“This is a total privilege to preserve this land in perpetuity,” said Bart. “This land and this little chunk of heaven, as we see it, will last beyond all of us. That’s one of the biggest things we can do.”
The Open Cross Ranch has been in agricultural use for over 100 years and, with Five Valleys’ help, the landowners aim to keep it that way for centuries to come.
"'Protect what you love' means making the effort to preserve the amazing natural landscapes for our generation and those that follow. To run. To bike. To hike. To hunt. To fish. To birdwatch. To sit in solitude. To refresh and rejoice. To nourish our soles and our souls."
