Rancho Grande is a 200 acre, one of a kind off the grid and fully sustainable preserve located in a secluded and private valley 3,500 feet above sea level. A private “island” completely surrounded by the mountains of the Los Padres National Forest. Home to historic century old log cabins that still provide shelter surrounded by majestic hills, mature trees, running creeks and lakes naturally stocked with local fish and turtles. Rancho Grande homes an eclectic family of alpacas, goats, lambs, chickens, horses, cows, parrots, pigs, dogs, cats and humans, all of whom live in peace with the forest, the surrounding communities and the abundant natural wildlife that also call Rancho Grande their home.
During the fire Rancho Grande was surrounded by flames.
