Our Story

Welcome to Sanford Ranch! From our Family Ranch to Your Table.

We are enthusiastic and thrilled to share Sanford Ranch’s delicious beef to our customers. Our family owned and operated ranch is located in the agriculture community of Fallon, Nevada. We are a family team, working side by side on our ranch where our meat products are raised locally, without the use of growth hormones, steroids, growth promoting antibiotics, fillers, added coloring etc., and with access to pasture for their entire life. We feel this provides ultra-fresh and wholesome food to share with your family. Our focus is to provide superior quality beef on a family friendly budget. We understand the desire to feed your family high-quality, nutritious meat without breaking the bank.

Ranching has become a tradition in our family with three generations involved! Sanford Ranch started in 1996 with “Big D”, “Gerbil”, and their two sons raising Black Angus Beef in the Northern Nevada area. “Big D” earned his name since we tease him about his size and D for Dad, but now most days he mostly goes by Grandpa. “Gerbil” earned her name since she is always on the move, small and inquisitive, but she enjoys being called “grammy grammy grammy” now.

Big D and Gerbil’s sons, Mike and Joe, both went away for school but came back to ranching with their own families in tow! Mike’s wife, Dani, is from Reno and her days are spent wrangling children, organizing steaks, washing jeans, and making buffets for the ranch crew. Joe met Chelsea unexpectedly in Las Vegas. She met and fell in love with a rugged cowboy. Now she live in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch and is always chipping dried manure from her high heels and taking their son on tractor rides.

Thank you for supporting local agriculture and we look forward to sharing a steak with you!
