Hamilton Brothers Ranch
The Hamilton Brothers' ancestors started raising lamb in the Montezuma Hills in the 1800's. Now surrounded by sustainable wind-power, the ranch's lambs graze on some of the last remaining native grasslands in the Sacramento Valley and on dry-farmed, unharvested barley fields, followed by wheat, triticale, safflower, and alfalfa crops after they have been harvested. Grazing practices have been measured to increase biodiversity on the land.
All of Hamilton Brothers Ranch lambs are raised under ethically sound animal husbandry practices. This includes minimum stress environments and the absence of growth hormones or antibiotics. Predators are managed by the use of solar powered electric fences and livestock guardian dogs. It is their mission to protect the native species that inhabit the Montezuma Hills.
