The Ranch

An expansive gated cow paddock features a fold of 30+ Scottish Highland cattle – the oldest registered breed in the world – known for its docile and friendly temperament and used in the biodynamic farming process employed by the ranch, creating a closed, regenerative practice made famous by Rudolph Steiner.

Equestrian

The Equestrian facility highlights include a covered 17 stall, cedar lined mare barn and covered indoor arena with 12 fully lined stalls including an overhead sprinkler system, electricity and stadium seating. An additional fenced and professionally footed outdoor arena, hay barn, and several fenced pastures provide everything a horse lover needs.
