Beef For Sale

Grass Fed Murray Grey/Angus cross Beef, by the 1/4

For July delivery

4 Bar K Ranch in Boonville, CA is offering premium grass-fed beef for sale. This is local grass-fed beef, raised in rural Anderson Valley, in Mendocino County, with no shots or hormones, just excellent, lean, grass finished beef. We raise our beef free range, organically, in a humane, safe, and stress free way. This ensures your beef is the best quality and safest meat, that is raised and sold in the right way. We sell live beef by the 1/4 then ship it to the butcher who then slaughters, ages, cuts, wraps, and freezes it before we deliver your 1/4 to you. Bones and offal are included at no cost.

Please contact me and I will send our information flyer in an email. It should answer most of your questions, but feel free to call me anytime if you're interested.

If interested please contact Dave Kooyers at (707) 895-2325.

Fresh Milk Shares

Hello Anderson Valley. Got Fresh, Golden, Cream-Top, Raw milk?

Well we do!  It is delicious and we are excited to share.  Our flexible cow herd-share allows locals to join as members of our farm and pick up milk from our farm, 2 block out of downtown Boonville.  We will also have eggs, olive oil, yogurt, cheese, and other treats available from the farm.  Please see the flyer below for more information.  Thanks and we hope to hear from you and see you on the farm soon.

News from the Bewildered Pig

Greetings Hungry Loco(l)s!
Our first weekend open after a month off was exciting!  Finding the “rhythm” with all new entrees is always a bit daunting, but it was really fun, and our guests really enjoyed all of the new dishes!
We are excited to be able to offer our Chef’s Tasting Menu without reservations now!  Too many good choices meant that we needed to offer guests all of it!  We offer 5 courses for $99 and two menu supplement options.  Wine Pairings are also optional.  (We will not offer the Chef’s Tasting Menu on Special Event evenings.)

Please note that next Thursday is Valentine’s Day, and we are offering a Pre-Fixe menu that night.  We will NOT be doing a Loco(l) Night entrée, but we WILL offer all local residents 10% off of the Pre-Fixe menu.  You must call for a reservation and let us know about the discount in order to receive it!
