Established in 1911 the 5000+ acre ranch is home to cows, their offspring which arrive in March, and quality ranch horses that foal in May. The ranch cattle are marketed through a cooperative known as “Country Natural Beef” in various natural food markets. The horses are raised and sold private treaty from the ranch.
Yamsi is also home to an assortment of wildlife and flora and is managed holistically. Timber, grasses, and cattle are managed with the whole in mind. Habitat for fish and wildlife are an important consideration for management. Wormers for cattle and chemicals of any sort are kept to a minimum if used at all on the ranch and its environment.
We are a wildlife sanctuary. When bird watching and taking nature hikes down the valley you may see bald eagles, pelicans, herons, egrets, ducks, song birds, deer, antelope, elk, cougars, and coyotes all living peacefully in our balanced, healthy ecosystem.
The ranch is managed by family members who care deeply for the land and our livestock.
