We grow beautiful grass-fed lamb.  We are the Columbel family who, in 1981, began the journey back to sourcing local food for local communities.  Our ‘farmstead flock’ is uniquely adapted to the habitat of these 200 acres of Sierra foothills.  We sell only our lambs that are born from our sustainable and thriving sheep flock.

DIRECT SALES: Delivery or pick-up by arrangement for retail and private. Check website for availability.  Customers can come to the ranch for their lamb or we will meet in town at the customer’s convenience.

RESTAURANTS: Ike’s Quarter Cafe, New Moon Cafe.

GROCERY STORES: Natural Selection, Mother Truckers.

FARMERS MARKETS: Saturday Farmer’s Market at the North Star House on Old Auburn Rd.
