About Five Marys Farms

Mary and Brian Heffernan always dreamed of moving to the country to ranch and raise “free-range kids” in the dirt and sunshine. They both have deep agriculture roots and a passion for small town, small business and family-centered food. So when the opportunity to purchase the historic Sharps Gulch Ranch came along in 2013, Mary and Brian knew they’d found their land. With eyes on a new adventure and California soil in their souls, they left the Bay Area suburbs (and successful businesses as lawyer/business owners) and took their four spunky girls to Siskiyou county.

Five Marys Farms is named after Mary and the four Heffernan daughters (all named Mary after grandmothers and aunts on both sides of the family). MaryFrances or “Francie” is 8 and loves dogs and veterinary aspects of the ranch, MaryMarjorie or “Maisie” is 6 and can usually be found in her ranch clothes working next to her dad, MaryJane or “JJ” is 4 and will usually be seen in seven different outfits over the course of the day and MaryTeresa or “Tessa, aka Tiny” is 3 and the spunky but tough baby of the family. The FIVE MARYS  are proud to be working the ranch everyday keeping up with the leader of their pack, Heff.

Mary and Brian believe that good things take time, from restoring old ranch homes to raising cattle. As they start a new chapter, this ever-adventuring family can’t wait to share stories of everyday farm life, good food and- as always- hard work.

Brian and Mary’s families both are deeply rooted in California agriculture and appreciate the dedication to and the rewards of working the land. Ancestors from Mary’s side were early pioneers and settlers in California at the time of the gold rush and farmed for generations in the Pajaro Valley. Brian’s ancestors were farmers and stewards of the land as well, a draw that brought his father back to farming in Imperial County and then Tehama County growing almonds, walnuts and prunes. Brian spent many years as a lawyer before returning to his roots with his wife to raise cattle, hay and his four children in the mountains of Siskiyou County. They are proud of their agricultural heritage and proud to bring some of the best products possible to your table.
