Open House 2013 Invitation
Ranch Open House and You are Invited
Date: Saturday May 11th
Time: 11 - 3 p.m.
Connecting with Your FoodYou are invited to experience the beautiful countryside, learn about our ranch operations, partake in the various classes we are offering and enjoy a juicy 100% grassfed burger. Come for the day and you can even visit some of the fine wineries in our area - the Santa Rita Hills.
Tour the ranch by foot and/or take a hay ride, see our animals up close or from behind the fence. View the cows chewing their cud, visit the chicken brooder where our baby chicks are housed, see our organic pasture-raised broiler chickens in their field shelters, check out our pasture raised egg laying chickens in their egg mobile, and examine our new fodder system. We will even have a jumper for the kids to work off some of that excess energy they always seem to have.
This year we are adding some classes which are sure to delight those who have a thirst for learning. Make sure to bring a blanket to enjoy the talk and have a comfy place to sit.
