Bay Area Ranchers

Sonoma/Central Coast, CA

The Bay Area Ranchers Co-op was founded to provide farming and ranching communities in the greater Bay Area with USDA-inspected animal harvest in a sustainable, non-competitive environment.

Independent, Bay Area ranchers – having dealt with the concentration and reduction of meat processing- are taking control of the ranching community. Our lab is working with regional University of California Cooperative Extension and regional ranchers on the solution.  Scope it out at
