After a decade-long hiatus, Marin schools add local, grass-fed beef to their menus

April 29, 2019

But it wasn’t until recently that beef became a part of the conversation again. Loren and Lisa Poncia have two children in the Novato district. They also happen to be the fourth-generation owners of Stemple Creek Ranch near Tomales, California. Their beef is free-range, grass-fed, and free of artificial hormones and antibiotics. The cattle grazes on hundreds of acres of Marin County land protected by the Marin Agricultural Land Trust.
