New Haven Ranch


New Haven Ranch
Wyoming USA

The Black Hills of Wyoming - historic and beautiful. Timbered canyon country where the deer and the antelope still play. Cattle graze and families are raised in the tradition the old west. Neighbors still help each other work, and ranchers care for the land and livestock to sustain themselves and their future generations. Here you find the New Haven Ranch. It is a family-run working cattle ranch on the edge of the Black Hills in Northeastern Wyoming. Since 2003 they have been inviting guests to share their way of life. Four generations live and work on the ranch.
You participate in the daily ranch activities, which include rounding up cattle, branding, riding fence, driving horses between pastures and from late Spring to early September we drive with the horses quite often to South Dakota to help  work cattle on the endless grass prairie as depicted in "Dances with Wolves".

The home ranch is situated on the grounds of an old ghost town in Northeastern Wyoming.  About 150 years ago the first settlers, called "homesteaders", came to the area. The small farmers were up against the rough climate, down-and-dirty cattle barons, hostile Indian tribes and the depression of the early 20th century. Many gave up and left. Today cattle graze the ranch every year. The old buildings and machinery, though bear witness of times that nowadays we only know from movies.
Driving in you see the home place. Part Ghost Town of New Haven, Wy, since 1910 with the old General Store, Grainery,  and School Teachers cabin ...Grandma Jo may be weeding the garden, the critters are being fed~ chickens, dogs, baby goats, lambs and calves. The horses are being run in the corral for the day. There ain’t nothin’ more beautiful than seeing the remuda run and buck and kick in the cool morning air. The men are working on the old buildings, restoring them to last for another 100 years. And everyone is getting their pony saddled for the days work.

" Ridin’ herd on the rim of the canyon. Feels like yer lookin’ at most of Wyoming and Montana from up here."
