We work closely with nature to ensure that all the animals benefit from these high standards.

We are a conservationist farming operation.
Truly free range
Unlike many other farming systems, Free-range cows and other animals spend much of their lives outdoors where they can graze naturally on a diet of grass and shrubs. The Mozambican bushveld farms are planned and developed into big pastures, where animals can roam in their natural habitat.
What makes Free-range different?
- Free range – By law, cows must be at pasture whenever conditions allow, over 200 days on average
- Fewer pesticides & no artificial fertilisers used on pasture
- Cows fed a grass-rich, GM free diet (minimum 60% grass-based)
- Routine antibiotic usage banned
- No system of farming has higher wildlife benefits
Toro Ranch cows are truly happy cows that lives the natural life that was intended for them.
