Our Lady’s Ranch

About Our Lady’s Ranch

Our Lady’s Ranch is a homesteading community in Grass Valley, California that teaches and supports aspiring farmers/homesteaders in the building of their own farms and homesteads.

How did Our Lady’s Ranch Get Started?

We began homesteading in 2004 and started a livestock operation and farming business in 2010 called Family Friendly Farms. We define homesteading as, “A sustainable lifestyle that prioritizes the family and the home while being connected to the earth.”

How does the Catholic Faith impact Our Lady’s Ranch?

Everything we do centers in Jesus Christ through Our Lady as we live as contemplatives in action. We start each day in prayer to receive God’s grace and then allow God to live and move through us in all our activities and interactions with others. We strive to make every interaction an encounter with Jesus. Our mission is “To Live in Peace and to Share it with Others.”
