The Ranch

A commercial brussels sprouts farming operation currently exists on parts of the ranch with rich, fertile soil providing a foundation for growing abundant crops on the flat parcels. There are three homes on the property for ranch hands plus additional outbuildings, a packing shed, and a total of three wells, two of which are currently used. Farming is assisted by the warm-summer Mediterranean climate of the Santa Cruz coast, with the year’s warmest temperatures often occurring in autumn. Plant additional fruits and vegetables for a farm-to-table experience, transition to an organic operation, or use as a gentleman’s farm – possibilities abound.


Ocean Cliff Ranch is an ideal setting for horse lovers. A horse boarding operation presently exists on the property with a large main barn, stables and two riding rings. Riders can also easily access the more than 30 miles of equestrian trails next door at Wilder Ranch State Park. Its location with highway frontage makes Ocean Cliff Ranch a prime spot for expanding the horse boarding business or hosting equestrian events.


Take in the majestic sights, hear the waves, breathe the ocean air, and feel the sea breeze against your skin. Ocean Cliff Ranch is a lifestyle and can be your retreat from the hustle and bustle of it all, while being just minutes from downtown Santa Cruz and an hour from Silicon Valley. Whether it’s a weekend in a travel trailer along the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean, or a more permanent stay in the main residence, you choose how you want to spend your time at the ranch and who you want to share the experience with.

The Location

Just one hour from the buzz of Silicon Valley in laid-back Santa Cruz, this coastal ranch provides a welcome respite to create your very own farm, an unrivaled entertainment venue, or a relaxing weekend sanctuary. With room to develop and grow, envision yourself oceanside in your own personal playground.

Santa Cruz County

Located on California’s Central Coast, 65 miles south of San Francisco and 35 miles north of Monterey, Santa Cruz County offers the best of both worlds – tranquil coastal living with easy access to Silicon Valley and San Francisco. Redwood-forested mountains meet 29 miles of coastline for picturesque scenery and ample land and sea recreation options like hiking, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, canopy tours, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Visitors and residents alike also enjoy taking advantage of the 14 local state parks, wineries, museums, farmer’s markets, and the burgeoning beer and wine scene. The mild year-round climate allows for abundant local farming of berries, vegetables and wine grapes and plenty of beach days.
