The Swanton Pacific Ranch is a 3,200 acre educational and research facility that is part of California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo's (Cal Poly) College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences.

The Ranch was donated to Cal Poly in 1993 by the late Al Smith, a Cal Poly graduate and founder of Orchard Supply Hardware, who's goal is to have the Ranch be maintained as a working ranch and used exclusively for agriculture, recreational, educational purposes.
