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.
The historic 6th-generation family-run rancho responsibly and humanely raises pork and beef as well as cultivates heirloom beans, ancient grains, and walnuts.
