Work Work Work
Growing up in suburbia, I have acquired many life skills, but none of them prepared me for work on a ranch. The first thing my family learned about ranch life is: it starts at the crack of dawn, or sometimes before dawn, or sometimes in the middle of the night. The second thing we learned is: there is no such thing as a day off. Our final lesson was the realization that at the ranch you spend time outside, lots of time outside, getting dirty, sun burned and tired. (really tired, like how do people live like this, I want to die, tired) We developed a new appreciation for farming and ranching families and they opened up a whole new fascinating world for us! We have met so many wonderful, beautiful and inspirational people since we started our journey a decade ago. My youngest daughter benefited the most by spending her summers at the ranch from the age of 11 to 18. Those early summers were without phone service, internet or television. I wish my older two could have experienced that during their early teen years. They have been able to reconnect with family and learn many things that were once common knowledge but have been lost to most of the youth of today. We want to share this knowledge and introduce you to some of these wonderful people through the pages of this website, so please drop by and visit us often for updates!
