Ross Ranch is an 860-acre working ranch located just on the outskirts of Redding, CA. The ranch primarily consists of blue oak woodland, open grassland, and a handful of seasonal emergent wetlands and is permanently protected from development by a conservation easement. The ranch is used as a ‚Äúlearning laboratory‚ÄĚ to test and implement regenerative agricultural practices that not only provide sustainable food production but improve soil health, increase natural water storage, and maintain healthy wildlife populations. Along with our grazing partner, we strive to be good stewards of the land.
