Kay and David James raised their family of five children in this rural atmosphere, enriched with the love of the land, animals, plants, and family. Fifteen years ago, the adult children began migrating back to the ranch seeking the joy of rearing their families here and utilizing and improving this land.

Today, four different agriculturally based enterprises are flourishing at James Ranch. The family has a quality of life goal that dictates the ranch remain in agriculture as a lifestyle preference for the families and open space for the community.

A significant contributor to family harmony and synergism is their disciplined quarterly family meetings.

Here, aspects of the respective enterprises are discussed as well as the overall running of the James Ranch.

Grand children are included in these discussions. Any subtle incongruity is immediately brought out and resolved harmoniously.
