Recently on the Ranch

Ok, now that the turkey holiday is over, can we start talking about pasture raised briskets and racks of veal and veal roasts?! Hooray for the official start to the holiday season! 

Seriously though, we hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and are enjoying a weekend with family and friends and leftover turkey sandwiches (the best!). We are so so grateful to you, our community, for letting us continue our family heritage of nourishing our neighbors.

A lovely holiday kick-off with this pâté en croûte by @electriccitybutcher! With pasture raised #rossottiranch veal, walnuts, prunes, and brandy, we can’t think of a more delectable holiday treat. 😍❤️🥰

Here’s a little Sunday inspiration for you! Housemade tagliatelle with Rossotti Ranch veal Bolognese from @flourandwatersf 🥰😍🥰😍

It’s the best day of the week tomorrow— and it’s the BEST place to do your Thanksgiving shopping before the big day. Just don’t forget about all the other meals in the days leading up to Thursday! We are partial to pasture raised veal burgers or a hearty grass fed goat stew the fuel ourselves up for our marathon cooking sessions— what’s your favorite thing to eat before you get to all that stuffing and gravy? 

We’ll be at the market from 8am to 1pm tomorrow, and we’d love to see you and wish you a happy Thanksgiving!

Sometimes the beauty of this place, and the incredible work we get to do each day, just takes our breath away. Being able to feed our community, nurture our shared environment, and provide a truly sweet and special life for our animals is awe-some. Thank you for being a part of our community and supporting us and our ranch!

If you haven’t started planning those holiday menus yet, now is the time to start! And if you’re stumped for ideas, may we suggest a browse through the farmers market? There is always so much inspiration from our community of ranchers, farmers, cheese makers, break bakers, and artisan producers. We will be here for you today until 1pm at the Marin Civic Center! 🍁🦃🌲🥩

Breathing in the scent of fresh, sweet, new green grass and cool coastal fog. Lucky cows, and lucky ranchers!

Having a smaller Thanksgiving this year? Or do you maybe not *love* how dry turkey can get? Perhaps you just want to test out your brine recipe on a smaller sized bird before the big day. Whatever your reason, our pasture raised Cornish game hens might just be the holiday secret weapon you’ve been looking for! Their petite size means everyone can get their own beautiful centerpiece, or you can experiment with all sorts of different brines and dry rubs! They are on sale now in our webshop, Grotto Rossotti, as part of The Hen House package. Check out the link in our bio to read about what’s included! We ship all over the country or you can even order for Farmers Market pickup. 😍

Did you know that you can use grass fed goat meat in place of pork for many recipes? Take a cue from @chefjayne and try your hand at a Rossotti Ranch goat shoulder arrabiata, with Calabrian chilis, onion, garlic, fresh orange, and cinnamon! Doesn’t that sound just brilliantly delicious? 

😍🍊🌶🧡

Hope you are all having the most excellent weekend! We are here for you at the farmers market until 1pm, so come say hi! 🌿🌱🌞🐂🥰
Holy pepperoni! This gorgeous pie from @chefevanallumbaugh at @chefico is topped with pepperoni made with our Rossotti Ranch pasture raised veal, and we are absolutely swooning. Table for two, please!

If your weekend plans don’t include a trip to the farmers market, what else are you even doing?! Good local food, good friends, and always so much fun❤️ See you Sunday!
Every night is a good night for pasta! This one by @aim.ceo.andy features Rossotti Ranch bratwurst, bucatini, and a host of veggies and goodness from other farmers market vendors. Eating local is always a delight!

Happiest of Sundays and Happy Halloween to you all! Will you be joining us at the farmers market this morning? We’ve got everything you need for a warming pot of chili, a hearty stew, or even a festive veal parmigiana— you need something warm and delicious to fortify you for trick or treating in the rain, right?!

🍁🎃👻

If you happen to be in Arizona, head over to @themeatmarketaz to snag some of these Rossotti Ranch short ribs, and other pasture raised goodness!

If you are in the Bay Area, you can find a full selection of cuts (plus goat and sausage) at the Marin County Farmer’s market Sunday morning! 

And if you live anywhere else in the country (or just want to stay in your pjs all day), then you are always welcome to do your shopping at Grotto Rossotti, our online webshop!

Absolutely stunning Rossotti Ranch pasture raised veal carne cruda from our friends @altovinosf. If you are lucky enough to go visit them, you simply must!

It’s chicken soup weather for sure! Here’s a favorite— a Posole-inspired version that utilizes Rossotti Ranch pasture raised chicken! What’s your favorite chicken soup? 

Hope you are all staying safe and dry! We are *not* at the farmers market this morning, as we need to stay on the ranch to keep the mamas and babes safe during this storm. See you next week!
Hi friends! We are going to stick close to the ranch tomorrow, batten down the hatches during the storm! So we will miss seeing your wonderful faces at the farmers market in the morning, but our online shop, Grotto Rossotti, is always open for you. 🌧
All of this lovely rain means that green, green grass can’t be too far behind! And our ladies do love a freshly green pasture— it makes their milk exceptionally nutritious for their babes. 🌱🌱🌱

It’s slow cooked ragu pasta weather for sure! 😍 What’s your favorite rainy day food?
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? 😍

Greetings from the ladies of Rossotti Ranch! They’re enjoying a stroll through the pastures, nibbling as they please and enjoying the fresh coastal breezes. Hoping your weekend is just as lovely and relaxing!

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!
