    Description

    Are you interested in ranch life? We are have a beautiful ranch in the Panhandle of Nebraska. It borders Winters Creek Lake, which is a National Wildlife Refugee and an excellent fishing lake. It is also only a couple miles to Lake Minatare which has beautiful sandy beaches for swimming and great fishing. There are amazing opportunities to hike, view wildlife and camp in nearby National and State parks in Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming. We are always working on a few projects such as building fence, irrigating, building flight pens for pheasants, mowing and spraying weeds, planting fields and working the cattle. We can always use mechanical help fixing and maintaining the farm equipment. We are lifelong ranchers and horse trainers. We ride a lot of horses every day and have really enjoyed sharing this way of life! We love working together with people from around the world here on the ranch. There is always a lot of work to do and it is very rewarding to work as a family and a team to accomplish what needs to be done. This is a great opportunity to experience ranch life and the hard work and rewards that go with it!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a great place to experience an old fashioned way of life. Working with the horses and cattle and working in the fields and on the ranch is rewarding. There are many local rodeos and music festivals that workawayers often enjoy attending. Training horses with us is also a rare opportunity to work with lifelong horsemen.

  • Help

    Help

    There are a lot of skills that are useful and needed on a ranch but a great attitude and willingness to learn is the most important. We can use helpers which have horse experience. A mechanic is always welcome! Lol! There is always general labor such as yardwork, irrigating, gardening, fence fixing and chores that need to be done. Helpers are needed and appreciated and we are willing to help them learn new skills and experience new work they may never have had an opportunity to learn.

    We are only 2.5 hours from the Denver, Colorado area. It is also only several hours to many National Parks and ski areas in the Rocky Mountains. Yellowstone and The Tetons are within a days drive. There are the two lakes right here close to the ranch which are great for swimming, camping and fishing. We enjoy having young people in our home and on our ranch and we appreciate the help which they give us!
