Meet the Ranchers

The Rossottiโ€™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 Rossottiโ€™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.

Hi friends! We are taking the day off this Sunday to recover from the holiday and spend some quality time with family.๐Ÿ’š Canโ€™t wait to see you at next weekโ€™s farmers market!
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! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you all have a safe and joyous holiday, friends. ๐ŸคŽ
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. ๐ŸCanโ€™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 couldnโ€™t be happier with this return of the drizzle. ๐Ÿ’š
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. ๐Ÿ’› We are here until 1pm!
Our families have been tending this land and feeding this community for a combined nine generations. We are so proud to continue our heritage and preserve this beautiful place for generations to come. ๐Ÿ’›
GOOOD MORNING!! How are you feeling with that extra hour of sleep? You know what would feel fabulous this morning? A hearty stroll around the third largest farmers market in the state โ€” the Marin County Civic Center Farmerโ€™s Market! We will be here until 1, so you should have plenty of time to explore the wonders of the market. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
As the sun sets on another week, we hope you all have a lovely, fun, and restorative weekend. We will be at the farmers market this Sunday, and we hope to make it into your weekend plans! And if you wonโ€™t be stopping by, you can always find us online at our webshop, Grotto Rossotti. ๐Ÿ‘‹
Happy Halloween from all the spiders on the ranch!

We are BACK at the farmers market this Sunday! Come have a stroll and feel inspired by all of the fresh autumn produce, the local cheeses, hearth-baked breads, and of course โ€” pasture raised meats! We canโ€™t wait to see you. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹
Roast chicken is a great option any time of year, but something about autumn just makes it even more special. Roast a free ranging, pasture raised bird alongside some delicata squash or colorful root veggies, add a fresh salad, and finish with apple pie. Perfection!
Feeling that autumnal vibe with our favorite pasture raised osso buco served alongside creamy risotto and lots of parmigiano reggiano!

** we will not be at the farmers market this Sunday โ€” we are taking some much needed family time. Weโ€™ll see you next week, friends! **
The sight of a mama and her babe is always special. We believe the most humane way to raise cows is to keep the mother and calf togetherโ€” we donโ€™t separate them. The calves never see crates or pens, only wide open coastal pastures. We believe this is also the most sustainable way to raise animals and care for our land. ๐Ÿ’›
Weekends are for long cooking projects, like pasture raised veal Bolognese, or slow roasted osso buco. Drop by the Marin Civic Center Farmers Market today to gather your local, sustainable ingredients and then hurry home to let your culinary projects commence! We will be here until 1 pm. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ
Feeling especially grateful this week to be tending this land and staying connected to our local foodshed by providing the community with local, humane, sustainable pasture raised meats. ๐Ÿ’œ
Tomorrow is shaping up to be absolutely excellent! The heat will go back down to a pleasant warmth, perfect for a Sunday morning stroll at the Farmers Market. We have a wonderful selection of pasture raised veal, grass fed goat, and lots of other free range goodies. We canโ€™t wait to see you there!
The last gasps of summer bringing a heat wave to our autumn! Time to turn up that grill for some tacos. Or maybe we will grill a veal loin for a crisp salad with local greens? Of course, you can never go wrong with fresh, juicy burgersโ€ฆ 

Whatโ€™s your favorite meal for this transition season?
Warm and hearty autumn stews and soups are on our menu plan for the week! Whether you lean into a quick weeknight version featuring our pasture raised veal sausage or you are more in the mood for a low and slow tender shredded meat stew, weโ€™ve got you covered! Drop by the farmers market today for all of the inspiration and deliciousness you can possibly hold.
Pure weekend joy right here.๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ˜‚

What are your plans this fine fall weekend? May we recommend the Marin County Farmers Market on Sunday? Itโ€™s a wonderful way to support your local ranchers and farmers, and get all of the most delicious meats, produce, cheeses, and flowers anywhere on the west coast!
Food is art! In the hands of talented artist chefs like @nico_9123 @sf_octavia, it can be truly stunning. This dish features Rossotti Ranch pasture raised veal tartare dressed in ramp pesto with flowers and greens from @mediumfarm, photographed by @troxphotos at the farm itself. We love witnessing these brilliant collaborations and are so proud to partner with the incredible chefs in our community.
Canโ€˜t wait to see you at the Sunday Marin Farmers Market! It really is the most magical time of year at the market, and thereโ€™s so many delicious meats, produce, cheeses, breads, and treats for you to choose from! Will we see you there? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒž
Well, thatโ€™s it. Autumn is officially here, and that means it is Roasting Season! It may not have the same verve as grilling season, but we donโ€™t care! There is nothing better than pulling a juicy roast pasture raised veal from the oven, enjoying it with mashed potatoes and garlicky broccolini, then getting to enjoy leftovers for the week to come! ๐Ÿ‚โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ

The days may still be warm, but the evenings are promising that itโ€™s about to be Bolognese season! Pasture raised veal makes the silkiest and most flavorful sauce, in our opinion! ๐Ÿ˜
Getting to raise the next generation on this land that our families have stewarded for a combined 9 (!) generations is one of the most meaningful parts of our job. Not a bad way to grow up, we think! ๐Ÿ˜‰
We are positively swooning over this stunning dish from @sf_octavia ! Tortelli layered with tomato, spinach, and egg yolk pasta, Rossotti Ranch pasture raised veal belly, chanterelles, cannellini beans, and potato garum butter! How insanely delicious does that sound and look?! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
The only place we enjoy being at more than our beautiful ranch is our favorite farmers marketโ€” which is happening right now!! Join us at the Marin Civic Center today until 1pm to stock up on your favorite pasture raised meats, seasonal vegetables and fruits, local cheeses, and so much more. ๐Ÿ’š
No matter how good your Saturday has been, it canโ€™t top this bullโ€˜s day with his ladies! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜
