Meet the Ranchers

The Rossotti’s story begins in the mountains of Switzerland, well over a hundred years ago. After immigrating to the United States in 1892, Julie and Tony Rossotti’s great great grandfathers worked side-by-side to establish the ranching community of west Marin. Today, Julie and Tony continue the ranching traditions of a combined nine generations to produce some of the most humane and sustainable pasture raised veal, grass fed goat, as well as duck and chicken, available in the United States.

One of the best ways to truly appreciate the life One of the best ways to truly appreciate the life of the animal, as well as one of the best ways to eat meat mindfully and play your part in lessening our effects on climate change, is to embrace whole animal cooking. When you make use of every part of the animal, you not only honor its life— you make raising it more efficient. By ensuring none of it goes to waste, you help make sure all of the resources used to raising this animal aren’t wasted. And since we can’t think of a better way to raise and eat meat sustainably, we’ve put whole animal shares on sale in our webshop, Grotto Rossotti. Link in bio for more details!
