In 1994, Cynthia Beretta decided to take the guilt right out of cattle ranching. She decided to raise animals in a humane way so people can feel good about the meat they are eating. Turns out it wasn’t such a crazy plan!
Now, her company, Beretta Farms, is a multi-million dollar cruelty-free beef business, selling organic and naturally raised beef to grocery retailers across the country.
As her ranching business grew, so did her family. Her three kids, Thomas, and twins, Lieschen and Marcus grew up on the ranch, working as a family is party of ranching’ life and her kids have been part of it from the start.
Now Beretta farms spans across countries and continents. And Cynthia and her family work around the clock to keep beretta farms up the standards they had established all those 22 years ago.
In every episode of Real Ranchin’, Cynthia Beretta takes us on a real ranchin’ kinda’ day. We watch as she joins forces with her ranchin’ partners. Together they are all committed to raising cattle at a standard that Beretta farms has set twenty years ago.
Whether she’s helping out with cattle branding one of her own herds at the Toews family ranch in Saskatchewan, or learning how to protect a flock from predators at a heritage turkey farm in Peru. Whether she is headed
to Montana to resolve a sheep sheering crisis or bottle feeding a motherless baby Elk in Alberta, come up close and personal with real life ranching and uniquely rugged individuals who live and work on the range.
Each episode highlights a different ranch, and family in a unique location with specific issues and animals. We meet these colorful characters and have an insider’s tour of their land and their particular breed of animal. Cynthia, often accompanied by one of her ranchin’ kids, arrives by truck, tractor, small plane or horseback to check up on- or in with- that ranch’s particular herd.
But real Ranchin’ isn’t just about work.
In each episode we will share in the culinary adventures that are part of Cynthia’s life. Learn about everything from picking the right cut of meat to creating a decadent range supper for twenty.
This is a real ranching’ story with a real ranching’ family and the joy, the struggles and the celebration of life on the range.
