Locale Product

Located on the beautiful central coast in Cayucos, California.

Old Creek Ranch is nestled in the hills behind the small coastal town of Cayucos, California. Looking for a healthy and safe environment to raise their young family, Bob and Ruth Blanchard purchased the small dairy farm in 1949 and moved from Los Angeles leaving the city life behind.

Dairying was a constant struggle, at best, and realizing the favorable climate and potential for citrus, Bob Sr. planted the first commercial orange grove in San Luis Obispo County. Within a few years avocados became part of the scenery followed by beef cattle, sheep, goats and chickens.

Over 50 years have gone by and now the younger generation, is embarking on a new venture following the family philosophy of "always looking forward. We invite your family to experience the taste of country life - healthy, wholesome products that are "grown in harmony with nature." 12520 Santa Rita Rd. Cayucos, California 93430 (805) 995-1164

Grower Comments

At Old Creek Ranch we are guided by the philosophy of "production in harmony with nature." Cattle, sheep, and goats are rotated across their range in a manner designed to mimic the beneficial impact of wild grazers. We are predator friendly. Our management style produces a thriving natural food chain for a diverse population of cougars, coyotes, hawks, and other predatory critters, while guardian dogs diligently protect the domestic livestock.

We encourage plant, animal, and insect diversity in our orchards and rangeland, building soil health and fertility, while reducing opportunity for large populations of troublesome pests. Fertilizers, when used, are organic. We use no chemical or artificial fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides or growth stimulants on land, plants or livestock.

Our goal is to produce wholesome flavorful food, using methods that are in total harmony with nature.
