Stacey & Frank Gambonini

Gambonioni Family Ranch


Frank Gambonini grew up on his family's dairy ranch off Lakeville Highway in Petaluma; Stacey grew up on the south side of Chicago. They met in 1991 and married in 1994. They have three daughters, all of whom are pursuing agriculture as a career. At one point the Gambonini’s had 600 cows on the ranch and Frank knew every single cow’s name, date of birth, and pedigree. In 2019 they decided to sell the dairy cows and chart a new course, starting with agricultural tourism, rebuilding their 1924 hay barn as an agricultural event venue and plans to plant a vineyard and other crops. Here’s their story.
