Our Family Cattle Ranch
Yolo Land & Cattle Co.
Nestled in the Blue Ridge Hills of Western Yolo County, California, is the headquarters of a vibrant working cattle ranch.
Established in 1976, Yolo Land & Cattle Co. resulted from the vision of family patriarch Henry H. Stone and his wife Suzanne. The original partnership operated on numerous ranches throughout California and Nevada, until Henry acquired sole interest in 1983. As the geneticist in the family, Henry utilized many types of cattle breeds over the years before settling on a Black Angus & Hereford cross as the optimum range cow. While most folks would have long retired, Henry is still going strong. Recently, he started a successful purebred Angus operation, which produces seed-stock for the commercial operation.
Sons Scott and Casey eventually joined their father to complete the present-day partnership. Today, all family members are involved, and the ranch remains a true family business.
Scott manages the commercial cattle operation, which produces grass-fed natural Angus beef on multiple ranches. Scott’s wife Karen manages the direct marketing and distribution of the natural grass-fed beef. They also have a successful ag real estate company, California Agricultural Properties, Inc.
Although they are in school and college, all of the Stone children enjoy participating in ranch activities. We feel blessed to have our children growing up and working beside us in a lifestyle that is healthy and rewarding.
