Pasture Raised Livestock on the Coast
Pomponio Ranch is a 2,700-acre ranch tucked away the coastal rolling hills in a canyon along the coast between San Gregorio and Pescadero. This ranch has a great history of being a long time cattle ranch, and at one time hosted rodeos.
We have great honor in being stewards of the land here at Pomponio Ranch. Here at Pomponio Ranch we use Alan Savory’s principles on grass management. We rotate our cattle from pasture to pasture to improve the soil conditions and diversity of grass on the ranch.
Native Catering SF has been purchasing Pomponio Ranch meats for over 2 years now. Since being invited by Corey and Chris to take a tour of the ranch we knew right then that Pomponio Ranch would be our go to Spot for pasture raised products in the Bay Area. The “Grilled Pomponio Ranch Bavette” has been a staple on our menu and soon became one of the most popular items we sell. The livestock is well taken care of and it shows within the quality of the meat. Taking the time and effort in maintaining a cattle ranch with ethics and dignity is no small task that is why we are excited for each opportunity to transform their hardwork and care onto the plate for our customers!Wyatt Fields
What is not to love about Pomponio Ranch? The products we receive at The Barn in Half Moon Bay, from Pomponio Ranch are delicious, fresh and local. Their small herd of cows could almost qualify as pets. During our visits, the cows walked right up to us to say "hello". You can clearly taste the pasture-fed difference between beef raised on a large fed lots vs the beef that comes from thoughtfully raising animals in a space where they have room to graze. While Pomponio Ranch has experimented with raising heritage pigs, they have provided us with several new products to test. It has always felt like a symbiotic relationship between Pomponio and The Barn. They genuinely care about our feed back of their products. Not only do they care about their animals, they clearly care about our business. While our customers have enjoyed several cuts of beef and pork, our staff can honestly can say, "We have never had better bacon!" We super appreciate the high level of face to face customer service we receive. It is an absolute pleasure to work with Pomponio Meats.Jill and Cecca

I have been working with Pomponio Ranch for quite some time and have nothing but praise for what they do. Since working with Chris and his team, we have had a tremendous amount of compliments from our guests on the quality, flavor, and consistency of their product. The meat has a unique flavor which is indicative of the thoughtfulness and honesty of pasture raised Beef. Also, the Beef makes an incredible burger which has quite a following in our bar. This just goes to show the versatility let alone quality of the meat.
I wholeheartedly believe in the saying, "you are what you eat," and it shows in the excellence of Pomponio Ranch Beef. I will be working with them for years to come.Chef Chris Aquino
