A look back at 2016 from K Creek Ranch!

We are so thankful to be able to share our passion of promoting health from the soil up!  We are even more grateful that you share in this passion!  Over the past couple of years it became evident to us just how important health is!  Dr. Neil Rohe from Inspired Chiropractic has had a major role in teaching us that health is function, not just how you “feel” but how well your body functions!  His workshops have inspired us to be even more diligent on the quality of food we eat and most importantly produce for you; our loyal customers!

We wanted to take a look back and show you all some of our greatest moments of 2016! We hope you enjoy it!

Our chicks sure love grazing!  It is amazing how much they eat and how often we need to move them!

We love winter grazing because the cattle are so much healthier being out to pasture than they would be stuck in small feedlots!

Proper land management creates soil rich in organic matter, making it porous and full of biological life!

This was one of the most beautiful storms to watch come in!
