Ranch & Coast was first established in 1983 as an exclusive Rancho Santa Fe community publication, catering to the needs of one of the most affluent zip codes in the United States. In 1995, Bob Stefanko and Collette Murphy came on board to lend their design and production expertise, and just three years later, in 1998, they purchased Ranch & Coast magazine. Since then, the publication’s reach and coverage have expanded to add other areas of affluence including South Carlsbad, Olivenhain, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Carmel Valley, Santaluz, and La Jolla — all in addition to the most complete saturation of Rancho Santa Fe available. Ranch & Coast magazine is also offered amongst other premier magazines on the shelves of upscale grocery retailers including Whole Foods, Cardiff Seaside Market, and Harvest Ranch Market, and is in-room at several luxury hotels including Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, L'Auberge Del Mar, and Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, to name but a few.
Ranch & Coast magazine’s vibrant and interesting editorial covers a diverse array of topics important to our readers’ lifestyles. Galas, arts and culture, philanthropy, personalities, dining, travel and leisure, wealth, fashion, home environment, health, beauty, and physical fitness — every month the editors keep readers informed about what’s happening in their world.
