, Our Land, Our Beef
How it all started
The Gonsoulin Family has been raising cattle in south central Louisiana since 1770. Jean Francios de Beaumelle Gonsoulin, a land surveyor from France, registered the F2 brand in St Martin Parish, Louisiana of that same year. Along with raising cattle, our family includes a long list of butchers and meat market operators. Gonsoulin Land and Cattle Company, LLC initially began its grass-fed business in 2006. It is our intent to produce quality grass-fed beef using no antibiotics or growth hormones. We produce beef as Mother Nature has intended and conserve our natural resources in the process.
We pay attention to the details. We work our cattle on horseback which results in a low stress, low-pressure environment. It may take us a little more time to do things but the cattle prefer the decreased noise levels and gentle handling.
Our ranch is certified by the American Grassfed Association, producer #0224. This organization conducts an on-site inspection of the ranch and allow the use of its labels on the products to be sold. This assures the consumer that the meat has met the grass-fed guidelines and has in place an inspection process from a third party.
