Foodie: Eric Bleau
Blue Oaks Ranch is owned and operated by the Bleau Family, who pride themselves on their commitment to the health and happiness of all their animals. They operate on the belief that “you can’t get healthy meat from sick animals,” and maintain a beautiful herd of Lowline Cattle, Katahdin Sheep, Nubian Dairy Goats, and Friesian Dairy Sheep, with a flock of gorgeous chickens, a couple of heritage breed pigs, and some dogs and cats to keep them company. The ranch is all-organic; nothing is wasted, and the difference can be seen in the happy herds as well as tasted in the meats and cheeses they produce. The Bleaus sell top-quality breeding stock and advocate for small acreage farmers who wish to raise their own food. Located in Mustang Valley, a slice of heaven just off McCourtney Road, where it feels like the middle of nowhere but is really just a short drive to town. Blue Oaks Ranch also hosts an AirBnB where visitors come and experience life on a working ranch.
