Adobe Creek Ranch

The Adobe Creek Ranch is a family run, family

owned ranch, established in 1942. Originally,

the ranch raised sheep with a few cows. Today

it raises grass fed Black Angus Cattle, about 50

head a year on 475 acres in Kelseyville, CA. It

also raises its own hay. This past year the ranch

sold all 51 pairs of cows and calves at auction to

Texans. The ranch has no irrigation, it is all dry

feed, but it is self-sufficient and preserves the

family heritage. Mike Ananos, the patriarch,

shares his vision of the ranch as his children

continue to follow the dream to develop the

property with irrigation. Daughter, Michelle, and

son-in-law Ryan Raabe are the new generation

to work and manage the Ranch.


Mike is a member as well as sponsor for CAF.

He contributes to the fish hatchery because he

feels it is an excellent way to sustain the fish.
