“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’m now a paralegal in town and work on the ranch during weekends. I wanted to experience “normal life” before I return to the ranch. But I still live on the ranch, actually in a barn.
I’m working on raising pastured poultry and heritage pork in addition to the grass-fed beef the ranch already produces. My goal is to raise enough pastured meat to halfway retired from my office job. I’ll be sharing my adventures in pastured meat, so stayed tuned.
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.
