Beef For Sale

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

For January/February 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.

2019 Winter Abundance 

February 9th is the date for the all-day 2019 Winter Abundance Fair at the Fairgrounds in Boonville. Featured are free workshops for beginning and advanced fruit tree grafting techniques, hands-on fruit tree grafting, and seed saving; seed, scion, and plant exchanges; rootstock and plant sales; and featured speaker Robert Kourik talking about how to create healthy soil organisms. The Fair Boosters will have an organic, local-as-possible lunch for sale.  And more! The all-volunteer organizing  team is from Mendocino Permaculture, AV Foodshed, UC Master Gardeners, AV Adult School, and others who would like to help.  If you are willing to assist with publicity, set-up (Friday afternoon/or and Saturday morning), registration, helping with workshops, or clean up, please email Barbara at or call 895-3897.

Farming Family Seeking Space

Longtime organic gardening and farming family, looking for gardening and farming space.  Housing on site (cabin/small house)or the ability to have a tiny home on the land or just farming land are possibilities we are considering.  We have references and enjoy growing healthy food for the region and contributing to the local food supply.
Photos of gardens/references available, Dog Friendly :) (one dog)
Skills include: land crafts, farmer's market experience, farm to table cuisine and more. 
Much Gratitude and Happy New Year :)
