Breaking Away From The Herd...High Wire Ranch, Hotchkiss, Colorado

By
Real Estate Agent with Cedaredge Land Company

Breaking Away From The Herd...High Wire Ranch, Hotchkiss, Colorado. High Wire Ranch isn't your typical Western Colorado Ranch. The owners of High Wire Ranch have broken out of the traditional western ranch stereotype. The main herds at the ranch are Elk and Buffalo.

Breaking Away From The Herd...High Wire Ranch, Hotchkiss, Colorado

It's so neat to just drive by this ranch and see all the elk and bison. In the fall the elk are sporting their large racks (antlers) and it's really something to see. The day I took this picture, the Elk were at the other end of the ranch.

Dave and Sue Whittlesey own High Wire Ranch and have been raising buffalo since 1981 and elk since 1987. Dave and Sue are no strangers to ranching and have worked really hard to get their ranch off the ground. You can find out more about the Whittleseys here. All of the animals are grass fed and no hormones or antibiotics are used...so the meat is all natural. And pretty tasty, too. I use to do the Cedaredge Farmer's Market with Dave and Sue many years ago. The Whittleseys have been featured in Sunset Magazine and Eating Well Magazine. The meat is shipped all over the country. You can get more information on High Wire Ranch by visiting here.

Debbie   We have a gentleman that owns 60,000 acres with buffalo and elk.  It is just a down-right peaceful feeling to see these herds.  Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas from the front range!

I'll have to check out ordering.  A friend used to hunt out there every year, but doesn't anymore.  I miss what he used to share with my family.

Debbie, there is something very special about these large animals roaming the land.   We have a place just outside Denver where the buffalo roam.

Debbie, I'm having a "do do do" moment.  On Thursday, we met a couple of friends of ours for happy hour to exchange gifts.  One of the couples went on and on about their recent present from their daughter - meat from High Wire Ranch.  He loved how the history of how it all came to be was included in his gift.  What a small, SMALL, world.

Hi, Tammy...I like both the buffalo and elk. My husband prefers elk.

Hi, Joy...let me know what you think of it.

Hi, Joan...I've seen that. It's really nice to see these big animals roaming around.

Oh, Juli...it really is a small world. We seem to be connecting over food. First sweet corn, and now meat. LOL.

Hi, Roy...when you get out this way, be sure to look me up. I love to play tourguide.

Debbie, great Localism post about High Wire Ranch in Hotchkiss Colorado.  It reminds me of a Buffalo ranch I used to pass outside of Woodstock Illinois...I would also go to the local Woodstock Farmers Market and buy Buffalo meat there and as you say...very tasty!
