Meet the Ranch Families

The Swanson Family – California

Swanson2For over 40 yrs, raising healthy and happy sheep has been the Swanson family’s pride and passion, as well as their only way of life. Their sheep and lambs are raised on the early fall alfalfa pastures in the fertile San Joaquin Valley then brought to graze the fresh, early, spring pasture grasses of the coastal East Bay hills and summer pastures of the California Central Valley. They personally oversee and participate daily in coordinating sheep with natural seasonal grazing to benefit both sheep and good stewardship practices that continue to enhance the goodness of the land year after year.

Fresh air, cool water and free range grazing of prime forages are what their sheep are raised on. The Swanson’s thank you for allowing them to continue their tradition of California agriculture and raising California lamb for discerning consumers.
