Markegard Family Grass-Fed Ranch

Ranching and raising a family an old-fashioned way.

Markegard Family Ranch

A young family is living with the land and demonstrating sustainable agriculture can go hand-in-hand with preserving open space

(Published Wednesday, June 10, 2015)

Doug visits a modern-day family living the old-fashioned  rhythms of ranching life and raising grass-fed beef and other animals in a sustainable way along the San Mateo Coast.  The Markegard Family shows off their ranch initially preserved by the Peninsula Open Space Trust and now leased from the Midpeninsula Open Space District.  We discover their deep commitments to caring for the land and providing high-quality, locally grown food we can all enjoy.
