L-J Ranch is home to LePlatt’s Pond and nestled in the heart of the Pine River Valley in Bayfield, Colorado. For over sixty years, this working cattle ranch has been providing the community with the high quality Natural Beef and other treasures. We specialize in growing premium mixed grass hay, and pride ourselves in selling all of our harvest locally. The 2011 season brought L-J Ranch a new adventure in growing hops. We have worked with local colleges and breweries learning how to grow hops in Colorado. We are also becoming well known as one of the most beautiful Colorado Wedding Venues. The 100 acres of green meadows, tall cottonwoods, rambling streams, and crystal clear lake, otherwise known as LePlatt’s Pond, creates the perfect setting for those larger than life moments. Please visit our website for more information about L-J Ranch and all that we do!
