Brandt Beef maintains a “farm-to-fork” philosophy which involves raising its animals humanely and naturally without hormones or the use of antibiotics. It also provides education and recipes to chefs and consumers to promote the use of the entire animal. This commitment to sustainability also includes being responsible stewards of the land.
Burrowing Owls: Brandt Beef currently has 15 "owl boxes" on site which are 80 percent occupied by the Imperial County's burrowing owls. The owl boxes are placed four feet underground. The owls, which are about 10 inches in length, occupy these boxes and are natural predators of field mice, insects and other pests. The owls protect Brandt's fields from pests, while the Brandt family provides a home to these owls which are on California's watch list of endangered species.
