Welcome to Chileno Valley Ranch - The home of Natural Beef, Organic Apples and Plein Air Art Wokshops

Please note that we no longer run a Bed and Breakfast

hileno Valley Ranch, the home of Mike and Sally Gale, is primarily a grass-fed beef ranch. About 600 acres of beautiful hilly coastal Marin grassland supports a herd of 100 Angus cows/calf pairs. Beef is sold directly to families, with no middleman.  The animals are humanely raised and spend their whole lives on the Ranch. Additionally, great care is taken to protect and preserve the creeks, fish, birds,and native plants and animals on the Ranch.

Mike and Sally also have an organic apples orchard, with varieties such as Orin, Pinova, Molly's Delicious and Jonagold. All the apples varieties are blind taste test winners, and can be purchased from the ranch during U-Pick days.

As Chileno Valley and the Ranch are known for their spectacular vistas and charm, a limited number of Weddings are held at the Ranch during the Summer months. Mike and Sally consider each wedding to be a unique event, and encourage couples to create their own setting and program.

Sally Gale is also a plein air painter. Her work can be purchased directly from the Ranch, and through yearly Shows. Known for Ranch Scenes, Sally will honor Commission Requests.

Our visitors seem to enjoy the fact that this was once a grand place that was neglected over a long period of time, but has now been brought back to life in every aspect, that is, the house is once again a grand house full of fine furniture; the fences, barns and livestock are improving all the time; and the creek, once denuded of vegetation, now teems with birds and soon will be the spawning ground it once was for both steelhead and salmon.
