Prather Ranch SF Ferry Building

Sustainable, organic meat company 's new home in the Ferry Building read more...

One of the very few certified humane ranches in California, Prather Ranch is a  sustainable, organic meat company with a philosophy of “a deep understanding of the importance of low stress cattle handling, responsible stewardship of the land and a desire to provide a stable and satisfying life for those who work on the ranch.” Doug Stonebreaker and Steve McCarthy  asked us to design the expansion of their popular retail meat shop, Prather Ranch Meat Co. in the SF Ferry Building. Their corner, double sized, storefront space includes an expanded meat counter,  an old-fashioned hot dog cart , and a full commercial kitchen. The wood is sourced from their own Bella Vista Ranch, from an 1800’s barn, complete with bullet and woodpecker holes.  The custom light fixtures are wrapped with vintage “diamond point” barbed wire, also from the ranch.
