Four generations ago, Manual Jacintho worked as a mason, saved his earnings, and purchased small properties in the Kula area. He started a part-time Black Angus ranch to feed his family, and supplement the family income. The healthy grass growing on the pastures' naturally rich soil, kept a healthy breed of cattle thriving. He raised his animals without the use of hormones, antibiotics, or artificial stimulants. This tradition has been kept in the family for four generations. Today, the tradition of the family farm provides you an improved choice of Certified Organic Beef that is produced in the healthy way beef is intended.
Today, the ranch raises Angus, Brangus, and Wagyu.
