, 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.

...a local product, a healthy product, one that we can be proud of, that’s what makes me want to get up every day to continue to offer that to our family and friends
— Dr Shannon Gonsoulin, DVM


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.
