The Wolf Creek Ranch
The Wolf Creek Ranch sits in the mountains above Chama, New Mexico. During the summer months our yaks and cattle graze the rich grasses in the valley. Herds of elk live in the forests and meadows on the mountains. All the animals enjoy the fresh waters of the Wolf Creek that is also known for its technical fly fishing.
El Barranco is the name of a village that once sat upon these lands. My grandmother received this farm as a high school graduation present from her parents in the 1930s when money was scarce but land was abundant. Our yaks and cattle spend the winters munching the hay grown on these fields. Our grasses are irrigated from waters of acequias (ditches) that date back to the mid-19th century. El Barranco farm straddles the Chama River and Hwy 64/84.
