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.

There’s still time to head to the farmers market today to stock up on all your favorites— but if you just can’t manage to get out of your pajamas quite yet, our webshop is open for you! Grotto Rossotti can be found on our website, and it has tons of amazing specials and boxes full of pasture raised veal, grass fed goat, pastured poultry, even pet treats! 😍

Know your rancher, know your food. It’s a phrase we hear a lot, but we truly believe in the message. When you find ranchers and farmers who treat the environment and the animals with care and respect, in a way that aligns with your personal values, then you are supporting a sustainable and regenerative food system. You are voting for a better world with your dollars. You are buying local, and supporting folks in your community. And we are so grateful! 

Weekly PSA— the Marin County Farmers Market is tomorrow, on Sunday at the Civic Center. It’s a fabulous place to find all of the most amazing pasture raised meats, local produce, cheeses, wines, flowers, and so much more! We can’t wait to see you there. 💚
Reminding ourselves that the green grass will return once again, as it always does. 🌱 Our cows play an integral role in fertilizing the land, and we are grateful for our chance to help manage this beautiful ecosystem, home to thousands of different species of animals, insects, birds, and plants. Humane and sustainable ranching plays an integral role for our community, and we are always grateful for our opportunity to carry on this work. ☀️💚🤎

Early autumn heat wave is perfect for a taco break! Love these ones by @aim.ceo.andy, featuring our pasture raised meats and other goodies from our fellow farmers market friends! 

Speaking of the farmers market— will we see your wonderful face at the Civic Center tomorrow? It’s going to be a glorious morning. We recommend coming early to beat the heat! ☀️
That’s one happy bull right there, hanging out with his ladies! 

Hope you are all enjoying as lovely of an autumn week as this fellow is. 🥰

Feels like soup weather right about now! We’ll be at the farmers market tomorrow, rain or shine, if you’d like to stock up for all your fall weather comfort food needs.🍜😋❤️

We think keeping cows and their calves together is the most humane way to raise veal. Letting these babes spend their whole lives right next to their mothers who birthed them, drinking their milk and nibbling on grasses, is the best way to ensure healthy, happy animals. We love getting the chance to help these mommas raise their young, out on the pastures, each and every day. 💛

#pastureraised #humanelyraised
There’s a beauty in this land, even when the heat has baked the grasses and we all long for autumn‘s rain. The animals enjoy sunshine and shade, and those cool coastal breezes that always pick up, just when we need them.

Pasture raised veal tartare to celebrate the ending of this heat wave? To celebrate the end of summer? To celebrate the coming weekend? Do we even need a reason?? 😍

The ever-delectable veal chop! This is one of our favorite cuts of our pasture raised veal— all of the rich color means the meat is full of flavor and iron, though much lower in fat than beef. It’s versatile enough for a weeknight dinner, but robust enough for a truly special occasion. 

Find our pasture raised meats at fine Bay Area restaurants (like @altovinosf! Thanks for this lovely pic! 🥰), artisan butcher shops, online at our webshop Grotto Rossotti, or at the Sunday Marin County Civic Center Farmers Market.

Taking a deep breath on Sunday morning, feeling so grateful for this life of ours! Tending the land with care, helping our cows take care of their babes, and feeding our community that we are so deeply connected to. Thank you for being a part of our story!

It’s Sunday, and you know what that means! Farmers market day is here! We will be at the Marin Civic Center until 1pm today. Will you come visit, and find the absolute greatest produce, meats, cheeses, and flowers the season has to offer?

These principles are the core of everything we do here at Rossotti Ranch. A combined nine generations of stewardship on this land are just one part of our deep commitment to our animals, our environment, and our community. 💚 

This reel features two different steaks from our seasonal grass fed beef! We only offer it fresh in the late spring and early summer, when the grasses are at their nutritive peak. And yes, it is exceptionally delicious. 🥰
Greetings from the pasture! Our cows have plenty of space to roam about, graze on delicious coastal grasses, and enjoy their days alongside their calves. We’re always working to support our amazing animals, this incredible land, and our local community. 🧡
