Olive-Oil Beefalo Tomahawk Steak – Dinner doesn’t get any better than this!
Beefalo on our farm enjoying the weather in the wonderful & beautiful Temecula Valley!

A HUGE THANK YOU! To Cougar Vineyards and Winery in Temecula, CA for supporting our local “olive oil” beef project.

It was so much fun to see the owner Rick personally operating the olive oil press. The olives are picked fresh, on-site and loaded into the hopper. After a generous amount have made their way through the machine the magic begins. A thin stream of raw, golden olive oil pours out into a small container.

…But, out the other side, a mass of purple paste is pushed out into a waste bin. Although the leftovers smell so incredibly delicious, like the freshest olive oil, grassy with a hint of butter…the tannins make those raw lees too bitter to be palatable (yes, I tried it!) The cattle won’t eat it, not without help…

Inspired by the Japanese ethic of mottainai, “to waste nothing” Masaki Ishii オリーブ牛情報サイト developed a process drying and roasting the olive oil lees into a malty, irresistible treat for his small herd of Wagyu cattle. In this process, with such time and care, a waste product becomes the secret ingredient to the worlds most luxurious & expensive beef.

The roasted olive oil lees are fed to our beefalo as part of a 75 day specialized finishing diet which also includes some corn-soaked olive oil, milk, molasses & whiskey mash.
