Highland Glenn Ranch is a 40-acre diversified ranch located in the ruggedly beautiful Kettle Range of northeastern Washington State.
Although still growing, there are many facets to the ranch- from dogs to rabbits to cattle. Foremost we are committed to the stewardship of this land, being sustainable, and conservation of heritage breeds. We work together with our dogs, livestock, and gardens to provide for ourselves and share the bounty with others.
We practice a multi-species, managed intensive grazing system. The livestock lead contented lives in the pasture, motherside from birth. Our goal is naturally raised high quality eggs, meat, and wool. We also offer superior breeding stock to like-minded folks interested in preserving heritage livestock for future generations.
It seems there’s always something going on, so come back often to read the Ranch Letters!

The Dream Today
We escaped the hustle and bustle of urban life for the peace and fresh air of the mountains! The search for our special place took us on a journey to northeastern Washington where the enchanting beauty of the Kettle Range in the Okanogan Highlands inspired Highland Glenn Ranch, the land to which we now belong.
Life on the Ranch hearkens back to the good ole days when life was slower, sustainable, centered on the seasons, home and family. The gentle breeze through the pines and soothing sounds of nature add to the atmosphere. We live in harmony with nature’s ebb and flow. Make no mistake about it… there is a lot of hard work entailed with this way of life, yet it is oh so rewarding!
In the spirit of the 1800’s, we embrace and preserve the richness of the past while utilizing appropriate modern technology. Highland Glenn Ranch is powered by the sun, watered with rain and snow, heated and built with wood from the glen.
We are committed to land stewardship. Chemical ‘-cides’ and fertilizers do not touch this pristine ground. No one would be the wiser whether we used such toxins or not. But the little green frog at the creek knows, as does the red-tailed Hawk soaring above, the chickens scratching in the soil, the shy doe with fawn foraging in the pasture alongside lowing cow and calf. And WE know!
“… it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.” – Laura Ingalls Wilder
