What year was your business founded/established? The Roberts family has been farming this land for more than 150 years. Ritchie and Beverly Roberts began raising cattle and children here in 2003.

What made you decide to open your business? Ritchie and Beverly were both raised in production agriculture. The desire to raise their family in that same atmosphere of land stewardship and work ethic was a deciding factor in continuing their heritage.

What makes your business unique? The entire family is involved in the business. Ritchie and Beverly are true partners in the whole endeavor. The children have dedicated responsibilities and help with every aspect as needed. It is a real, live family farm.

What do you wish your local neighbors (potential customers) knew about your business? Our cattle are 100% Grassfed. At no time do they receive grain, antibiotics, or added hormones.
We have not sprayed chemicals on the strawberries for several years. Questions about our production practices are welcome. We want our customers to be educated about and pleased
with their purchases from us.

What are your next goals for your business (any exciting expansion plans or new product/services)?   To continue to improve the quality of our products to make a better eating experience for our customers – not extra charge.

If someone were to give you $100,000 to invest in your business, how would you spend it?   Pay off debt and expand grazing opportunities for our cattle.

What do you enjoy most about doing business in Orange County? It’s home.
