While the emphasis at our ranch is on horses and horseback riding, we feel that healthy culinary enjoyment is also a vital part of life here. Salads come fresh from the garden, ranch raised beef and lamb are served, and bread is baked in the kitchen ovens. We are also happy to cater to special diets with our gourmet ranch cuisine.

The best home cooking away from home! Great variety well presented.  –Hamilton Family, Jersey, Channel Islands
