Farm and Rancher
We Love The Land We Caretake.
We Appreciate Our Animals And Wildlife.
We Respect The Water And Wilderness.
Farm And Rancher is designed to be a place for actual farmers and ranchers to post actual ads for items that we use, buy or sell, which includes livestock.
As times have changed drastically in just a short period of time, we find ourselves and our livelihood being questioned on other Social Media platforms, continually deleting, flagging, questioning, and rendering the ways we do business as not suitable for their platforms.
At Farm And Rancher, we welcome all livestock owners to post their ads in the way you deem suitable.
We do not question livestock sales, although we do insist on the accuracy and honesty of the ad.
We are farmers and ranchers. We take pride in our heritage, family and friends.
As we develop and expand regionally and nationally, we encourage you to join our Partner platform and earn seed money for your farm or ranch just for sharing your code, which you can verbally share as well.
We aim to make everything transparent, honest and build a platform that You are proud of.
My name is Cara Randolph.
I reside just outside of Cortez, Colorado with my husband, Allan.
Our ranch consists of home-raised, Grass-Fed, Black Angus/Irish Black Cow-Calf Operation, ranch horses, barn cats, 3 goats, Jesse, our female runt, cattle working, Border Collie, Yankey, our retired Curly Coated Retriever, Our Polydactyl indoor cats, and of course, all of the wildlife that comes and goes.
The real western spirit is very much alive and is a real way of life. Many folk here have families which the land has passed from generation to generation by way of Homesteading.
The families here are generations deep with roots that show in their pride as their children
grow up and take over the reins of the running the farm or ranch.
I am a member of Our local "Southwestern Cowbelles" organization, (Colorado Cattle Women Assn).
We are ranchers and volunteers that are involved with educating folk about beef and agriculture, especially the youth to continue our long-standing traditions of farming and ranching.
We all help to raise funds for scholarships and education for our future farmers and ranchers,
we donate our time, money, and meals to families in times of crisis
and help ensure that event-goers are well fed.
I am proud to be a Cowbelle and Colorado Cattle Woman Member.
The land on the western slope of the Rockies is wild and untamed for the most part.
It usually has an abundant water supply from the beautiful and wild Rocky Mountains
and filled with lots of wildlife.
It is Bear, Mountain Lion and Elk Country And Our Cattle Know This Well, Too.
It is some of the most beautiful country in the world and it is the rugged and wild west here.
Real Cowboys and Cowgirls Live And Work Here.
And I Am Proud To Be Called a Cowboy By The Cowboys (Although I Am A Cowgirl).
When You Ride With Your Cattle or Someone Else's Cattle,
You Are A Cowboy No Matter What Sex You Are.
You Are Expected To Do What We All Do, And Have True Grit... No "Girlies Girls" Are Allowed.
Do What The Cow Boss Tells You To Do and
Know There's Only One Cow Boss.
Listen, Learn, And Be Quiet In The Saddle When You Need To Be
Ride And Handle Your Horse Well, And Have Fun Living This Amazing Life.
We Run our cattle high in the mountain country of SW Colorado and Pagosa Springs in the summer and on our property in the Winter.
We grow up our pasture for the cattle to eat when they come off the mountain in the fall and raise much of our food in the garden and enjoy canning it for the future.
We grow 10,000 Organic, Gourmet Garlic Plants for seed stock for new garlic growers.
We Get Fresh Milk, Cream (To Make Butter) And Eggs Weekly
From a Herdshare Program Just Down The Road That Delivers.
In the Winter Time, we grind 4 mixtures of hay, combined with silage to keep the calves warm and growing in the winter, hold back the heifers to grow our herd and sell our Steers at 1100-1300 lbs when they come off the mountain in the Fall.
Allan, my husband, also owns a Peterbilt Semi which he hauls cattle, hay, gravel and equipment with many different trailers.
It's Allan's "Custom Hauling" Thing He Likes To Do.
It is a lifestyle choice that we greatly love, appreciate and respect.
