Many visitors come to the Imperial Stock Ranch each year. With each group that visits, we guide them onto the land and share our experience and observations. We share the history and how things have changed – sometimes for the better, and sometimes not. From old car clubs to chef tours, and producer groups to fiber enthusiasts, we customize every experience to match the interests of those visiting. Sharing our knowledge and vision, and exploring the challenges and solutions with visitors, the ranch helps to work toward a better and more sustainable future.
There’s much to see and experience. From the headquarters complex, which is approximately 22 acres in size with 18 buildings and structures from the historic period of the ranch (1871 to 1945), to homestead cabins, Native American sites, cattle operations, sheep, crop production and more. The cost and experience of each tour can be uniquely tailored to the interests and size of the group. Group tour minimums: 10 people. Self-guided tours are not available; the ranch is privately owned.
Lodging is available at the Imperial River Company located 20 minutes from the ranch. Make your tour and lodging reservations at deschutesriver.com or contact the ranch at 541-395-2450.
Dan and Jeanne participate in numerous conferences, workshops and public speaking engagements each year, where they share their story of land management, history, family ranching, growing food, fiber and their direct marketing journey.
