“With good character, good cattle, and good work we will supply Chico with quality beef” Paul Lucas (My great, great, great grandfather)
Welcome to the rants and ramblings of a 6th generation, commercial, cattle rancher who loves to cook. I earned my B.S. degree from CSU Chico in agriculture. I’ve worked in production ag, fulltime, my entire life, until 2009, when I went and then dropped out of law school. I worked as a legal assistant in town for the past three years. I wanted to experience “normal life” before I returned to the ranch. I live on the Ranch, in a converted barn, with my manx cat, Jack, my border collie Hoot and my teacup pig Priscilla aka Silly.
I just quit my full-time job to work on the Ranch. I plan on expanding our grass-fed beef operation as well as starting a heritage pork operation. I also plan on raising quail for eggs soon, because they are amazing. I love ranch life!
I am very passionate about agriculture and want to share my life and experiences with those who are curious about agriculture. Feel free to ask me anything about ag and I will do my best to answer honestly, without scaring the crap out of you or bashing farmers and ranchers that produce differently from myself. This blog is about my very unique life. It will mainly focus on the ranch and my recipes but don’t be surprised if some random things pop up. Be warned, I am anything but normal. If there is anything you want to know about my ranch or me, please e-mail me at MegRBrown@gmail.com. Thanks for checking out my blog!
Don’t poke me with a stick, please.
