Locally Sourced

SunFed Ranch, with ranches located north of Sacramento, brings over 150 years of ranching and passion to the plate. The folks at SunFed say it best, “We have our hands and hearts in every stage of raising our beef. From the first blade of grass to your dinner plate, you can feel good about the origin and quality of what we’re serving up. Our cattle are 100% grass fed and 100% grass finished, always treated with the highest level of care and dignity. Some say we like to spoil our cattle with all the sunshine and grazing they crave…and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Our cattle are born and raised exclusively on American Family Ranches, creating jobs and opportunities in our local communities. And because we utilize progressive rotational grazing and regenerative agriculture, SunFed Ranch is beef that you — and the planet — can feel good about.”

What’s Cookin'

Farm-to-Fork season is here! SunFed Ranch’s succulent braised beef is the star of our middle and high school September menu. Slow-cooked to perfection we’ve infused the dish with delicious aromatic spices and herbs, creating a beautiful depth of flavor. Each dish is paired with fresh carrots, and creamy mashed potatoes the perfect complement to the tender beef.
