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.
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 Akaushi 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.
Our Ranch landscape combines native sagebrush and pastoral meadows with lush forests of aspen, cottonwood, and conifers. Did we mention the spectacular views of the Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountain ranges? You’ll find that here, too.
Our adventures unfold from elevations beginning at 6,900 feet up to 12,000 feet at Medicine Bow’s peak, one of the highest mountain elevations in the United States. We deliver our guests adventures for every season, leaving them with memories that last a lifetime.
Private air access can be found an easy 13 miles from our front gate, at Saratoga’s local airport. We can be reached via I-80 and WY Hwy 130. We’re 3.5 hours from Denver and one hour from Laramie. Our team is here to assist you in every step of planning your visit.
Welcome to Brush Creek Ranch, the heart of the American West.
