Loncito Cartwright

A true old-time Texas rancher of the first order, Cartwright breeds about 600 grass-fed, hormone- and antibiotic-free lambs at his family’s Twin Oaks Ranch just south of San Antonio. Cartwright, who also raised cows and pigs, took over for his father, who was been a cattle rancher on the ranch since the 1930s, and he’s fond of telling anybody who’ll listen that grass-fed red meat has the same kind of omega fatty acids as salmon. Cartwright is also a member of the King Land & Water conservation group, a co-op of ranchers dedicated to helping ranchers with land stewardship issues, including selling and buying acres.
