In 2007 our family began using holistic methods on our family farm with the goals of improving the land we live on, the well being of our animals, and reducing fire risk. We started raising lamb, goat, poultry, pork, and beef allowing them to graze year round on natural and healthy feed sources. From this we noticed a few things that came about...
1) The pasture looked well kept, with less weeds and overgrowth.
2) The animals were happier, healthier and self sustaining.
3) Being grass fed made the meat way more flavorful and tasty!
Napa Pasture Protein was started with the idea to share our new found practices, love of farming, offer healthy and humane protein choices to our community, and offer solutions for fire prevention.
In 2017 and 2020 Napa Valley faced some of the most destructive fires in history, wiping out and destroying thousands of homes. We are so thankful that our home and surrounding land stood unharmed due to our fire prevention practices, proper land management, and community efforts.
We hope to continue and share the benefits of these holistic approaches for our family and yours.
Rooted on land that goes back 7 generations, we are farmers at heart. Our daughters are a big part of the daily operations and the reason we choose sustainable farming.

Did you know baby goats are called kids? Spring is our favorite time of year, when the pastures are lush, green, and filled with new born animals.
