Pine Cliff Ranch is a working cattle ranch in Sedalia, Colorado, comprised of approximately 3,900 acres. It is located 6 miles west of Castle Rock and less than 35 minutes from downtown Denver. It is the largest privately owned ranch in Douglas County.
The Ranch has several ridges and bluffs covered with pine trees along with irrigated meadows and is protected by a conservation easement through Colorado Open Lands, which guarantees that the land can never be developed.
Established in the 1880's, Pine Cliff Ranch had been intensively used as a traditional working cattle ranch. Since purchasing the property in 1999, we have been persistent in our efforts to return the land to a healthy, productive state with diverse wildlife habitats that are in harmony with nature. Through this work, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in biodiversity and the health of our native range. The Douglas County Conservation District recognized these efforts by bestowing on Pine Cliff Ranch the Outstanding District Conservationist of the Year Award for 2011.
We believe that grazing cattle is integral to maintaining the health and sustainability of the land. We accomplish this by utilizing planned rotational grazing, strategic placement of water and minerals for the cattle, and timing our grazing to avoid disrupting the natural ecosystem.
We produce Red Angus cattle for the Certified Natural beef market and direct-market to the consumer a limited number of grass-finished cattle.
We are a private working ranch and do not allow public access.
