What you'll do...
Excite Your Senses' as we stroll down the concrete drive and I explain the importance and management of productive pastures. The ranch manages the pastures with a rotational grazing system, so keep your eye out for the herd.
Charlie wants visitors to experience
the sights and smells of the farm
while discussing the cattle health,
genetics and nutrient requirements
There are many photo opportunities. In addition, you will see many conservation practices used to protect the farms resources, water quality and environment.
Shop at our Farm Store and consider grilling out while you relax in our picnic area enjoying the beautiful views of the mountains. (fees apply)
