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.

An image of utter contentment. We might be getting tired of the rain, but these cows sure are delighted with all of this green grass and the sure signs of spring!
More stormy weather calls for more comfort food! Granny Corda’s Meatloaf recipe uses our pasture raised veal and is up on our website. (Link in profile.) Stay cozy, friends! ♥️
Now that’s a pasture with a view! Our cows sure do lead a lovely life out here in these lush coastal grasses.
💚😍🌱💙
Get yourself ready for the Big Game with a morning trip to the Marin County Farmers Market Sunday morning! We will be there with all of the game day meats you could want. 😍 Sausages? Tacos? Burgers? Steaks for the grill? Pasture raised meats for the win! 
(Oh, and Go Niners, obviously🥰) 
❤️🏈❤️🍔❤️🌮❤️🥩❤️
These winter rains seem neverending, but they sure do make for some verdant green pastures! Our cows love nothing more than spending their mornings and afternoons lounging and snacking. 🌱💚🌿
@altovinosf never disappoints. 😍😍😍
With a return of rain and wind, we turn again to soups and stews! Favorite weeknight tip: use pasture raised veal sausage as the base for a hearty soup that is warm, filling, and fast. Bonus points if you use a heap of fresh greens from the farmers market! 🥣🥬⛈️
WE ARE BACK! What a fantastic morning to return to the Marin County Civic Center farmers market. How does it feel like spring already?? We have missed you — come by and say hello. 👋 We will be here until the market closes at 1pm. 🙋‍♂️
All this rainy weather has us craving some *serious* bolognese. We like to use a mix of pasture raised meats, some bone broth, and the best parmigiano reggiano we can get our hands on! Now the real question is should we serve it with pappardelle, or go all out with a lasagna?
Just a reminder, we are on our last day of winter break, so we will NOT be at the Marin Farmers Market this morning. But we absolutely cannot wait to see you next Sunday, January 28! 💚
Do you know that offal is a superfood? One of our favorite ways to use pasture raised veal liver is in a savory pâté. It is also wonderful when mixed with ground veal to make absolutely phenomenal meatballs. Offal is a nutrient dense food, and pasture raised offal is not only higher in terms of of nutrients, but also flavor and sustainability. Check out the Cook section of our website to find our recipe for Superfood Meatballs or let us know your favorite ways to use offal in the comments below!
It’s pasta weather! Creamy wild mushrooms over pappardelle served alongside pasture raised veal steak make the perfect stormy meal. 

❤️
We will not be at the Marin Farmers Market this Sunday, but our online shop is always open for you! 🥰
New Year’s goal every year: Eat. More. Salad! We love using pasture raised veal loin because it is so lean, while remaining full of iron, protein, and flavor! We like it with blue cheese crumbles and tomatoes, but it’s also perfect with winter squash and farro, or even kale and crispy croutons. You simply cannot go wrong. 🌱❤️
Hope everyone is enjoying a splendid start to 2024! We are kicking off the new year with a little rest and family time. 🥰 We will not be at the farmers market the next few weeks, but our online shop, Grotto Rossotti, is always open for you! 😚
Last storm of the year has called for hearty soup! This one is made with #rossottiranch veal bone broth and fresh veggies from the farmers market. Add in a few Gruyère toasts and we are feeling nice and cozy. ☺️

 Come join us Sunday for the last market of 2023! We’ll be at the Marin Civic Center Farmers Market from 8 am - 1 pm.
Excuse us while we ogle this beautiful #rossotiranch Pasture Raised Veal Carne Cruda from @flourandwatersf .  It’s their version of tartare, mixed with a brunoise of Parmigiano Reggiano, and finished with crispy potato and egg yolk. Just, wow. 😍❤️🫠 @chefryanpollnow

Pasture raised veal short ribs with polenta! We asked y‘all what we should serve with these incredibly tender short ribs, and the vote was overwhelmingly in favor of polenta. 🌽 🤎 This was the perfect cold weather meal: elegant enough for a dinner party or even Christmas Day, and homey enough for a chilly Tuesday. 

Have you thought about Christmas dinner yet? We will have some incredible options for you at the Marin County Farmers Market this Sunday, if you want to drop by for some ideas! 😍

The night before Thanksgiving, we like to keep it simple. Grilled veggies, grilled pasture raised veal, and a fresh salad. Have to keep that oven free for all of the pies! 😋😉

Hope you all have a safe and joyous holiday, friends. 🤎
Sunday is the day to get yourself to the farmers market to prepare for the cooking Olympics this week! If you have a smaller crowd this year, we love the tradition of giving everyone their own personal Cornish Game Hen. And our pasture raised chickens are incredibly juicy and flavorful. Need appetizer ideas? How about mushrooms stuffed with pasture raised veal sausage, or even tiny cocktail meatballs with ground grass fed goat? The market is packed with inspiration and a bounty of autumn produce, so you can check everything off your shopping list. 🍁Can’t wait to see you Sunday!
Bring on the rain! Autumn showers bring green green grass for our animals to enjoy. As they spend their whole lives out in the pasture, they couldn’t be happier with this return of the drizzle. 💚
Good morning friends! A lovely day for a farmers market visit, and our favorite day of the week! We truly love getting to see your faces and chat about our dinner plans for the week. 💛 We are here until 1pm!
