Elk, deer, owls, hawks, coyotes, moose, trout and other species also make the ranch their home.

Snake River Ranch is located in Jackson Hole, a valley in Teton County Wyoming, and is defined by the Teton Range on the west and the Snake River on the east.

The majority of the ranch is comprised of irrigated pasture, which we manage for the grass that our steers harvest.Beginning in the late 1980’s, we adjusted our fences so our pastures are based on vegetation, not historic ownership lines. This allows us to manage the “grass” pastures for optimal grazing and the “tree” pastures to protect the trees and shrubs that are important for ecological diversity.

Elk, deer, owls, hawks, coyotes, moose, trout and other species also make the ranch their home. Protection of stream and river banks ensures healthy vegetation that shades the riparian areas and protects water quality. Grizzly bears and wolves are new members of our community and have been sighted on the ranch.

Beginning in the 1980’s, portions of the ranch have been put under conservation easement in order to protect the scenic and wildlife values of the land forever.
