A lot is going on around the ranch.  New mama sheep and their babies have arrived and now call the pen in our guest garden home.  Our mamas goats are pregnant.  Our community garden is up and running. 



Finally the rain has come and it looks like it is staying for the next two weeks.  On and off, of course, but we will take what we can get!

April 20th through the 24th is still available for Spring Break bookings!
