently flavorful beef. A promise made possible by our attention to detail and decades of experience producing the west's most popular beef.
And now, the same corn-fed beef that generations of travelers have enjoyed at the Harris Ranch Restaurant in California is available nationwide for foodservice operators seeking a superior center-of-the-plate offering. We offer two unique, beef programs for foodservice including our white tablecloth Black Angus Beef-USDA Certified as well as Harris Ranch Certified Premium Beef — a non-breed specific program. Both programs are corn-fed, minimally processed and contain no artificial ingredients. All cattle feed is tested for pesticide residues and finished beef is tested to ensure it contains no antibiotic residues. Our testing protocols actually exceed those of the USDA. Plus, our beef is hand selected to ensure our customers are provided a product they can be proud to feature on their menu.
But what makes Harris Ranch a preferred brand of beef? All of the cattle used to produce our two foodservice brands are sourced, fed and humanely processed exclusively by Harris Ranch. Few, if any, beef companies other than Harris Ranch can truly claim control over all aspects of production. Today, Harris Ranch has the distinction of being one of the largest, family-owned and functionally integrated beef producers in the west. Our beef comes from cattle that spends approximately 80% of their lives grazing on grass. We finish them for a brief period – typically 120 days – on a nutritionally-balanced diet of corn and other feed grains, plus alfalfa hay, vitamins and minerals.
Feeding grains, like corn, helps produce beef that’s more tender, juicy and flavorful. Many of our customers are surprised to learn that beef produced in feedlots actually has a smaller carbon footprint than meat raised exclusively on grasses.
Harris Feeding Company is known throughout the United States for it’s temperate climate and humane animal handling practices – developed with input from Dr. Temple Grandin – one of the nation’s most noteworthy experts in the filed of humane livestock handling.
