About 475 acres total, between the two farms, about 95 miles to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market

Farm History

Ranchers Casa Rosa Farms and Pasture 42 have teamed up to share a market stand offering their pasture-raised meats, olive oil, vinegar, soaps, and wools, all sourced from their Capay Valley farms. Both the da Rosas and the Mullers come from families that have been farming in the Central Valley for generations. The farmers share a commitment to raising pastured animals. Pasture 42 give their chickens, turkeys, pigs and cattle certified organic feed. Casa Rosa rotationally grazes their 100% grass-fed Limousin-influenced cattle and California Red sheep, both heritage breeds.

Fun Fact

Both farms have innovative takes on operations that go beyond simply ranching. Susan Muller of Pasture 42 has a master’s degree in Environmental Education and once operated a teaching farm in Southern Oregon. And in 2017 Casa Rosa opened The Commons Farm Kitchen and Bar in Guinda as a way to feed their community.
