Here on the farm, our goal and desire is to share the love and passion we have for agriculture and farm fresh food. Accomplishing our goal cannot be done without the delightful support shown by you, our Farm Family.
The History of the Ranch
In 1880, this area, then named Ash Creek Ranch, was homesteaded by two families. They chose this beautiful area for the fertile farm land, plentiful forage, mild climate, and free-flowing irrigation water from Ash Creek and Mulberry Spring. They maximized the natural resources by building rock homes, rock fences, and gravity flow irrigation ditches. Their original production of forage crops, corn, vegetables, and cattle supported the families for many years.
Throughout the years other families have followed the example of the original homesteaders by continuing to maximize the use of natural resources and by being excellent stewards of the land. These families continued to raise cattle and farm irrigated grass pastures.
Since 2003 our family has been able to call Ash Creek Ranch home. We continue the work of the families before: continuing agriculture in Arizona, protecting the land, conserving water, and raising premium quality beef. We believe by caring for our environment we will be able to continue this legacy for many years to come.
At Ash Creek Ranch we raise Black Angus Cattle. These cattle are selected for their genetics, performance, and beef quality. Our cattle are born and raised on the ranch. They are with the cows for the first six to nine months. At this time their diet consists of cow milk and gradually increases to natural vegetation forage with supplemental mineral, protein, salt, vitamins, and lots of clean fresh water.
When the calves are weaned, the milk they were receiving is replaced by additional forage. When the calves weigh between 750-800 pounds they are sold to a commercial feed lot.
At Ash Creek Ranch we are continually improving the genetic traits of our cattle. What does this mean to you? Continued improved quality and younger finishing age means: lean, more flavorful, and tender beef. This also provides us with a healthy herd, ranch raised, homegrown calves, and premium beef.
