Rafting and Ranching

ACES partners with Aspen Whitewater Rafting to offer an exciting afternoon on the river followed by a farm tour at Rock Bottom Ranch! Beginning with a thrilling trip down the Middle Roaring Fork, a Class II section of the river that is ideal for families and children, the group will then make its way to the Ranch for a guided tour of the farmyard, gardens, and wildlands. Families will learn where food comes from while hearing about our vegetable production and livestock rotational grazing system. Keep your eyes open on the river to ask our Ranchers and Naturalists about the many riparian species in the area such as great blue heron, beaver, and birds of prey!

Around the Ranch
There is so much new life on the Ranch at this time of the year. Aside from the thousands of new vegetable plants eagerly awaiting their chance to hit the ground, we’ve got newborn piglets, chicks, rabbit kits, and lambs. I personally am most excited about the new lambs and ewes that just came on to the property a few weeks ago. They are a unique breed called Katahdin Hair Sheep.
