Due to the Corona Virus, a family out of Las Vegas with in-laws from LA, (16 people!) decided to check out Lifewater Ranch for two whole months in the summer of 2020.
I stayed at a friends home nearby (Thanks Aaron!) and came by once or twice a week to check on the pool and grounds to make sure everything stayed working and perfect for my guests.
The above photo was taken on one such occasion. The family has been building trails, hiking our 160 acres, cooking fun foods, mountain biking the area, river rafting, enjoying the pool and hot-tub and learning about farming from our renter/caretaker Mickey.
Note that Mickey’s farm sells top quality organic eggs, chicken, pork and beef in season and due to the CV is likely a very good buy this year because Mickey does his own butchering. So while meat is astronomical at your grocery, and on-the-hoof cattle prices are way down (due to large meat processing plants not being allowed to work), Mickey is bypassing the whole issue using DIY techniques. If you trust Mickey more than the USDA (and I do!) then load up on some great food this year from his farm!
I also got to teach our guests some chess as shown below:
As of this writing, the family has extended through August and is considering staying till October!
Consider locking in some time at Lifewater Ranch for next year before another family takes all the fun!
