One thing I can say about Weezy is she is consistent. Consistently hungry, consistently looking for snacks, and consistently in the way. She lurked under the apple tree the entire time the girls were trying to pick apples. She stood still as could be hoping we didn’t see her, but her ears perked every time an apple smacked the ground. At least she consistently cleans up after herself. Not one scrap is ever left on the ground.
We are forever drawn to strong saguaros and towering sandstone mesas. We love exploring the southwest and experiencing its magic. We’re finally back from our latest adventure at Lake Powell, complete with zero cell service, but ripe with adventure and memories. ❤️
I love our colorful eggs ❤️
Eggs are currently available for order or pick up at . Grab a dozen today!
Our bleeding heart animal lover.
The cat brought this little guy in this morning. Reina watched all the hummingbird rescue videos she could find and sat with the little dude all morning.
Well she saved him, the hummer just flew off to a nearby oak tree. ❤️
Come rain, snow, or tropical storm, we have to feed and care for the critters. Morgan is always down to go. Always. Doesn’t matter the weather, she’s suiting up before I tell her it’s feeding time. Grateful for my little partner today who helped me while there was a calm in the storm.
The weather always dances around Hot Springs Mountain making the most beautiful and bizarre scenes sometimes.
My chore date.
I’ll just pretend he’s researching fancy turkeys and not sending work messages.
Do you want to be certain of what is going into your food? Buying ranch direct cuts out the middle man, cuts out the fancy advertising and labels, and brings you closer to your food source.
These turkeys were raised for Morgan’s 4H project. We know everything about how they were raised, what they were fed, and their living conditions. We even harvest them ourselves to ensure a humane and dignified harvest. Their life and death is not something we take lightly.
Do you want to know more about humanely raised meats and how you can purchase? Sign up for our monthly mailing list on our website.
🍀 Morgan’s 4H turkeys are ready! 🍀 She worked really hard raising 3 of the most gorgeous broad breasted turkeys I’ve ever seen. (I’m seriously impressed) We decided not to enter them in the fair since we knew we would be out of town in Sacramento. If you’re interested in a fresh turkey, or one you can store until Thanksgiving, stop by our website to order or send me a message. The funds are going to Morgan to cover the cost of her project. If she has any money left, she wants to buy new cowboy boots. (Or a new Kawasaki mule, dream big girl!)
And on a special side note, today is her birthday. Happy Birthday Morgs.
Beyond honored to accept this award today. The Diamond B is the newest inductee into California’s Agricultural Heritage Club!
The Heritage Club honors pioneer farms and ranches in the state that have been in operation for at one hundred or more years. This year marks the ranches 101 year.
Built on the backs of Sam and Mary Taylor, Elmo’s great great grandparents, the ranch is still operating today. Lord willing, our girls will be invited back in 24 years to celebrate the ranches 125 year award.
Most ranches in this United States are family owned and operated, and more than half of them will be handed down to the next generation. We’re proud to be another rung in the Taylor families ranching legacy.
Ranching is a lot of work and takes a lot of know how (and coors light) Four generations still call the ranch home. We are grateful every single day to have older generations still around to tell us what works and what we’re doing wrong. We are so blessed.
Here’s to another 100 years!!
Dirty feet, summer sun, cattle pastures ❤️
Liberty is modeling her typical summer outfit. Soaking wet, lots of dirt, and a strip of something dead on her side. Her accessory of choice is the dead squirrel she’s been carrying around. So fetch!
It’s the most perfect day. Weezy and I are soaking up the extra sunshine, watching the grass dance in the breeze. The winter was too long and too wet for me, my bones needed summer.
It’s our birthday!
Sam Taylor put down his signature 101 years ago this month setting the stage for a ranching operation still going strong today.
There’s a lot of experience, wisdom, and coors light in these hills, all of which made the ranch in to what it is today. We’re so fortunate to still have 4 generations on the ranch, proving we know what we’re doing to raise high quality beef.
Help us celebrate! Use coupon code BIRTHDAY for 10%off apparel in our ranch store. www.DiamondB.org

Did you know male calves are called bulls? We castrate bull calves when they’re little, and they become steers. Most beef comes from steers, instead of bulls, since it has less testosterone which can change the flavor of the meat. Males with less testosterone are also easier to manage.
We couldn’t get this little dude gathered with the rest of the herd a few weeks ago when we worked the calves. But we got him today!
It’s funny because it’s true.
Bottom line, ranch raised products like beef, eggs, and milk are good for you.
Here comes the rainy season!
This year we welcome the New Year with high hopes for good grass, fat steers, and continuing family traditions.
Here’s your New Years Resolution

