You Can Stay The Night On A Working Sheep Farm At Villard Ranch In Colorado
Have you ever dreamed of being a farmer or rancher but never had it come to fruition? While starting a farm on your own is hard work, there are easier ways to get your fix, like, of course, visiting a working farm for a day or two. If you are looking to have a farm experience but aren’t sure how to do it, we recommend staying the night at Colorado’s Villard Ranch:
Located in beautiful Craig, the Villard Ranch is a third-generation sheep farm that is just as famous for its meats as it is for the friendly Villard family.
While the Villard Ranch is known for its fresh American lamb, you may be surprised to learn that it also offers unique opportunities for the community, including the annual Sheep Wagon Days, hunting excursions, and even opportunities to stay at the ranch!
How does a night (or weekend) at the Ranch work? You get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay in an old sheep wagon, which is billed as being "efficient and fun."
In addition to staying in the surprisingly comfortable space, you get to pick where the wagon is parked, which can be as close to the road or as far into the fields as you like.
If you have been craving a vacation from the ordinary, this is it, as you can also rent horses, try your hand at sheep farming, hike, search for wildlife, or just relax in this peaceful oasis.
Your stay at the Villard Ranch can be booked by visiting their
