Description and products

Founded by John C. Harris in 1937, the Harris Ranch Beef Company (now operated by Jack Harris' son John) also operates an inn and restaurant, and breeds thoroughbred horses.[1] Overall, the operation has more than 400 employees.[2]

At over 800 acres (320 ha) and with a population of over 100,000 cattle,[3] and hundereds harvested daily, the ranch is the largest on the West Coast. It is also among the largest (when including density), in the United States. Known to travelers for a "ripe, tangy odor",[4] the ranch is nicknamed "Cowschwitz".[3][5] It supplies the hamburger meat for the In-N-Out chain, and also distributes through grocery stores nationwide.[2] Approximately 14,000 acres (5,700 ha) are devoted to garlic, broccoli, pomegranates, and tomatoes, among 35 types of fruits and vegetables.[3]

The restaurant was targeted to local farmers when it opened in 1977, but later became popular due to its location on a busy highway midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. As of 2008 the restaurant is the 57th busiest in the United States and sixth busiest in California based on gross receipts.[2] A 150-room luxury motel was added in 1987.[3]

Location

Harris Ranch Inn

Harris Ranch is notable for being located almost precisely at the half-way mileage point between Los Angeles and San Francisco and Los Angeles and Sacramento. Given the location and its ease of recognition from Interstate Highway 5 it is a useful landmark when driving between the two cities.[6]
