The Brush Creek Ranch Story

We see ourselves much like we see the land: rooted in history.

When the pioneers surged Westward in the late 1800s and established homesteads along the way, what they left in their path was a strong legacy of hard work and sustainability. Brush Creek Ranch and our growing collection of historic ranches continue in this tradition, operating as authentic cattle ranches.

Legacy

Saratoga, Wyoming’s natural hot springs have been drawing people’s attention for centuries. It was a destination for Native Americans and eventually American frontiersmen as they pushed Westward in the late 19th century. It became a hub for settlers, trappers, and loggers, like the Sterrett brothers,...

Working Ranch

Our dedicated, authentic staff bring together a harmonious balance of elegance and the true nature of a working ranch.

We oversee two cattle herds: 200 head of Wagyu cattle for our culinary program, and 150 head of Corriente cattle for drives or arena games. Both herds calve late April thru May. During this time, our team works tirelessly to care for the new generation of cattle.

Our 120 head of horses are available for our guests to ride. Additionally, we train and maintain 20 head of horses to be used by the agriculture team for tending the livestock. All our livestock work is from horseback as to preserve our western heritage.

We’ve thoughtfully crafted 90 miles of irrigation ditches to carry water from our nearby streams and rivers. This system feeds the 1,200 ton of native grasses used to feed the livestock from November thru mid May.

Maintaining a 30,000 acre ranch is no small feat. From the livestock, agriculture, or even tending to our 100 miles of fencing, our hands reflect a hard days work year-round. Yet, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Sustainability

When you have a greenhouse, seasons don’t dictate the growth and harvest of a crop. You can grow whatever you want, whenever you want. This can come with its own set of issues, such as wasting water or raising an over-abundance of produce that spoil long before they’re consumed.
