Help Us – Our Wish List

Wish List

Spring and summer have come and gone so quickly   With that comes a lot of work getting the ranch ready for the summer programs.  More supplies need to be purchased, programs and events planned and funded etc.   Take a look and see where you can volunteer your time and talent and financially give […]


What a day at the ranch will look like…

Please be on time and come ready to work on the farm.  Dress appropriately for farm work and the weather!  You might want to bring a change of clothes to go home in – just in case you need them.

Thinking about you and what you might need…. we prepared a donation room of cowboy boots, socks,  jeans etc.    Hopefully we will be able to provide you with what you may need for the day if you do not have ranch-appropriate clothing and boots.

Keep in mind that we have a schedule to follow with our volunteers. Starting on time and ending on time is critical for the respect of the staff, volunteers and their families – as well as our neighbors! Contact us for remaining 2014 hours!
