Sweet Farm O’Mine: A Biodynamic Harvest

A bounty of goodness awaits at One Gun Ranch.

By Charlotte DeFazio

It isn’t hard for clean-eating power couple Laird Hamilton and Gabby Reece to maintain their healthy living next to Malibu’s One Gun Ranch (once owned by former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum). The biodynamic farm boasts a nutritious bounty of crops while also providing an educational space for the community to experience composting, harvesting, cooking and consuming clean food. Owners Alice Bamford and Ann Eysenring published a cookbook earlier this year called One Gun Ranch Malibu: Biodynamic Recipes for Vibrant Living, in which readers will find much more than recipes. It’s a bible in a sense—a complete guidebook to a holistic way of life supported by closed-loop agriculture. Ranch visitors are bound to meet a few of the property’s assorted inhabitants like the infamous donkey, Waffle, or Lady Gaga (in goat form), but those strolling the Malibu Pier can check out One Gun’s lifestyle store and market, Ranch at the Pier. 23000 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, California; 1gunranch.com
