Stemple Creek Ranch consistently produces some of the best beef I have ever had. The attention to detail and the pride with which Lisa and Loren run the ranch translates into the outstanding quality and flavor of the meat. You can taste how and where the meat is raised, like a fine wine. There is such depth of flavor, you can taste many different layers and complexities and the quality is outstanding. Thanks for ALL that you do!!!Aaron Rocchino, Owner of The Local Butcher Shop, Berkeley, CA
Chez Panisse serves Stemple Creek Ranch beef because it is delicious and because it is grass-fed and finished on certified organic pasture nearby in Tomales, California. The ranch is participating in the Marin Carbon Project which studies carbon sequestration techniques on working ranches in the north Bay Area with the goal of managed pasture land that naturally captures carbon from the atmosphere. We are grateful to be working with Loren and Lisa Poncia who are committed to regenerative ranching and to producing tasty, sustainable meats.Alice Waters, chef, restaurateur, activist and author, Owner, Chez Panisse
In 20 years of experience in this industry I have never worked with such a consistent grass fed program (probably dealing with 12+ different grass fed lines in my career). Most of them experience different qualities depending on the seasons and location, but Stemple Creek is outstanding year round. With such an extensive variety of proteins in our counters, there is not one that is more local than Stemple Creek beef. Great for the environment, the community and our customers.Dylan Potgeter, Director of Meat & Seafood Operations, Berkeley Bowl Marketplace, Berkeley, Ca

Loren Poncia and Stemple Creek Ranch are an excellent example in the the beef ranching field, leading with holistic regenerative farming systems that contribute to removal of CO2 from the earth's atmosphere. Everyday we grind fresh chuck and belly from Stemple Creek to make a some of the best grass-fed beef hamburgers around.Nate Norris, Chef de Cuisine, Zuni Café
