About* the Ranch
To manage and preserve land for sustainable growth of food and forest products while enriching the community through outreach, education, and fun activities.
Respect for nature is a core belief held by all at Woodlife Ranch. Habitat restoration, soil regeneration, along with resource conservation are the focus of our day-to-day operations and long-term agronomic plans.
Our Goals & Objectives
Our main goal at Woodlife Ranch is to produce high quality food and forest products using the most environmentally responsible and sustainable practices. We approach all aspects of ranching and farming with a holistic approach that conserves natural resources, minimizes negative environmental impacts, and maximizes ecosystem services.
Over the next several years, Woodlife Ranch will increase production of apples, honey, and maple products. Most importantly, Woodlife Ranch will be used as a teaching and educational facility for the community. Our primary focus will be on giving back to those who have given so much to protect our rights and freedom. We will work with various organizations that support Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.
