Quality meats delivered to you.

We provide quality cuts of meats to some of the best restaurants all over the Bay Area.

Our ranch specializes in top Choice, Prime, Angus, “Kobe Style”, and natural beef. We are also proud to offer premium lamb, pork, veal and poultry as well.


Raised natural and with care.

Our animals are raised humanely on our California family ranch. We raise all of our animals without the use of antibiotics, hormones, or GMOs.

Our animals are fed only the best, a balanced ration of grains, hay, vitamins and minerals from our on-staff nutritionist. Their diet is completely vegetarian and never includes animal by-products or artificial ingredients. 


Healthy eating starts here.

Our animals are fed local wheat alfalfa, wheat straw, and corn stalks.

We only feed our livestock 100% source verifiable vegetarian corn. The corn comes from our on-site farm using sustainable natural practices to grow the feed, including composting to virtually eliminate the need for any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.


Never a pigsty.

Our ranch is kept clean and our animal living quarters are too. All of our animals have ample living space, freedom to roam, and always have access to clean water to drink.

This protects the animals from physical discomfort and stress, which reduces the chances of disease. That means a better, healthier animal for you.


Family owned for
three generations.

Schmitz Ranch is a small, independent business. We pride ourselves on being a family owned operation and plan to keep it that way for future generations. Just the way it was meant to be.

Environmentally sound practices.

Deliberately minimizing our carbon footprint.

Our ranch wastewater is not allowed to pollute local streams or lakes. It is captured, evaporated and then the solids are used for fertilizer. We continually support and enhance the land, water and air environmental quality in every way we can.

Schmitz Ranch's closed loop farming and ranching system has very low carbon emissions with wind, solar and bio-diesel used for energy. The neighboring orchards and vineyards coexist with our livestock, sharing natural resources in a diverse harmonious ecosystem.
