Welcome to the Santa Fe Ranch and the Paula and Cabot Sedgwick Family Foundation!
The Paula and Cabot Sedgwick Family Foundation, dba The Santa Fe Ranch, is dedicated to environmental conservation and preservation, to education and to agriculture in the vigorous effort to promote healthy, active and conscious living in Santa Cruz County and beyond.
The Santa Fe Ranch consists of 3,300 acres of valleys, mesas, mountains and river bottom alongside approximately one mile of the Santa Cruz River.
For many years the Santa Fe was owned by the Sedgwick family who operated a cattle ranch there. Today, thanks to the generosity and vision of Paula and Cabot Sedgwick, the Santa Fe continues to operate as a cattle ranch, but now it is also dedicated to advancing agricultural and environmental research and to providing active, hands-on, educational, out-of-doors opportunities to community members.
