What they offer:

RSFFMDaLeRanchchickenFARM-FRESH MEAT.  Our animals are raised in open areas, not cramped into small containers or pens.  No Contained Area Farming Operations (CAFO’s) OR feed lots here!  We feed no hormones, steroids, incremental antibiotics or GMO’s.  All the animals get lots of fresh veggies and fruits, in addition to grass, and our proprietary feed blends.

GRASS-FED BEEF AND LAMB:  At Farmer’s Markets, most cuts are available for pickup or order for delivery at a subsequent market.  Quarter, half and full sides of beef are available by advance order.  In addition to individual cuts of lamb, we offer half and whole sides.

PIGS: NO added hormones or steroids…just delicious, small farm-raised, eating loads of local fruit, vegetables, and supplemented with a proprietary feed and grass.  Various mixed breeds, sized from weaners, to roasters for your backyard BBQ and freezer pack size.
CHICKENS:  Various tasty breeds, mostly brown egg layers, with a few “Easter” eggers (pale pink to greenish/blue eggs).  Meat chickens are delicious, juicy and a very popular item – naturally pastured birds scratching out a living doing what chickens love to do!  They love veggies too!
ROOSTERS are also available by pre-order for making the absolute best broth or coq au vin.RSFFMDaLe Ranch fowl
OTHER FOWL:  Turkey, duck, pheasant, quail, chukar partridge and geese are grown both on the farm and at several other (more predator-free) farms.
EGGS:  Chicken, duck, quail, goose, chukar and guinea fowl eggs are available for pickup at the Farmer’s Markets, when in season.  Our farm-fresh eggs are supreme!

The RSF Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…
Rolled Spinach and White Cheddar Omelet

RSFFM Rolled Spinach OmletteYou don’t have to stand over the stove and make individual omelets with this simple recipe adapted from a Martha Stewart favorite!

What You Will Need and Where to Find it:

  • Olive oil, for pan (Thyme of Essence)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 8 large eggs (Da-Le Ranch)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Garlic Cayenne Seed Salt (Be Runa)
  • 2 bunches fresh spinach, sauteed in water (Sage Mountain)
  • 1 1/2 cups white cheddar (6 ounces) (Franks Cheeses)


To Prepare:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a 10-by-15-inch rimmed baking sheet or jelly-roll pan with oil. Line bottom of pan with parchment, leaving a 1-inch overhang on the two shorter sides. Brush parchment with oil.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together milk and flour. Add eggs, mustard, 1 teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper; whisk to combine. Pour into pan. Sprinkle spinach over top in an even layer.
  3. Bake until edges of omelet are set, 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheddar; bake until cheese has melted, 2 to 4 minutes. Beginning at one shorter end, lift parchment, and roll up omelet tightly, peeling back parchment as you go. Slice and serve.

Buon Appetito!

Sweep Sweet “Cricket” Off Her Furry Feet!

Helen Woodward Animal Center introduces Cricket looking for a forever home

  cricket_03 cricket_01

Meet Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Pet-of-the-Week, Cricket! Cricket is a quiet 6-month old Dachshund blend who doesn’t quite know what to make of the world at her young age. She has lived with her siblings her whole life and will need a loving family to introduce her to the world and show her how much fun it can be! She loves to be scooped up and snuggled close. Sweep her off her furry feet today and she’ll return the favor every day!

Cricket is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. She has been altered and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations.  Her adoption fee is $399, and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, she is micro chipped for identification.  As an added bonus, she also comes with two free passes to Sea World!

Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 6pm; Fridays from noon to 7pm; Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing).”
