The Denver post named The Home Ranch as a Sustainable Stay and 2018 Vacation Getaway.
The article talks about some new trends like farm-to-table-to-bed and places to stay which look at sustainability and conservation The Stranahan founders began conservation efforts in the Elk River Valley where the Home Ranch is located. Because of them thousands of acres were saved from development and will always provide views and agriculture activities.
Farm to Table has been part of the Home Ranch dining experience for over a decade (well before most other vacation properties and restaurants began to look in that direction). Growing things on the ranch saves dollars, gas, wear and tear on highways and delivery from food vendors from out of town or even out of state. The Ranch provides its own beef and pork. The kitchen waste goes to the chickens and the hogs!
Guests can tour the gardens and greenhouse and learn how to prepare harvest goodies in the kitchen with Chef Jonathan. Growing plants with a purpose and organically is how we roll. Horticulture Manager and Master Gardner Allison Mecklenburg spends a lot of time talking to interested guests about gardening at altitude.
So if you want to support vacation properties with an eye toward environmental-friendly, The Home Ranch is a good place to visit.
