Its Saturday which means the James Ranch Market and Harvest Grill will be open from 11-5pm! We look forward to seeing you. Its also Earth Day today which makes celebrating with an Inside Out Cheese Melt (made from milk that comes from grass fed, free range, happy cows) all the better! 

Thanks for the photo and the love, @peacejoyandpower!

We follow the rhythms of nature at the James Ranch. Just like the deer and elk, our cows calve every spring as the grass is greening up. This gets their milk flowing for the calf and for the cheese vat. Dairy cattle have been bred over thousands of years to produce extra milk for people, so there is plenty for the calf and for us.

The James Ranch laying hens spend the light of day cruising through the tree farm looking for insects and earthworms, dine on hand delivered local grains, take their daily dust bath in the shade of the spruce trees, drink from the clean water of the Animas River, and lay their eggs in nest boxes lined with native grasses! Living the life...

Love! If only we lived nearby. I would love to have your eggs and all your delights in my fridge! I have a question! Do hens ever lay eggs in another hen's box or are they territorial and stay out of a claimed box?

Best eggs in town. I remember living across the street and loving the honor box to buy my yummy and freshest eggs

I love James ranch and everything it stands for!!!

Would love to seem more pics of your coop set up!

James Ranch is heaven on earth 😊❤️

Thanks so much to culture magazine: the word on cheese for the beautiful photo.
