Rancho Llano Seco pork on the menu at Kitchen Door

Rancho Llano Seco

Kitchen Door now has Rancho Llano Seco pork on its menu — the pigs are a cross of Duroc, Yorkshire and Landrace breeds and are fed GMO-free vegetarian grains and legumes, 90 percent of which are grown on the dry-land fields within a few miles of the barns. Pigs are confinement-free, raised in deep-bedded hoop barns with continual access to large open air pastures. The pigs are a “zero-waste” community, as all bedding is composted and applied to Rancho pastures. Rancho Llano Seco was incorporated in 1861 and has a rich history of balancing agriculture, live stock husbandry and conservation In its 6th generation of gentle land stewardship, the Thieriot family continues to explore and preserve Llano Seco’s richness, and it’s one of the last Mexican land grant properties that remains intact.
