Hanford, Calif. and Selma, Calif. – April 9, 2019 – Harris Farms, Inc. (“Harris Farms”) Owner John Harris and Central Valley Meat Company, Inc. President and CEO Brian Coelho announced today that Central Valley Meat Holding Company will acquire Harris Ranch Beef Holding Company (“Harris Ranch Beef”), including its wholly owned subsidiaries, Harris Feeding Company and Harris Ranch Beef Company.

Harris Ranch Beef Company has a personal stake in the quality of the environment. That’s why we proudly share the results of a study published recently in the journal Agricultural Systems entitled Environmental Footprints of Beef Cattle Production in the United States.
The report documents the most comprehensive beef cattle lifecycle assessment ever completed. With research conducted by the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and The Beef Checkoff, the assessment was designed to scientifically quantify the sustainability of U.S. beef production. The results show widely accepted measures related to beef cattle’s impact in the U.S. are often overestimated.
Napa and Sonoma Counties are rebuilding lives, homes and businesses after wild fires tore through their communities the week of October 8th. This part of California is renowned for the wine and foods they produce, and they are near and dear to our hearts at Harris Ranch.
For the first time, chefs and restaurants on the West Coast can offer locally produced Certified Angus Beef®. The brand is now proudly offered by Harris Ranch, a family-owned company with a 50-year history of farming and ranching in California’s fertile Central Valley. Attendees of the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo in Los Angeles will be able to taste Certified Angus Beef from Harris Ranch at booth 1907 from August 27-29 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
