Operating since 1861, Rancho Llano Seco is an original and intact Mexican land grant parcel on the banks of the Sacramento River that has been in Charlie Thieriot’s family for six generations. Their purpose is to preserve the richness of 17,000 acres of wild California, while maintaining gentle land stewardship and a holistic approach to ranching. Llano Seco responsibly raises pigs and cattle and produces heirloom beans and ancient grains.
