Ranch events generally take place in either the mid-morning and/or late-afternoon, between meals. We will invite you to learn and explore - get your hands dirty or sit back and watch the action, either way, we want you involved to the degree you desire.
We believe Ranching is fun. Yes - you read that right. When innovation meets integrity for the purpose of producing food abundantly the result is a mind-blowing experience. We get excited about plants sprouting, cow's grazing and newborn calves bounding through the perennial grasses their ancestors grazed. Seeing chickens lay eggs, watching a piglet root out some grubs, take a horse ride. Enjoying the bounty the earth can spring forth are all hallmarks of a living ecosystem, teeming with abundance.
Our regenerative Rancher will be your guide - no question is off limits, no amount of curiosity is too much. With years of experience, our team can handle those who are farm curious up to and including those who classify themselves as homestead fanatics.
Or, perhaps you simply want to know how good food is properly raised. Or, perhaps you are nearing retirement with the dream of living off the land in the wide open spaces, but have no guide or experience. We are here to help. Our passion is regenerative production - seeing land heal and restored to it's natural, symbiotic state of equilibrium between man, animal and plant biology.
We've built the SonRise model successfully, and now want to share it with you.
