The Ranch

Welcome to La Panza Ranch - a historic cattle ranch located in the picturesque San Juan Creek Valley. Here, a part of the Old West remains today. With panoramic views of the rugged La Panza Mountains, to the sweeping vistas of the Carrisa Plains, La Panza Ranch is home to an abundance of wildlife. It is common to see deer, wild boar, bear and the occasional mountain lion roam our hills. Additionally, the famous Tule Elk is also a roamer of the plains and an occasional frequenter of our water troughs.

Throughout the years La Panza Ranch has served as a cattle ranch where many neighbors have worked as ranch hands. Today, this historic cattle ranch is supplemented by farming alfalfa and grain hay, wine grapes and olives. A portion of our grapes are sold to local wineries. The olives are used to produce our award winning signature La Panza Ranch Olive Oils. Our olive orchard consists of 251 acres of super high density olives. We are proud to grow three different olives: Arbequina, Arbosana and Koroneiki - which we use to blend in our signature oils. Our process is done on-site which ensures the freshest and highest quality products, from orchard to table.

The ranch is also home to our resident honeybees which help produce our La Panza Ranch Honey. The bees visit secluded alcoves that are surrounded by indigenous wild flowers including wild buckwheat, blue curl and sage to name a few. These industrious artisans spend their days crafting full-flavored honey with a just-right sweetness that is second to none.
