Ground Pork from pigsthat are a cross of Duroc, Yorkshire and Landrace breeds. Our hogs are fed GMO-free vegetarian grains and legumes, 75% of which are grown on our dry-land fields within a few miles of the barns. Pigs are confinement-free, raised in deep-bedded hoop barns with continual access to large open air pastures.
Our ground pork is the perfect ration of fat to lean meat, blended from the most flavorful cuts of the animal. It can be transformed into many dishes: spiced breakfast patties, tacos, ragù, chili, pork sloppy joes...the options are endless.
Rancho Llano Seco was incorporated in 1861 and has a rich history of balancing agriculture, live stock husbandry and conservation. The Rancho is one of the last Mexican land grant properties that remains intact. It is a reminder of a lost era when California, American, Indigenous, Mexican and Spanish histories intersected. Llano Seco means dry plain in spanish, and comes from the dry land wheat fields that have been a historical source of pride for the Rancho's farmers since its inception. In 1844, the last governor of Mexican California, Pio de Jesus Pico granted Llano Seco an 18,000-acre land tract to Sebastian Keyser, an Austrian trapper and colleague of John Sutter. In 1861, the Rancho was purchased by prominent San Francisco banker and diplomat John Parrott, an ancestor of the Thieriot family. He developed the land as one of the most profitable ranches in California, cultivating wheat, grains, sheep, hogs, cattle, and mules. In its 6th generation of gentle land stewardship, our family continues to explore and preserve Llano Seco's richness.
