Hospitality tour at Circle Ranch

Hospitality Tour at Circle Ranch Recap with Molly Dennis Episode Out Now!

On May 16th, the California Cattle Council bused a group of chefs, butchers, and other hospitality professionals to Circle Ranch in Ione. Circle Ranch was ideal because of its proximity to Sacramento, relative beauty and its wonderful owners in Tim and Jill Curran.

We’ve created a program where we bring hospitality professionals for ranch and dairy visits a few times a year with the intention of creating a better connection between producers and those that serve as the ambassadors of ranch and dairy products to the consumers.

We were given a walking tour of the ranch and were lucky to hear from Tim and Jill Curran about many aspects of their operations and we also heard from Haydn Clement a technician from the Chico State Meat Lab.

For those unable to attend we’re providing a recap of the trip with the help of Molly Dennis who attended the tour and who is an industry veteran. To gauge the efficacy of the educational components of the trip we end the interview with an intensive multiple choice test.
