Welcome New Members - March 2012 (PART I)

March was a great month for new members! So much so, that we decided to split the welcome post into two parts. Today we bring you Part I, with four new farms and ranches to introduce:


Paca Pride Guest Ranch, Granite Falls, Washington

Enjoy a bit of rustic resort "glamping" in these yurts, located in the Cascade Mountains north of Seattle. Situated along the historic gold rush Robe Valley of the Mountain Loop Highway, Paca Pride becomes home base from which to explore the area. Relax with the alpacas and learn about their fiber, and see permaculture in action.

Paca Pride Guest Ranch can accommodate up to 60 guests -- anywhere from 2 in a guest room, 4 in the yurt, or 10 on each camping platform. The yurt is fully furnished and has electricity and heat. Meals are self-prepared in the full kitchen. Children under 12 are welcome, as are pets, weddings, private parties, and other special events.

Turkeys Iron Cloud

Iron Cloud Ranch, Clyde, Kansas

Private hunting is the draw here at Iron Cloud Ranch, located in North Central Kansas. They also grow speciality vegetables, and practice hydroponics. Enjoy nature walks and mushroom hunting, or join the owner for guided hunting or fishing.

The private cabin can accommodate up to 6 guests. Meals are made to order, or can be self-prepared with organic and locally grown food. Children under 12 are welcome, as are pets, horses, weddings, reunions, and other special events.


Taos Cultural Farm Visits, Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico

Tucked away in the high valleys of Northern New Mexico, Taos Cultural Farm Visits offers visitors a glimpse at an historic lifestyle. This consortium of farms and ranches works together to offer a wide variety of experiences for visitors. Guests can take cooking classes, go horseback riding, help with organic farming, and so much more.

Accommodations and amenities will vary by farm, so guests should contact them for more information.


3 Arrows Ranch, Ellensburg, Washington

Lush green pastures beckon on this family farm, located just east of the Cascade Range in Washington. Guests are invited to take part in daily chores, like gathering eggs or milking cows, make cheese and ice cream with farm fresh milk, or just spend time playing together as a family.

There are four RV sites available at the farm, with a total capacity of 24. A family of up to six (2 adults, 4 children) can also choose to stay in the farm's RV. All meals can be provided or self-prepared in the full kitchen or make use of the barbeque. Children under 12 are welcome, as are parties and family reunions.

Stay tuned for Part II!
