Recently on the Ranch

Who says offal isn’t beautiful?! Love this dreamy pic from @whatgroovyeats, featuring Rossotti Ranch pasture raised veal heart. So nutritious and so delicious! 

(Ps— we are here at the farmer’s market for you this morning until 1 pm!)
In for some cooler weather for tomorrow’s market day! Bring on the pasture raised veal braises, the smoked grass fed goat loin, and the almighty bratwurst, cooked with apples and cabbages! Can you tell we are excited for fall? We’d love to see you there, at the happiest place to do your weekly shop, 8 am - 1 pm. 
🍁🐂🌞🐐

A picture of our local foodshed, in one glorious dish! @victoria_aut_mors made this stunning lasagna featuring #rossottiranch pasture raised veal, @marinrootsfarm Swiss chard, cheese from @tomalesfarmsteadcreamery, @millvalleypasta lasagna sheets, and mushrooms from Solano Mushroom Farm. We are so grateful to be a part of this wonderful community! 😍🥂

Did you know that we have a blog? And that it has tons of tips and how-tos for you, like how to truss poultry or how to carve a rack of goat? We’ve also got meal ideas and recipe collections and lots more info on how we raise our animals and tend to the land. Link in profile if you fancy a read! ❤️✍️🥣
We are deep into *mama-and-brand-new-baby* season, and we just can’t get enough of the cuteness! So delighted that these babes will get to stay with their own mothers and enjoy their milk (and the beautiful green grass once the rain returns!) for their whole lives. 🌱🌞❤️

We are finally getting a little taste of fall with these cooler nights we are enjoying! Definitely feeling like a roast pasture raised veal, lots of garlic and pepper and lemon, maybe a side bowl of buttery mashed potatoes? 😍

Hope you are having a glorious, sun-drenched weekend! Will we see you at the farmers market tomorrow? We’d love to chat with you about what you are cooking this week, and help you plan something truly delicious! 🌞 Remember the market is open from 8am- 1pm, and all of our fellow ranchers, farmers, fishermen, cheese makers, artisans, and vendors are also excited to see you!

Nothing like the heat of a grill on a sweltering “California autumn” day to help make a fabulous dinner! We love a good mixed grill any time of year because there’s always a little something for everyone. What’s your absolute favorite thing to grill? Ours *might* be our house-made bratwurst, but it’s tough to choose! 

🌞🌞🌞

Looks like that warm summer weather isn’t quite ready to leave yet! Bring on the sweet tomatoes and some fresh peppers and maybe a chimichurri and definitely some pasture raised veal steaks, because we are going to enjoy the bright flavors of the season a bit longer!

Just taking a stroll through the pastures, moving from one beautiful place to another. These unhurried moments on the ranch are so sweet and wonderful for our cows, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Who else is exceedingly excited for the weekend? What should we cook? What should we do? What are YOU cooking this weekend? What fun adventures are you embarking on??

We will be at the farmer’s market on Sunday, which is always the highlight of our whole week, and something we highly recommend as a must-do activity, if you need some ideas. ☺️😉

