R & G Land and Cattle Co. began as a family retreat. The ranch is located in the foothills of San Benito County just 10 miles north of Pinnacles National Park. The owners are both doctors with two adult sons. The ranch was developed for the purpose of exploring nature, engaging in sports, games, reading, dance, and stimulating challenging discussions. The ranch animals are as important a part of life here as the humans. They are treated with respect, with the belief that they have as much a right to live in comfort and in as natural an environment as possible. We have 1000 acres of paths in the hills, and a wonderful picnic area at the top of the mountain. We always gravitate to this region, which can be easily reached by foot, horseback or motorized vehicle. When the ranch was purchased over 20 years ago there were 80 olive trees along the drive. We now have a full fledged organic certified olive oil operation with more than 1200 trees. We have won numerous accolades over the years, allowing guests the opportunity to taste our oil and learn about its production.
We encourage exploration of new ideas and creative endeavors. We have been visited by incredible artists and musicians and have hosted annual spirtual retreats. We love integrating art, music, movement and thought. We have shared this little piece of heaven with friends and family over the years and it became apparent that we should open up to limited groups as a special getaway from the 'hustle and bustle' of city life. Thus, our Ranch Stay was born.
