Augustus Ranch Meat Company has been part of the Farmhouse Delivery family for awhile now. We’re excited to collaborate with these folks who embody all the values that we hold so dear. We thought it was time to give our customers a look into the Augustus Ranch family and traditions…
Augustus Ranch had its beginnings with August Kaspar, who purchased 100 acres in Shiner back in 1890. Over a century later, Dennis & Cordelia Kaspar and their children oversee this (now 5,000 acre) ranch based in Yoakum, Texas, is steeped in family tradition of innovative agricultural practices and of raising animals in natural conditions. Five generations of Kaspars have made ranching their life’s work, which shows from the care of their animals to the commitment to the quality of the products that bear their name.
Their cattle are kept to the healthiest diet including grass (naturally rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins), fresh forage, and a proprietary finishing feed which includes nutrient-dense plant materials (no corn or soy), resulting in higher levels of beta-carotene and antioxidants than conventional grain-fed beef. They also focus on breeds that are suited to the Texas heat, which minimizes stress on the animals for a more humane life and better tasting meat. In addition to several breeds of cattle and pigs, Augustus Ranch also raises goats. This is not only beneficial for the flavorful goat meat, but because goats have amazing land management properties since they eat a large variety of plant life.
Augustus Ranch is the source for grass-fed meats for many of the finest restaurants and meat markets in Texas. Their meat is better tasting, healthier and a product of environmentally responsible ranching. According to Kent Schoberle, Chief Meat Officer at Augustus Ranch Meat Company, “Quality feed and outdoor living creates a great end result and requires no antibiotics or added hormones, ever. It takes longer to raise and finish our animals this way, but that’s just a normal part of creating better flavor.”
