Visit us at our café at the Truckee Tahoe airport or on the road at your next event.




Hole in One Ranch


Located just about an hour outside of Reno, Hole in One Ranch provides their quality grass fed lamb and Heritage-bred hogs to Red Truck Cafe. Born and raised on grass pastures, with no hormones, antibiotics, animal bi-products, processed or packaged feed the sheep are able to graze nature pasture forages while the pigs enjoy room to roam and fully express all their pig-ness. Hole In One Ranch operates on a small scale providing truly local, sustainably and ethically raised meats..."It's good for the land and good for you."

Twin Peaks Orchards


Nestled in the foothills of Newcastle, CA, Twin Peaks Orchards has been providing aromatic tree ripened fruit since 1912. Vineyard quality soil, hot days and cool nights allow for rich and flavorful fruits hand picked at the peak optimum maturity. Enjoy Twin Peaks Orchards peaches, plums, nectarines (and more!) in our Red Truck Cafe Farmer's Market Salad, galette pastries and house-made chutneys. 

Tahoe Food Hub


With a network of farms within 100miles of North Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Food Hub has connected farms with local restaurants (like Red Truck Cafe!), grocers and schools increasing access to nutritious and ecologically grown food. Partnering with Tahoe Food Hub has allowed Red Truck Cafe to help support over 17 farms from our county and over 25 farms in the surrounding foothill and valley farming communities.
