This is an exclusive event that is rarely available to the public. Two of Jackson's ranching families will tour attendees on their working ranches, explain the history of their century-old businesses, and talk about the present and future of the ag industry in Jackson.
Begin your tour, transportation included, in downtown Jackson one block from Town Square (Home Ranch Parking Lot), then visit 2 of Jackson's famous ranches before sitting down to a ranch-to-table meal where very few get to dine. Family-style dinner will be served outside at Ranch Headquarters at the final ranch, featuring a farm-to-table meal with ingredients from local farms and Mead Ranch. Local beer & wine will be paired with each coures for the 21+ attendees, but visitors of all ages are welcome.