A COWBOY'S CHRISTMAS PRAYER
By S. Omar Barker
I ain't much good at prayin', and You may not know me, Lord-
I ain't much seen in churches where they preach Thy Holy Word,
But you may have observed me out here on the lonely plains,
A-lookin' after cattle, feelin' thankful when it rains,
Admirin' Thy great handiwork, the miracle of grass,
Aware of Thy kind spirit in the way it comes to pass
That hired men on horseback and the livestock we tend
Can look up at the stars at night and know we've got a friend.
So here's ol' Christmas comin' on, remindin' us again
Of Him whose coming brought good will into the hearts of men.
A cowboy ain't no preacher, Lord, but if You'll hear my prayer,
I'll ask as good as we have got for all men everywhere.
Don't let no hearts be bitter, Lord.
Don't let no child be cold.
Make easy beds for them that's sick and them that's weak and old.
Let kindness bless the trail we ride, no matter what we're after,
And sorter keep us on Your side, in tears as well as laughter.
I've seen ol' cows a-starvin, and it ain't no happy sight:
Please don't leave no one hungry, Lord, on thy good Christmas night-
No man, no child, no woman, and no critter on four feet-
I'll aim to do my best to help You find 'em chuck to eat.
I'm just a sinful cowpoke, Lord-ain't got no business prayin'-
But still I hope You'll ketch a word or two of what I'm sayin':
We speak of Merry Christmas, Lord-I reckon you'll agree
There ain't no Merry Christmas for nobody that ain't free.
So one thing more I'll ask You, Lord: Just help us what you can
To save some seeds of freedom for the future sons of man.
Sorting, tagging, branding, and weighing.
Morgan said this is the best Christmas she’s ever had. 🤣 Whoa there cowgirl! If I knew that I would have done so much shopping!
It’s baking season! We have enough eggs to keep your mixer running for days.

Annnddd we’re back from the trip that will be known as the Best Worst Thanksgiving Ever!!
We learned a lot about history, went on a super rad cavern tour, watched the flu take out everyone in its path, but we avoided food poisoning by serving trip tip instead of turkey on thanksgiving. 🤣 Glad we’re home!!
If you’re still working on your Christmas shopping lists, we have lots of hoodies and shirts in stock in the ranch store. Head over for some great deals.
And that’s a turkey season!
Our 2022 season is now in the books. This was a really great group of birds we picked up from back in March. We raised and loved them from poult to harvest.
We have a really great group of customers who absolutely love showcasing these birds as their thanksgiving centerpiece and we love being a part of their holiday traditions.
Just Liberty, doing Libby things….
Literally the biggest hole she’s dug thus far. I’m pretty sure she was trying to connect to holes together in her tunnel. 🤦🏼♀️
Eggs are ready to roll for this weekend! We even have a couple dozen turkey eggs in there!
Chicken eggs $5 a dozen
Turkey eggs $15 a dozen

Be here by thanksgiving and you can show off your bird to your family and friends! Check it out below!
Scroll through to see Weezy and her remarkable ability to ruin a photo. Coincidentally I have a child with the same superpower.
It's almost time!!
We are sold out of turkeys!
If you did snag one of gorgeous birds, please check your email. Last call to send us your weights and specifications.
Got the new little ladies tag ready. So what does it mean?
23 is the birth year (I know we’re jumping the gun, but she’s the first calf of the next calving season which starts in January. She is significantly younger than the other 22 calves)
01 is the birth order for the herd.
1701 is Weezys number.
And all the heifers get a name. We can’t decide if she should be Trick or Treat, so she’s both! 🍬 Sidenote- Reina wanted to name her spider if she was black. 🕷
It’s a girl!! Weezy brought us a little Treat for Halloween!
Meet our first calf of the season, Treat.
Celebrating San Diego’s Farmer of the Year. Every year one farmer who goes above and beyond to further our industry is selected and celebrated by the San Diego County Farm Bureau. This year we celebrated Oceanside strawberry farmer, Neil Nagata. A much deserved award.
Shorter days means less eggs. Did your chickens start to slow down? Don’t worry we got you covered.
Order your eggs today. We have have some turkey eggs floating around in that basket. Order online or pick up anytime at Golden Eagle Farms in Ramona.
Obsessed with these faces.
Fall calving season is right around the corner……
Super fun night CowBelling! We put on our second annual dinner and dance to raise money for scholarships but not just any scholarships, they’re specifically for kids in this county perusing higher education in agriculture. With such a small segment of the population involved in agriculture we need these kiddos more than ever!
Thanks to all who help organize, donate to the auction, or helped support. You all made this a truly memorable event.

Pretty turkey feathers!!!
We’re trying a little something different and have started bundling up tail and wing feathers from the turkey boys. I always stick a couple in my flower arrangements and they always give it that little extra touch.
Head over to the ranch store for a bundle.
Determined as all get up. Morgan’s mind is made up that’s she going to be quite the hand and nothing is getting in her way.
She practiced roping for 2 hours today. Mostly by herself. She told me she WAS going to catch herself a steer on horseback today. And guess what? She did. It was a roping dummy, but it still counts. I really admire this girls grit. She doesn’t give up easily at all. ❤️
From rainbows to lightning, that storm escalated quickly. I love a good monsoon!
Beef doesn’t come from the grocery store! It comes from hard working ranchers across the country. We must teach kiddos this for not only beef but all commodities. Learn where your food comes from and what resources go into that product.
I'm out with the San Diego County CowBelles pushing beef education at the Ag In The Classroom Teacher Resource Fair. Beef education isn’t just cuts of beef and cooking, it encompasses cowboy heritage (history) to sustainability (science). Contact your favorite local cattlewomen to see how you can integrate beef into your lesson plans at school or at home.
