5 North: Esparto, in Capay Vally, Manas Ranch Meat Market


Manas Ranch Meat Market  26797 Hwy. 16, Esparto, in Capay Valley, (530) 787-1740.  All the meats sold here are fresh and local, including housemade sausages (Grandma's recipe is used for chorizo).  Pies are made in the kitchen from fruit grown on the farm.  Their own fruit jams are also made on site, and the no-sugar versions just might be even tastier than the regular sugar-added version that is also available. 
          Try to be here in peach season, because their Manas Ranch claims to have “the best peaches in the West” and sells them fresh, just down the road a spell at #25838 Road 21A.  Apricots, cherries, and apples, too.  And without using insecticides.
