Rod & Tanya were both raised in the Prescott & Dewey areas of Arizona and are raising their family there as well.  It has always been their dream to own and operate a working ranch, which has come true with a lot of hard work and perseverance. 

Settler Valley Ranch is comprised of approximately  4,000 acres, located in Dewey.  The ranch is a green ranch totally off grid & solar operated, proudly raising & providing all natural products for their family and yours.

Rod & Tanya raise Registered Miniature Hereford Cattle as a fresh source of naturally raised beef , and to sell to others who'd like to raise cattle, but prefer to deal with a smaller, more docile animal.  They are great for small ranches and farms and offer potential tax benefits for your small ranch or farm!*  They also raise Boer meat goats as a healthier alternative to other red meats as well as offering an environmentally conscious fire fuels abatement program providing fire breaks & defensible space in urban/wildlife areas without the unwanted impact of heavy machinery.

*Consult your tax adviser for your specific situation.
