Freestone Ranch is a small, family-owned, ecologically sound collaboration with the land in Western Sonoma County, CA. The Gay and Brady families are replanting our farm-family roots from Ohio and Utah in northern California for the next generation and beyond. Our human sources of inspiration include Allan Savory, Wes Jackson, Joel Salatin, Michael Pollan, and all the eaters, cooks, chefs, and parents we know, who feed their families every day.
We raise Black Angus beef and pastured pork with good grassland genetics on gorgeous fog-kissed hills just inland from the Pacific Ocean. We don't use antibiotics, vaccines, or growth hormones.
The primary food for the cows is grass, supplemented with top-quality alfalfa, kelp meal, and sea salt for minerals. Many of our customers say our beef is the best they've tasted.
Our pork is a heavenly mix of Duroc, Hampshire, Berkshire, and a touch of Old Spot for optimal performance on pasture and outstanding flavor.
The pigs get an organic feed mix to supplement their rooting adventures on pasture, along with whey from a local cheesemaker, organic veggie scraps from Bill's Farm Basket, and veggie treats from our own tables.
Our beef is available by the quarter or half (side) for pickup in Santa Rosa or Petaluma.
Our pork is available by the half or whole for pickup in Santa Rosa or Petaluma.
Our beef is available direct in quarters and halves (sides), as well as by the cut right here at the Ranch.

We love good beef I just had to write to tell you how much we enjoy the beef. It is unbelievably good, nourishing and a great value. Thank you for the care and consideration you put into raising the cattle. We appreciate all you do every time we enjoy beef for dinner. I love to watch my girls eat and eat and eat. I know I am giving them the very best start in life with your beef. Many, many thanks to you all. Gabrielle C, San Francisco
It's the flavor I had no idea grass-fed beef could be this tender and tasty. The hype is so crazy, and I get that if there's no actual grass, you have a problem. No problem here! Emma C, Santa Rosa
