The James Ranch is awesome. They make their own cheese from cows they milk, have an organic vege garden, beef cows, chickens, tons of grazing room. It's not supermarket prices but then again you aren't eating supermarket food. We took home 15 lbs of beef. Love the grassfed beef. Lot better flavor than store bought.

We stopped by the ranch and tasted the several cheeses made at the farm. They were wonderful! We also learned about the family and the natural life they lead on the ranch. Neat stop near Durango!

The James Ranch is awesome. They make their own cheese from cows they milk, have an organic vege garden, beef cows, chickens, tons of grazing room and all 5 James kids and their families now work with their parents on the farm. Loved getting the tour and u will too.

James Ranch is a Durango institution. From organic produce and meats to tasty sandwiches at the Harvest Grill, nothing has been overlooked. It's not the cheapest burger, or is it super convenient, but it is well worth the time to visit and relax for a few hours.

My family and I went to the Burger & Band night at the James Ranch, and had a great time! There was something for everyone and I highly recommend it. First, the eats...the burgers are amazing. Everything everyone says about the great taste of a farm-to-table burger is true. The sides, the desserts, everything has a home-grown, homemade taste that... More

The setting is lovely, their meats and cheeses for sale in their shop and at the Farmers' Market are organic and tasty. We weren't impressed however with their dining area at the ranch. Our order was not well prepared, not very good and it was overpriced for what we had - gluten free cheese sandwiches...i would go there to see... More

What a unique setting! All of the food you are eating is raised or made from products grown right on the property. This is true green with minimal transportation impact. We both had the Harvest Burger with the Belford cheese. The side salad was fresh from the garden that day. They even have a small shop to purchase products from... More

We found the James Ranch to be one of the most relaxing and enjoyable venue's we've been at ever. They really are trying to bring back the way things were grown and consumed before processed foods became the norm. They raise grass fed beef, home grown vegetables, fresh wonderful cheese, all made on site. The food prepared there is unbelievably... More

My husband, 9 yr old, 6 yr old, and I visited James Ranch on our vacation to Durango. Located about 10 miles outside Durango on a scenic drive, it's a quick trip to a hidden jewel. The ranch raises grass fed organic cattle for beef and for milk. They grow vegetables and flowers. They sell these items at their market... More

Just north of Durango on 550 (Million Dollar Highway), this place is open Saturday's only in May then also during the week when the weather is more predictable into the summer. Absolutely worth the stop if you're just riding by and a MUST stop if you are staying in the area. This family owned and run enterprise has been in... More
