This weekend will be your last chance to hit up the market at James Ranch — well, at least until next summer.
James Ranch’s Fall Harvest Festival on Saturday, Oct. 12, marks the end of the ranch’s summer hours, so pack up the kids (or the grown-ups) and take the family to enjoy the ranch’s festivities and fare while you can.
The festival runs 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and includes a pumpkin hunt, a jack-o’-lantern contest, squash bowling, cheese rolling, arts and crafts, and live music.
The 400-acre, family owned ranch is 10 miles north of Durango, Colorado, in the lush Animas River Valley. There, visitors will find a farmstand stocked with James Ranch’s own products: grass-finished beef, pasture-grazed and whey-fed pork, artisan cheese made using milk from the ranch’s grass-fed Jersey cows, raw milk, fresh eggs, and produce and flowers from the organic gardens.
