July 2021

As we settle into another hot and humid summer at the Ranch, I'd like to ask you to consider including us in your July 4th holiday and weekend barbeque plans. We have some amazing deals this month. We are trying out a new design for our online store and are now offering the option of statewide shipping. The best deal we have right now is on our Ranch Bundle Box subscription, which allows you to receive a monthly delivery of our finest cuts and most popular products. If you use promo code BUNDLEBOX15, you'll save 15% off your first bundle, so go ahead and give it a try.

GLC Processing is up and running, and now accepting orders for booking slots to process quarters, halves, and whole sides of beef. At $4.85/lb, a Custom Order is by far the best value we have-- as long as you've got space in your freezer! Call us at 337-577-9160, email us, or order online to reserve your spot.

Meanwhile at the Ranch, we're keeping ourselves busy by getting pastures ready for grazing and trying to keep up with the rain. We've been doing a lot of fence work, tending to weeds, and taking care of the cattle.

I hope you'll come stop by the Farm Store for a visit. We take pride in not only the quality of our products, but in all the things that make this area special. We're glad you're a part of our family and hope to hear from you soon!


All the best,

Shannon Gonsoulin, DVM

Nutritional Psychiatry
June 9, 2021: This is Your Brain on Food by nutritional psychiatrist and trained chef Uma Naidoo, M.D., discusses the link between mental health and nutrition science. The field of nutritional psychology shows how to improve mood and mental well-being by eating nutrient packed foods and cutting back on nutritionally “empty” foods. Making these adjustments reduces brain inflammation, regulates dopamine and serotonin, and causes other mood-boosting reactions. Over 90% of our body’s serotonin is produced in the gut. In addition to limiting sugar and increasing colorful vegetables, nutritional psychology recommends grass-fed beef for its omega-3.



Grassfed Beef source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids
February 19, 2021: Newly published research in the scientific journal Future Foods discusses the legal recognition of grassfed beef as a source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. Cows with a diet of grains and cereal by-products produce less omega-3 fatty acids and more of the less desirable omega-6 fatty acids when compared to grass fed cattle.
