ABOUT THIS BOX
For the past seven years, one of our favorite stops at the Santa Barbara farmer’s market has been Rancho San Julian’s market table, where Elizabeth Poett sells pastured beef from her family ranch. This 14,000-acre ranch has been in Elizabeth’s family for over 8 generations and is one of California’s oldest family-run ranches. A profound love and respect for the land has been passed down through these generations. They have been raising cattle on pasture and using traditional herding methods on horseback for more than 200 years.
WHY THIS BOX?
The ranch, graced by California live oak, also grows a variety of vegetables, grapes, and lavender. Its tradition of environmental stewardship extends to solar power with a watering system designed to protect its many creeks and arroyos. Faced with the severe challenges of periodic droughts, Elizabeth Poett, who was born and raised on the ranch, has worked with her family to maintain the ranch’s sustainable farming practices by bringing on biodynamic guru Chris Thompson. The crops, cultivated with minimal water, are absolutely beautiful – a testament to the love and care that has gone into growing them.
This week, we’re delighted to offer some of Elizabeth’s favorite beef dishes, along with a few other recipes that highlight her wonderful produce.
- Rancher’s Meatloaf & Mashed Potatoes
- Carne Asada Tacos
- Chicken Chile Verde with Mexican Rice
- Watermelon Gazpacho** (if you have made too much gazpacho this summer, here’s a Greek Salad recipe)
- Dry Country Frittata with Dandelion Greens
- Potato Taquitos with Green Sauce
- Tempura Avocado with Mango Salad
