Chicken Scratch from Clyde’s Farm

Our mission to pursue sustainability and expand on the Farm-to-Table movement

Spring has sprung here in Routt County, and up has grown a greenhouse in our backyard. The winter meltdown and mud season is now upon us – but inside our spacious 32’ x 70’ hoop house, our gardening crews have been busy. A key component in our Farm-to Table Master Plan is now a beautiful reality.

Master gardener Adele Carlson designed the layout for the vegetable, herb and flower beds, and seeds were sown in early February. They sprouted and flourished in Executive Chef Clyde Nelson’s home kitchen windows during the winter and next week the transplanting will begin. We will be harvesting greens, herbs and vegetables by late May for our first guests’ arrival…

Reflecting on Winter

As we wind down our winter season, it is always time to reflect.
We had a very nice winter and want to thank all of our guests that joined us and made for a wonderful season. It is so nice to chat by the fire in our dining room at night. The plates that are so beautifully presented and taste so great – it’s hard to beat. Thank you to Clyde, Craig, James, JD, David, Anne and of Course, Shannon for the wonderful pastries and desserts.
We will be saying goodbye to Mike, Mark, Alec and Leslie ’til next winter. We are so proud of our ski guides. Their knowledge and skill makes our ski and snowshoe program one of a kind. It was a cold winter, but we had great snow all winter. Thank you, ski guides.
When you check in, you are greeted with a big smile – We thank Selina, Nikki and Laura for that. The folks at our front desk truly get your vacation started on the right foot.
Kelly and his new team of Percherons have been a lot of fun to watch. Kelly was also riding right up to the end of the season…

Tree Trimming

Our employees have been getting back into the ‘grind’ here at the ranch, but of course they’ve been enjoying our 30 km of groomed cross country skiing and a little holiday cheer.

Our annual tree trimming party (decorating, not cutting!) was this past weekend, and we were able to welcome some new comers to our crew while we beautified the lodge for the holidays. We may have decorated the main tree but each of our cabins has its own tree and ornaments for the guests to decorate. The Home Ranch is definitely one of the most beautiful winter getaways that I’ve ever been to and now I’ve made it not only a seasonal place, but my permanent home. Come join us for your next all-inclusive holiday treat for you and your family…
