Through the decades we’ve raised five children and 11 grandchildren, while growing our farm from alfalfa and small grains to a local destination hot spot complete with organic produce, the first corn maze in the West, and shelves with homemade jams, breads, and canned goods.
We are a certified organic farm and want to grow nutritious food for our family and yours. We bring local produce to you in many Northern Nevada locations through farmers’ markets, our produce stand, and through the Great Basin Basket Community Supported Agriculture.
Our hope is that by opening our farm gate, visitors of Lattin Farms will reconnect with the earth, learn a little about the importance of agriculture and how their food is grown. Our most important goal is for you to have some fun with your loved ones.

Superior quality beef on a family friendly budget.
We are enthusiastic and thrilled to share Sanford Ranch’s delicious beef to our customers. Our family-owned and operated ranch is located in the agriculture community of Fallon, Nevada. We are a family team, working side by side on our ranch where our meat products are raised locally, without the use of growth hormones, steroids, growth-promoting antibiotics, fillers, added coloring etc., and with access to pasture for their entire life. We feel this provides ultra-fresh and wholesome food to share with your family. Our focus is to provide superior quality beef on a family-friendly budget. We understand the desire to feed your family high-quality, nutritious meat without breaking the bank.
Ranching has become a tradition in our family with three generations involved! Sanford Ranch started in 1996 with “Big D”, “Gerbil”, and their two sons raising Black Angus Beef in the Northern Nevada area. “Big D” earned his name since we tease him about his size and D for Dad, but now most days he mostly goes by Grandpa. “Gerbil” earned her name since she is always on the move, small and inquisitive, but she enjoys being called “grammy grammy grammy” now.
Big D and Gerbil’s sons, Mike and Joe, both went away for school but came back to ranching with their own families in tow! Mike’s wife, Dani, is from Reno and her days are spent wrangling children, organizing steaks, washing jeans, and making buffets for the ranch crew. Joe met Chelsea unexpectedly in Las Vegas. She met and fell in love with a rugged cowboy. Now she lives in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch and is always chipping dried manure from her high heels and taking their son and daughter on tractor rides.
Thank you for supporting local agriculture and we look forward to sharing a steak with you!
