Call Me Crazy

Difficulty Ranch is a family-run cow-calf ranch located in Mountain View County. The La Brie’s have been growing as a family with Difficulty Ranch for over 5 years now. At the heart of the ranch and the family is Dogpound Creek, providing the LaBrie’s with a good place to enact their stewardship ethic.

“I am raising my children to grow up like I did… riding horses, chasing cows, playing in the creek and eating dirt. I don’t think this is crazy. The crazy part is hoping that my children can grow up to be small cow-calf producers too and not succumb to the big production farms and urban sprawl. The crazy part is hoping that the way we raise our beef and take care of our land has value to you.”
