A Few Words About Reata Ranch
We are a working sheep and cattle ranch in southwestern Colorado. We strive daily for the noble cause of feeding and clothing our nation and the world while being responsible stewards of the land, and creating water, food, and habitat for wildlife, and beautiful scenery for all to enjoy. We also offer high-country horseback riding and camping experiences. We also train horses and horse owners to help create a safer and more happy, relaxed, and fun-filled relationship. We pride ourselves in the rich culture, history, and uniqueness of our family-owned sheep, cattle, and horses business that is now into it’s 5th generation! Jakey Brown originally bought a herd of sheep and raised sheep and cattle in the Durango, Colorado area in the mid-1900’s. His grandson, J. Paul Brown (initial “J” stands for Jakey), life-time rancher and former Colorado State Representative, his wife, Debbie, and their children and grandchildren, including the most recent grandson addition, Jakey Brown (1 year old), who is the original Jakey’s great-great grandson, continue that legacy. What a joy it is for our family to continue this tradition so we and all those whom this ranch positively affects can continue to reap the rich rewards it provides.
