At Baba Small Batch, we believe that our first responsibility is to the people who enjoy our products. This responsibility starts with growing and sourcing the highest quality ingredients, which are then hand-crafted into the finest quality products. We respect the environment from the ground up, from the planting of our garbanzo beans to the organic and farm fresh ingredients we purchase, to the production and delivery of our various products. Ultimately, we seek to one day to be fully sustainable in all of our operations with the goal of replenishing the earth and its natural resources to the best of our ability.
Naturally, as our name implies, we are first and foremost about cheese. We currently carry about 120 different types of cheese sourced from all over the world. It’s a tough job tasting them all, but we’ve never shied away from a challenge! We cut each one fresh to order, ensuring you get the most delicious cheeses in town. In addition to cheese, we also stock a large array of cured meats. From Spanish Jamon Iberico, to Mole Salame from Salumi Artisan Cured Meats in Seattle, to our own house-cured Pancetta, we are continually searching for outstanding cured meats that are made by small, sustainably minded makers
Dare 2 Dream Farms is a small, family owned and operated farm located on forty acres just west of the town of Lompoc, California. The farm was founded on our steadfast beliefs that the food which nourishes our bodies should come from local, natural, sustainable, and humane sources. Our laying hens are pastured in fields of rye grass, buckwheat, flax, clover, and sunflowers so they have an abundance of raw nutrients to forage for and lots of land, trees, and shrubs to play in. Our coops are sustainable and handcrafted for safe and humane backyard chicken keeping. Our garden grows pesticide and herbicide free in beautiful no till beds.
Fresh, cold-pressed, extra virgin California olive oils are pungent and hearty in flavor. We always note the look on people’s faces when they take their first sniff, then a little sip. Eyes light up with pleasure and surprise at their first encounter with this aromatic oil, then a smile crosses their faces as the oil leaves traces of peppery taste on the tongue as it passes down the throat.
Most people in this country don’t know about olive oil, and generally use tasteless oil varieties or olive oil off the grocery shelf. They are universally surprised at how delicious this oil is. Now they know what real olive oil tastes like…and it’s made right here by California olive oil producers.
We have a passion for coffee. This involves an intimate understanding of the beans themselves and the equipment used to roast them. The process takes time and skill based on years of roasting experience. Timing, temperature and chemical composition changes within the beans are just a few of the aspects our Roastmasters continually monitor. We choose to roast our beans “to order” in our Santa Barbara roastery rather than mass producing batches like larger chains do. The result is well worth it. This process defines the quality and freshness of our coffee. To compromise this process would compromise the product.

Nestled in the heart of Santa Barbara County, Rancho San Julian has the distinction of being one of the last, great Spanish-Mexican land grants that remains in the family of the original grantee.
A majestic oasis of old California, the Rancho has retained its natural beauty and the functionality of its historic buildings, while enhancing its vital agricultural operations. Wildlife thrive in thick oak forests, and cattle roam the rolling hills, vast pastures, and steep arroyos that comprise Rancho San Julian’s 13,000 acres. We hope you will appreciate the beauty and wonder of Rancho San Julian as much as we do.
