A colleague of mine gave me the brochure for Alhambra Valley Beef, a ranch producing grass-fed, free-range, hormone and antibiotic-free beef that is located in Martinez. I am very excited to go visit the ranch and set up a relationship with them. Unlike other wonderful options like Marin Sun Farm, you can pick the cuts of beef you want, and still pay from $4.99 for ground beef to $8.99 for London Broil to $16.99 for Filet Mignon (not that we eat any in that price range).
I am thrilled to support local ranchers, and more humane cattle-raising practices! Contact info: Alhambra Valley Beef, Darryl Pereira, (925) 228-6560. Martinez CA 94553.
