Our Story

Who We Are: The Florida Beef Initiative

Welcome to the Florida Beef Initiative, where tradition meets innovation. Located in the heartland of America's oldest cattle-ranching state, we are on a transformative journey to revitalize local economies. Our mission is simple yet profound: to create a self-sustaining local economy where wealth circulates within the community. We achieve this through a blend of traditional practices and modern innovations.

Our Legacy: Leonard Horak and Circle 6 Ranch

At the core of our operations is our strategic partnership with Circle 6 Ranch, under the visionary leadership of Leonard Horak. Leonard's wisdom serves as a cornerstone for our practices, guiding us as we navigate a decade poised for significant change. His expertise is evident in the unparalleled quality and flavor of Circle 6 beef, a unique blend of Black Angus and Beefmaster cattle raised on soil enriched over three decades.

Inspired by the Beef Initiative

We are honored to be inspired by and supported by the Beef Initiative, a trade group that shares our commitment to localizing and securing food supply chains. Much like the Beef Initiative, we focus on building decentralized networks that include everyone from ranchers to consumers. We also share a commitment to food integrity, offering products that are free from antibiotics, added hormones, pesticides, and herbicides. Learn more at https://beefinitiative.com/

Our Partnership with Bitcoin Bay


At the heart of the Florida Beef Initiative is a commitment to community collaboration, a value we share with our latest partner, Bitcoin Bay. This groundbreaking alliance aims to strengthen both local economies and food supply chains through decentralization and education. Together, we're not just offering alternative payment options like Bitcoin; we're empowering consumers and businesses to make choices that enrich their local communities and contribute to a more resilient, sustainable future.
