We kick off our 2024 series with a long time friend, colleague, entrepreneur and rising reality-television superstar, Elizabeth Poett from the esteemed Rancho San Julian on the southern end of California’s central coast. Her 14,000 acre, seven-generation cattle ranch has seen a lot over its nearly 200 year family history, and recently, you too may have seen a lot of Rancho San Julian on Magnolia Network’s new series, Ranch to Table. In today’s episode, we chat with Elizabeth’s about her latest pursuits including the series itself, her new cookbook, and most importantly, how her lifelong investments in food, ranching, and farming are key strategies to bringing community together, building relationships, and supporting local economies. Listen in as we catch up, talk shop (ranch), and share some good laughs.


Elizabeth Poett is a seventh-generation cattle rancher, author of the bestselling cookbook The Ranch Table, and star-host of the cooking and lifestyle show Ranch to Table, one of the founding shows of the Magnolia Network. Elizabeth was born and raised on Rancho San Julian, her family’s historic 14,000-acre cattle ranch on California’s Central Coast. In 2007, Elizabeth started Rancho San Julian Beef, a business selling her family’s ranch-raised, grass-fed beef directly to chefs and consumers. Her meats quickly became popular with California cooks and local chefs and have been served at restaurants across California. Elizabeth also is the author of the blog The Ranch Table and hosts a number of Ranch Table events throughout the year—cooking workshops, educational events, and intimate farm-to-table meals.


A published cookbook author, homegrown TV chef, rancher, and so much more.
