The Next Wave of Workforce,
Wellness and Agritourism
for All Generations

What started in March 2020 as an idea to create a couple of destination ranches for families, elders and kids has blossomed into the nationwide commUNITY GRID network movement of startup and existing farms and ranches as well as retreat and wellness centers around the U.S.

We provide a network of tranquil, beautiful nature destinations for stressed out individuals, families and groups where they can step away from everyday life to rest, work, play, learn, heal or live.

Well-Come to R.A.N.C.H.
