Rockin’ R Ranch is more than a place to come and lose yourself for a week. More than 130 years ago, the Black family settled in Grass Valley—and, to this day, they own and manage the working cattle ranch. Most of Antimony’s 168 residents, like the Blacks, are ranchers. Their acreage surrounds a little town that features one country store, a single church, and a two-room school...much like it was when the Blacks first settled here. That means one thing: where there are cattle ranches, there are cattle drives. So if you’ve ever imagined yourself following the trail boss across the western plain, here’s your chance to be part of a real western cattle drive!
Sign on as a “cowhand” on one of our authentic cattle drives and leave the 20th Century behind. Enjoy the Old West as you ride the range. Work as much or as little as you like while herding cattle through miles and miles of beautiful mountains to their seasonal grazing grounds. Ride “drag” or as “drovers”. Enjoy hearty meals served out in the mountains, and experience the lore of the West. It’s a rustic setting with the unbeatable luxury of spectacular vistas, great food, friendly people and a real cattle drive adventure.
