The Future of Farm to Table: Loren and Lisa Poncia of Stemple Creek Ranch

Change is in the air. We’ve felt it coming for years and we see it happening before our eyes in this moment. Today’s buzzwords were the dreams of innovators from decades past. And innovation can be found everywhere.

Today we chat with Loren and Lisa Poncia, founders of Stemple Creek Ranch. Stemple Creek is not only famous for their regenerative agricultural practices but they’re also the guys supplying protein to every Michelin rated restaurant in the Bay area.

In our conversation we talk about the path to carbon neutrality, the future of ranching and how, despite a global pandemic, 2020 was a profitable year for the ranch.
