Welcome! L-J Ranch is nestled in the heart of the Pine River Valley, in Bayfield Colorado. For over sixty years this working cattle ranch has been providing the community with the highest quality Natural Beef and other treasures. We specialize in growing premium mixed grass hay, and pride ourselves in selling all our harvest locally. The 2011 season brought L-J Ranch a new adventure in growing hops. We have worked with local colleges and breweries learning how to grow hops in Colorado. We are also becoming well known as one of the most beautiful Colorado Wedding Venues. The 100 acres of green meadows, tall cottonwoods, rambling streams, and crystal clear lake otherwise known as LePlatt’s Pond creates the perfect setting for those larger than life moments.
