About Us
Paicines Ranch consists of approximately 7000 acres of rangeland, 550 acres of row crop ground, and 25 acres of vineyard, all certified organic. In all 3 areas we are making changes to move towards more perennial systems, more complexity, and more diversity. We expect that as we make changes in management, we will, through our monitoring, see positive changes in soil characteristics, above-ground plant and animal communities, and productivity.

We expect to grow healthier food, sequester carbon which will help mitigate climate change, improve water quality in downstream waterways, increase our resilience in the face of climate variability, create an abundance of life, and generate more profit in the medium term.
We believe that healthy soil, healthy plants, and healthy animals lead to healthier food. All of our land is certified organic, meaning that we don't use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. We never feed routine antibiotics or treat our animals with toxic pesticides. Animals are finished on diverse pastures where they free-range and choose the nutrition they need at the moment. There is a great deal of evidence that grass-fed beef contains higher ratios of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, along with higher levels of many key micronutrients when compared to conventional beef.
