Beef and Blooms – Hawaii's First Certified Organic Ranch

Continuing with its Taste Education Series, Slow Food Maui presents its fifth session: “Where’s the beef?” Here’s an opportunity to learn all there is to know about organic, grass-fed beef on Maui with William Jacintho of Beef and Blooms, Hawaiʻi’s first certified organic ranch. The Jacintho family will share their knowledge of raising cattle and how best to prepare local, grass-fed beef products.

Four generations ago, Manual Jacintho worked as a mason, saved his earnings, and purchased small properties in the Kula area. He started a part-time Black Angus ranch to feed his family, and supplement the family income. The healthy grass growing on the pastures’ naturally rich soil, kept a healthy breed of cattle thriving. He raised his animals without the use of hormones, antibiotics, or artificial stimulants. This tradition has been kept in the family for four generations. Today, the tradition of the family farm provides island residents an choice of Certified Organic Beef that is produced in the healthy way beef is intended. Today, the ranch raises Angus, Brangus, and Wagyu.
