Chileno Valley Ranch
Chileno 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 Jonathan's Pride. All the apples varieties are blind taste test winners, and can be purchased from the ranch or from local markets, such as Toby's Feed Barn in Point Reyes Station, the Organic Farm stand at Marin Art and Garden, or the La Franchi Farm stand in Nicasio.

During the Summer and Fall, Plein Air Painting Workshops are given at the Ranch. The instructors are well- regarded painters from the Western United States. The painting workshop leaders for 2010 are Randy Sexton, Kim Fancher Lordier, and Paul Kratter.

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.
