A Co-Op For Ranchers, By Ranchers

The Bay Area Ranchers Co-op was founded to provide farming and ranching communities in the greater Bay Area with USDA-inspected animal harvest in a sustainable, non-competitive environment. We provide access to local processing with transparency, honesty and the benefit of oversight from the ranching community itself. Our Sixteen Founding Members have generations of experience in the raising, harvesting and processing of animals in Northern California. It is that experience that guides us as we look to provide a stable, stress-free harvesting option for generations to come.
