Welcome to Amber Oaks

Amber Oaks Ranch is a 70-acre homestead just south of Thorndale, TX (about 35 miles ENE of Austin). It was established in December 2015 by John & Molly Pantalone.

The purposes of Amber Oaks Ranch are threefold: to provide a secure future for ourselves and family, to put into practice the regenerative agricultural practices we’ve learned, and to provide a wholesome experience to our friends and neighbors.

Our meat is available for purchase on farm or at local farmers markets (see below).

GRASS FED & FINISHED BEEF

Our cows are born here on the ranch and are rotated through pesticide and chemical-free grassy pastures every day.

Our calves eat only grasses and legumes thus ensuring you receive the most natural, healthy meat possible.

PASTURED CHICKEN

All chickens are free range and truly pastured!

Flocks are moved to fresh, chemical-free grass daily, and fed non-GMO grain.

PASTURED PORK

Our pigs live continuously on chemical and pesticide free pasture rooting for forage.

They have access to shade, shelter, and wallows as well as vegetation, enjoying a healthy and stimulating environment year round.

  • A hearty welcome to our newest vendor Hayley’s Grains, a specialty grocer that will bring a wide variety of #Organic, #PlasticFree, and #LocallySourced goods to our thriving community. Hayley offers organic bulk grains and legumes including quinoa, arborio rice, lentils, and beans, in bulk. 
So how does bulk grain shopping work? Hayley brings her jars of grains – you bring a container. All you have to do is set the container you’ll be using on her scale and fill it with the grain you want! Cost will be based on weight of grain purchased. 

This is a great way to try new types of food without having to pay for a whole bags worth! Not sure what quinoa tastes like? No worries, you can buy a small serving of it to try at home before you commit to a bigger amount 🤗 She’ll also be there to answer any questions you have!

  • Welcome new vendor @lamasatabasqueña, a small family-owned business with a love for the traditional foods of Mexico. The essential ingredient to Mexican cuisine is masa, found in everything from the tortilla to the empanada and even in traditional drinks like pozol. This tradition and the rich history that it brings with it are central to the Tamalitos at La Masa Tabasqueña. They use fresh corn masa (they grind the corn ourselves) and traditional ingredients to make handmade Tamalitos and more. Whether you’re picking up lunch while shopping at the market or planning a family dinner, they’ve got you covered.
