Today our Grandma Jean turned 88.  

88 stunningly beautiful years. Isn't she gorgeous?!

She made the ranch home for her kids, grandkids, great-grandkids.

No matter where life has taken all of us- we know the ranch as home.  Because she is here.

She taught us how to li...

The other day my Grandpa Bob was retelling one of the many stories from his youth.  His narratives are riveting for a variety of reasons, and makes you wonder if you know what toughness really is!

We have emerged from calving season, and only have a few stragglers left to go- so I'm back!  But with each passing season, a new one comes.  Currently, we are getting ready to get the cattle out to summer pasture by branding, and getting everything ready to go for bre...

As we are about 70 baby calves into calving season, our family is adjusting to a new norm. This adjustment happens every year at about the same time- yet it is always a slight shock to the system.  So, I thought I would share some things we become very familiar with du...

As I am sitting in my living room looking out at my beloved Tigerbutte Mountain, I can't help but be thankful.  I am so thankful for where I live, and even more thankful for my family- especially the two that started it all.

Ground beef may be the most versatile beef product available.  It can be used for tacos, spaghetti, shepherd's pie, meatloaf, and many more options- including a juicy, delectable, burger.

Before going into how to make a killer burger, I want to talk about some ground be...

So, on this blog I have decided to do "Memoir Mondays"- sort of like "Flashback Fridays". I will be giving glimpses into the past.  Most times, I will be recounting stories my grandpa has told about his life when he was younger on the McCafferty Ranch.  

Today, I w...

One thing about living on a ranch is that your equipment- trucks, tractors, four-wheelers, swathers, balers, etc.....- are ALWAYS in dire need of repair.  One ranch (at least ours), could easily hire a full time mechanic, or two,or three, if money were not an issue.  A...
