Regenerative Grazing & Direct Marketing

May 1 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Free

Nestled in the hills near Tomales in Marin County, Stemple Creek Ranch is a fourth-generation organic ranch raising grass-fed grass-finished beef and lamb and pastured pork. In this field day, you’ll get a chance to tour their ranch and learn about their regenerative grazing methods, as well as to hear about how they have created a direct marketing and value added business for their meat products.
The first ranch in the US to implement a carbon farm plan, Stemple Creek continues to lead the way on regenerative agriculture. The Poncia family has lived and run a family ranch on the same ranch site for over 100 years in Tomales, a scenic drive north of San Francisco on Highway 1. Angelo Poncia, their family’s first immigrant to the United States from Italy, settled here in 1902. Today, Angelo’s grandson and great-grandson, Loren Poncia, still operate their family’s cattle ranch raising all natural, grass-fed beef and lamb. The land is an extension of the family, with Stemple Creek winding through the rolling hills and emptying into the Pacific Ocean just a few miles west of their home.
