Long Meadow Ranch: The story of Long Meadow Ranch began in the late 1800’s. President Ulysses S. Grant signed a land patent granting 640 acres to Civil War veteran E.J. Church, which became the Long Meadow Ranch. The property thrived with vineyards, apple orchards, olive groves, hay and goat milk dairy until farming fell dormant during prohibition. The property became swallowed up by the encroaching forest until Ted and Laddie Hall bought the property in 1989. They carefully breathed life back into the land and replanted the vineyards and orchards as you see them today. Long Meadow Ranch farms Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.
The ranch is also home to the oldest olive orchards in Napa Valley, dating back to the 1870’s. Abandoned for years, these trees were hidden by dense forest until Ted and Chris Hall discovered them while exploring the property in the 1990’s. They have planted additional groves using Italian cultivars Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino and Moraiolo for their Napa Valley Select olive oil.
Long Meadow Ranch is also the proud owner of one of the largest folds of Highland Cattle in California, a breed that has lived for centuries in the rugged, remote Scottish Highlands, where extremely harsh conditions led to natural selection of this fine animal. Two-hundred and fifty strong, these pasture-raised cattle are grass-fed, hormone-, antibiotic- and chemical-free, and are some of the oldest bloodlines in the country—all factors that contribute to their outstanding flavor.
