After farming in the Capay Valley for six years, the Robertsons felt priced out of the local land market. In 2017, their solution was found in Siskiyou County. By combining a FarmLink mortgage loan with a loan from the USDA Farm Service Agency, they were able to purchase a 50-acre ranch and residence in Edgewood. Skyelark Ranch offers grass-fed lamb, pastured pork, eggs, and poultry through restaurants, retail outlets and directly to consumers who want a high standard of healthy, local, and sustainably produced meats. The meats are offered as individual cuts at farmers markets, and people can pre-order larger quantities. Alexis and Gillies are also innovating with value-added products including yarn and sheepskins. For people who value local foods in their region, they are asset, producing livestock at a small scale.
