Our Story

Welcome to Grieb Ranch on the beautiful Central Coast of California. Come alongside us and our various activities by keeping up with the happenings this blog “The Story of Ranching on the Grieb Ranch”.

Grass-fed cattle and horses have roamed the hillsides of Grieb Ranch, in Arroyo Grande, CA, since it was established in 1878. Yoada goats make the lower hillside home while chickens peck, roam and lay eggs. In addition, fruit trees bear delicious fruit, vine-ripened vegetables provide a bountiful crop and flowers bloom decorating the landscape with bright, cheery color. Grieb Ranch is a working ranch and all these elements have enabled the Grieb family to live off products of their own land for six generations. The Grieb family continues to be dedicated to preserving the natural beauty and wildlife on the ranch that has kept the family connected to the land since 1878.

  1. Hi, Mary Grieb (who I think was Fred’s older sister?) was my great great grandmother. I have enjoyed reading this blog about ranch life in Arroyo Grande, and am so glad it continues! I would love to be in touch with this extended family, and also to learn more about the family that came over from Germany if anyone has more information.

  2. Hi there!
    Ooooooooh, I would love to come and visit you. I’m very curious, because I’m a Grieb too, coming from Germany and living in the States for a few years. 🙂
    I’m in DC right now, unfortunately a bit far away from you. But who knows? I might still make it! 😉

    With all the best wishes,

  3. We own a small horse farm near Irvine. My wife does the farming, and all my time is spent on taking care of the horses. They give me so much joy and love. It keeps me from going crazy during quarantine. I’ll keep an eye on your blog 🙂

  4. I really appreciate having the farm stand by the road! I live up Upper Lopez Canyon rd, and have used it a few times. I am trying to use it more. It is getting better and better. I generally like Hass Avocados the most and the ones you guys have are a bit different, but they are big. I also love eggs, and was so happy to see you guys were starting to carry them at the stand. I would prefer to buy locally if possible. I tried to get some the other day and you guys were out unfortunately.

    Wishing you the best, and hope for more Hass avocados and eggs! Appreciate you guys doing the stand.
