Whether you're from the city, an aspiring homesteader, this unique ranch stay offers a unique opportunity to learn and participate in various aspects of farm life. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect and how you can make the most out of your stay:
1. Planning Your Ranch Agenda

Preparation Phase: Start planning your activities well in advance. Sign up for your specific activities anywhere from 6 months to 2 weeks prior to your arrival. This can be done via email or text once your reservation is complete. Planning early ensures you can secure spots in popular activities and allows the ranch staff to prepare adequately.

Activity Selection: Consider your interests and goals for the stay

Animal Care: Chores N' Tour teaches about animal husbandry, feeding, and care for livestock such as cows, chickens, horses, alpacas, peacocks, turkeys, goats, and pigs. Meet some of the farm rescued animals and learn about the industries that they originated from. 
Crop Cultivation: Participate in harvesting herbs, fresh flowers or blackberries (June-Sept)
Specialty Experiences: Check out other activities like canvas painting under the old oak tree, Brush N' Bond horse grooming and unique Horse Whispering lessons

2. Daily Routine on the Farm

Mornings: Wake up to the serene sights and sounds of the farm. Sip a freshly made cup of coffee on the porch while watching the animals next to your accommodation. Plan to see farm chores happening, and lessons being given  

Hands-On Experience: Roll up your sleeves and get ready to immerse yourself in farm life. Depending on your chosen activities, you might be feeding breakfast to 20+ farm animals or meeting up with Shelley for ranch activities. This hands-on approach not only teaches you practical skills but also connects you deeply with the agricultural environment.

3. Flexibility and Additional Activities


Free Overnight Guest Activities: Keep your eyes peeled in our FREE Indoor scavenger hunt! Find all the farm animals and win a prize! If you have a good memory, try the Name Challenge by reciting every animal name back to Shelley!

Adding Activities: Throughout your stay, you may discover new interests or wish to delve deeper into certain topics or experiences. Additional activities can often be added during your stay, subject to availability and prior approval from ranch staff.

Learning Opportunities: Take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions and learn from an experienced farmer. Enjoy insights into farming practices, the challenges and rewards of farm life, and tips for starting your own homestead if that's your goal. Hear Shelley's personal story of how Cowtown unexpectedly came to be. 

4. Takeaways from Your Ranch Stay

New Skills and Knowledge: By the end of your ranch stay, you'll likely have gained practical skills and knowledge about various aspects of ranching. This experience can be invaluable. 

Memorable Experience: Beyond the educational aspect, a ranch stay often leaves a lasting impression due to its tranquility, connection with nature, and the opportunity to disconnect from everyday life.
