About the producer
Rancho Llano Seco is a 150-year old 6th generation family farm with a rich history of balancing agriculture, livestock husbandry and conservation. Llano Seco means dry plain in Spanish, and comes from the dry land wheat fields that have been a source of pride for the Rancho's farmers since its inception. Located between the Sacramento River and Chico Creek, and their various sloughs and oxbows, Rancho Llano Seco respectfully carries on the traditions of the Wintu, Maidu and Yana tribes of this region, balancing the cultivated fields, untouched waterways and wilderness corridors. Among their crops are heirloom beans and ancient grains, grown with methods honed over the decades and which maintain the fertility of the soil and nutritional value and flavor of these unique varieties.
