The Skyelark Story
Skyelark Ranch is operated as a family business and partnership by Alexis and Gillies Robertson with varied amounts of help and hindrance from our Border Collies, Skye and Peat.
Nestled between two ridges of Northern California’s Coast Range, the Capay Valley is a twenty-mile oasis of almond orchards, vineyards, cattle ranches, and several well-established organic, and small-scale family farms. Among those, Skyelark Ranch has grown from the innovation and determination of its founders Alexis and Gillies Robertson. After years of working in environmental management and following their passion for a more sustainable form of livestock production, Gillies and Alexis are delighted to be able to finally introduce you to Skyelark Ranch.
At Skyelark Ranch, our goal is to raise livestock in a way that is both humane and in balance with our land, our community, and our surroundings. Our animals are raised on grass, without the use of chemicals, growth hormones, or antibiotics, and in tune with the seasons of our Mediterranean climate. On a seasonal basis, we offer grass-fed lamb, pastured chicken, and pork for pre-order through our website, or, please feel free to contact us directly to find out what’s available now.
