Featured FARMERS

At the Genesee Store we are passionate about gathering around a table with good food, libations, and lively conversation. This magical setting begins with engagement of our community farmers, ranchers, and artisans who provide the ingredients and inspiration for our culinary direction. 



Genesee Valley Ranch is located in the heart of legendary California gold country, surrounded by the Plumas National Forest. This pristine and historic mountain ranch is the Napa Valley for exquisite beef. The abundant water supply, high elevation, and protected valley provide extraordinary land to raise the world’s most prestigious cattle.

GVR offers 100% purebred Black Wagyu beef, raised on organically grown grass pastures. The result is luxurious and humanely nurtured beef which is remarkably different from its commercially raised counterpart. Like every great luxury where quality is high, the quantity is scarce. As a result, only a few customers a year can enjoy access to GVR beef.

Genesee Valley Ranch respects the land and anticipates the needs of the animals in a holistic way. The result is a balanced beef, bringing together the best of luxury and sustainability.

Indian Valley Lavender Co, Taylorsville CA

Family owned and operated, Indian Valley Lavender is nestled in along the banks of Indian Creek in the northern Sierra Nevada’s just outside the charming town of Taylorsville. Resting in the rich sandy loam provided by the creek our lavender enjoys a warm and tranquil setting befitting its nature. Plants are hand-planted, hand-cut and hand- weeded. No pesticides or herbicides used. First planting was in the Spring of 2016. Indian Valley Lavender is used for the Genesee Store’s famous Schramel Lavender Lemonade and can also be found in some of our recipes.


Massa Natural Meats, Glenn CA

Wendy Massa operates a multi-species farm with cattle, pigs, sheep, chickens, and horses raised naturally on pasture using sustainable farming practices. My farm is truly a family operation. Wendy personally take a hands-on role with every aspect of the business from breeding & raising, to customer-service, marketing & shipping. Through selective breeding and careful range management, she is uniquely creating a group of animals that have become a healthy and sustainable alternative to factory farm practices. She did this for a love of the lifestyle, the outdoors, the animals, and to support my family's ancestral diet by producing quality natural meats that you just can’t find in a store.

Stay tuned for so many more to come!
