A Holistically Managed Cattle Ranch
The Home Ranch
A Private FAMILY Ranch ~ CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC
The legendary Home Ranch, historically run as a guest ranch, is now a private family ranch and is CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. Located 17 miles from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the ranch is based in the heart of Elk River Valley, beside the banks of the wild and scenic Elk River, with the storybook crest of Hahn’s Peak to the North, the majestic peaks of the Mount Zirkel Wilderness to the East, and the purple mountain majesty of the Sand Mountains to its West.
The ranch is not taking reservations or public visits at this time. Check back for future news and updates.
New Growth ~
The Farm Comes Alive
The Farm at Home Ranch is developing a comprehensive production farming program to help nourish and feed the North Routt and Steamboat Springs communities and visitors. The team of passionate farmers aims to expand your palate and engage your taste buds with dozens of new varieties of greens, roots, squash, beans, tomatoes, peppers, and much more. The Farm Stand in Clark opened in 2020, and will expand in 2023 to include sustainably raised beef and eggs, and we will start selling our products at the Steamboat Springs Farmers Market on Saturdays. We are also excited to work with local chefs and restaurants to offer local and dynamic food for their menus.
~ Holistic Range Management ~
Holistic Management is an ecologically minded approach to ranching that helps land managers, farmers, ranchers, and environmentalists develop strategies for managing herds of domestic horses and livestock. This is based on a practice that mimics ancient wild herds in a manner that heals degraded soils, improves ecosystem function, and builds biodiversity in grasslands. Under the leadership of ranch manager Michael Moon, the Home Ranch is practicing this science in managing its land and livestock.
