Mountain Ranch Musings

Our Daughter, Gabriela, Wrote This About Our Wolf Creek Ranch.

Within the sprawling mountains of New Mexico lies a bustling ranch filled with cattle that graze lazily on green grass, mischievous yaks that look for open gates, colorful horses who run down the pasture fences, and, of course, the majestic wildlife that live as the groundskeepers for the blooming ecosystem. Be it a lumbering black bear, an elegant elk, or a scampering squirrel, the forest is alive with beautiful creatures.

A hike through the forest will show all the promised flora and fauna. A variety of mushrooms line the elk-made trails and flowers of all colors bloom in the summertime sun. The trails are narrow and often built on steep hills–elk can walk up anything! Despite many of them being built on sheer slopes, horses rarely have trouble following them; A favorite pastime for many is trail riding through these green pine and aspen forests. Even in autumn and winter, when aspens and cottonwoods lose their leaves, the evergreens of New Mexico stay full and make for shelter from heavy snows and rains.

When not hiking or riding through the woods, warm days call for a tromp in the nearby creek. The creek, filled with freshwater from the snow-tipped mountains, provides cool, freshwater, not only for people and land animals, but for trout, chubs, and salmon. Fishing is a popular sport here, pertaining to the quality and quantity of fishes, and, of course, the gorgeous scenery surrounding the banks.

In short, the possibilities here for nature lovers are endless, whether you appreciate long scenic hikes, horseback rides, or fishing, or enjoy spending the day hunting for mushrooms and flowers.

Spiritual Safety

Spiritual Safety

It's December 19, 2022. We haven't had much snow yet. I can still drive to our cabin on the Wolf Creek Ranch, up in the mountains. This is the latest in the year I've been able to do that. The other night it got down to -5 F outside, 26 F inside the cabin. No furnace. No heat until I got out of bed and made a fire in the wood stove.

Aldo Leopold was right. There's spiritual safety in raising food and cutting firewood.

New Online Store

New Online Store

We have brought a new online store into the world. 

Thanks to our customers, and to our staff, and our whole community, our business outgrew our previous online store. We have launched a new store that supports our national shipping, regional delivery, and integrates with our brick-and-mortar sales and pre-order pickup locations.

We know there will be warts and bugs. That's why you can find email and phone information on every page. If something isn't working well for you when you, reach out to us. It's not you, it's us. We'll get you what you want and we'll fix the store so it works well going forward.

Things to look forward to:

  • Regular and seasonal specials.
  • Consistent inventory, so when you order you know what you'll get.
  • Simpler ordering - order and pay at the same time.
  • Multiple pickup locations - order online, pick up in person
  • Multiple sales locations - when you need some yak jerky RIGHT NOW!
  • Recipes from some chefs that love our meat. Sometimes with tied in with the specials.
  • Videos, so you can vicariously enjoy the mountain life that our animals enjoy in real life.
  • Special opportunities. (Want to spend a weekend learning to butcher your own animal? We'll be announcing that opportunity soon.)
