You might ask,” Why should I purchase my meat from Lazy Arrow Natural Meats?”
Our family has been raising cattle for 6 generations. We were sustainable long before sustainability was a thing. The Morrisons started raising cattle in the late 1800’s and purchased their family ranch in Calabasas California, when Thousand Oaks was rolling pasture lands and cattle had to be driven by cowboys on horseback to the stock yards in downtown Las Angeles. The Morrison family had to recycle and reuse through the great depression and then again during World War 2 to make ends meet, just to survive, not as a fashion statement but to survive and thrive.
During the 1950’s and 1960’s as southern California grew, the city encroached on the old ranch forcing the Morrison family out, but not out of the ranching lifestyle that we hold dear. In 1978 the Morrisons Moved their cattle and established their new home to the breath taking grassy, oak studded hills of the Camatta Ranch on the Central Coast of California. The Camatta Ranch has been a cattle ranch since Mexican Land Grant days dating back to 1846 when it was put together by 2 Hispanic men. Cattle Ranching is a way of life not a get rich quick scheme and it’s a lifestyle that you have to love. What started with Great- Great- Great grandpa John Keys Morrison, was passed to Alonzo, then to Roy, Robert, Mark and our children and now to our grandchildren.
Mark and his family love this way of life so they decided to home school their children and to diversify the family ranch from strictly raising cattle to raising exotic animals for tours, guest stays, farm experiences, women, children and family events. Mark and his family feel so blessed that they wanted to share their lifestyle with others through their Lazy Arrow Adventures. Guests have been enjoying the ranch for over 25 years. Many of our guest who have had our ranch raised meat have asked to have our pasture raised beef, pork and venison available for purchase so now Lazy Arrow Meats has made what the family has enjoyed and nourished our family with for generations, available for purchase.
We have a family business that has grown through the decades, with hard work, slow consistent growth, dedicated to the preservation of the land and care for our animals.
Lazy Arrow Adventures is a dream come true to the Morrison Family. When Mark Morrison was a young boy he dreamed of collecting exotic hoof stock and giving them a natural habitat. When he turned 18 year of age, his dream became a reality! He started with just a pair of buffalo and today Lazy Arrow LLC has over 250 exotic animals. Lazy Arrow on the Camatta Ranch opened up for tours over 21 years ago, and has grown, as a guest ranch, to included camping, farm stays, agriculture ranch life tours, Music stage, Weddings, Cowboy action shooting and many other outdoor activities. The Lazy Arrow is home to Mark and Felicia Morrison, and their children Haustin, Garrett, Emilee, Tanna and their grand daughter Rainee. The Morrison family opened up Lazy Arrow Outdoor Adventures so that others could share in their wholesome and peaceful way of life.
