About Us / Stemple Creek Ranch History: Stemple Creek Ranch is an organic, family owned and operated cattle ranch in Marin County, California. We raise our animals on our own pasture land just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. We raise 100% all natural, grass-fed Angus beef and lamb. Our animals eat organic grass and clover and are never subjected to artificial hormones, growth promotants, or antibiotics. We are environmentally conscious and value biodiversity, working with mother nature to keep the land abundant and the animals happy and healthy. This is accomplished by using a variety of techniques, including protecting creeks with cattle crossings, utilizing electric fence that can be reconfigured in response to changing conditions, planting native species on creek banks, and carefully monitoring grazing to prevent overuse. In 2002, the third of four generations of our family in the ranching business received the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Excellence in Conservation Award. This is the highest award the NRCS gives to honor those outside the Federal government for their work in conservation. We sell out meat by the individual cut, half/whole lamb, and quarter/half/whole beef. We are also at the San Rafael Farmer's Market on Sundays at the Marin County Civic Center.
