Meet Farmer Bruce and his pigs at Winfield Farm

  • Winfield Farm

    1570 West Highway 246, Buellton, CA (map)

    34.619114 -120.236382

  • Nestled in the Santa Ynez River valley about three miles west of Buellton on Highway 246, Winfield Farm is dedicated to top quality produce that tastes good and is produced in harmony with nature.

    Owned and operated by Bruce and Diane Steele (Bruce does the farming, Diane does the paperwork), Bruce seeks out heirloom seeds to grow amazingly flavorful fruits and vegetables. We’ve been in operation since 2003, sharing the bounty of our garden with local restaurants as well as the community (our customers span the valley from Los Olivos to Lompoc, and some dedicated customers drive all the way from Santa Barbara and Los Angeles)

    We specialize in strictly fresh, naturally grown produce (no herbicides, pesticides, fumigants or copper), planted with care and hand picked each day. Our farm stand is open in season.

    We are now the only breeders of purebred Mangalitsa Wooly Pigs in southern California. These curly-haired “lard” hogs are sometimes mistaken for sheep. A heritage breed, Mangalitsa (also spelled Mangalitza in the UK and Mangalica in Hungary) was a favorite of Austro-Hungarian nobility in the 19th century, prized for the tender texture and ruby-red color of its meat, with a high fat content enhancing its robust flavor. By the late 1900s, however, thanks to intensive farming practices and the fashion for lean meat, Mangalitsas faced the brink of extinction.