(Reminiscing on this lovely #rossottiranch pasture raised veal dish from @dailydriversf, photo by @poppyseed__pr 😍)
Happy first day of fall! 🍎🍏🍎🍏
So lucky that we have these beautiful old orchards on the ranch to provide our family with allll the apples! What should we make? Pasture raised veal loin with sautéed apples and cabbage?  Or maybe a braised veal breast with apple, kale, and wild rice stuffing? We know there will at least be apple pie!😋😍
It’s farmers market day, and we can’t wait to help you pick out the perfect cuts of pasture raised veal for the week ahead! We will be here until 1pm today! 😃
What better way to celebrate #nationalcheeseburgerday than with a slider party?! Whether you choose grass fed beef, pasture raised veal, or even grass fed goat, make sure to have a variety of cheeses and toppings on hand so everyone can customize their sliders to their liking! Served alongside some fresh watermelon and simple s’mores for dessert, and you’ve got the perfect farewell to summer menu. 🍔🌞🍉🍫
It’s time for some braised pasture raised meats! Irish stew? Veal Bourguignon? Chili con carne? The options are endless. With so many different cuisines and cultures to explore, we can never get tired of a hearty stew once the seasons begin to change. ❤️🍁
Is this autumn we feel in the air? We are enjoying this cooler weather this week— and it’s getting us in the spirit of apple-picking, frantic canning, and fall cooking! What’s your favorite autumn activity? 🍂🍁👻
Could there be a more glorious time of year at the farmers market? Every stall is just overflowing with all of the late summer tomatoes, melons, peppers and corn, right alongside new crop apples and Brussels sprouts and wild mushrooms. Come down a take a stroll to see what inspires you! Perhaps some easy veal cutlets with a crisp green and fresh peach salad? Or maybe goat tacos topped with a tomato corn salsa? 

Stop by and say hi and we will help you figure out what to make for dinner this week!
Nothing says comfort food like grandma‘s meatloaf! We love making meatloaf with our pasture raised ground veal— it makes for a rich yet surprisingly light meal that feels like all things autumn. We‘ve got our favorite recipe up on the Cook section of our website. 🍁❤️
Always feeling so blessed and lucky to get to tend this land that our ancestors have tended for a combined nine generations. We treat our animals and the land with care and dignity, so that we can continue feeding our community for generations to come.
Hope you are spending your Sunday doing something fun and relaxing, with those you love! 💕🌞❤️
Tomorrow is Cornish Game Hen day for us at the Farmer’s Market! Will we see you there? If you’ve had your eye on these beauties, tomorrow could be the last chance you get until our next batch is ready later on this year. 💛
Farmers Market day is this Sunday, and did you hear the news? We will have CORNISH GAME HENS this week! We raise a limited amount of these free-foraging, pasture raised birds, and we always sell out. If you’d like to have some shipped to your doorstep, or want to place your order in advance for farmers market pickup (*highly* recommended), then visit our webshop, Grotto Rossotti, before we run out! 🌞

One of our most delicious items is back in stock— Cornish Game Hens! These delectable birds always sell out super quickly, so if you’d like to snag a few, check out our webshop, Grotto Rossotti, and place your order for delivery or Farmers Market pickup ASAP! 

We hand-raise super small flocks of these tiny-but-mighty birds, and only have them available a few times a year. They are a crowd favorite, probably because they are so juicy and succulent! Check the link in our bio to visit our shop!

Hello friends! We would love to see you this morning at the farmers market— come down early to beat the heat! We have so many goodies for you, and want to make sure you are all stocked up for the week with enough pasture raised meats, fresh summer vegetables, grains, cheeses, and flowers! 🌞💕👋
This heat wave is making us want allll the salads! Here’s one of our favorites: veal loin salad with blue cheese crumbles! Head to the link in our profile for the recipe featuring crisp lettuces, sweet cherry tomatoes, crunchy radishes, pasture raised veal, one of our favorite local cheeses, and a perfect vinaigrette! 🥗😍
Midweek greetings to you all! Here’s to sunshine, wide open pastures, and a stress-free life. 🌞
Always time for a laugh at the farmers market! It’s a great day to stock up on your favorites— this is seriously one of the best times of year to visit the market and get all of the exquisite fresh produce, breads, pasture raised meats (👋🙋), flowers, cheeses, and other delicious goodies! Hope to see you today (we’ll be here until 1pm).
It’s amazing to see the animals we work so hard to raise, to give a beautiful life to, be treated with such care and reverence by the chefs who receive them. @altovinosf is one of our favorite restaurant partners, and this beautiful spinach pasta filled with red wine braised pasture raised Rossotti Ranch veal is one of the many reasons why! True ranch-to-table dining at its best!
