This year’s Sheep Tales Gathering will present unique stories from three different ranches in the West.
Marcia’s ranching story is steeped in her family’s Basque heritage, starting a ranch on her own in California. What began as a dairy farm, has now transitioned into one that produces fiber. Alongside Marcia will be
Julie’s story of continuing the family ranch after losing her husband. Although a hard-working rancher by day (and often night!) Julie tries to make time for a life outside of ranching in Colorado.
Also, not to be missed are the stories of the mother/daughter team of Andrée and Bianca, who manage the family’s commercial sheep and goat business, sharing a commitment to both targeted grazing and protecting the land from the threat of wildfire. This conversation will be moderated by multi-generation Idaho rancher, Mike Guerry.
