We Have What You Need
Fishermen, hunters, hikers, and mountain bikers have long known the natural beauty of this area. We’re steeped in Western history and lifestyle. We are fortunate to enjoy fresh air, elbow room and four distinct seasons with an abundance of wildlife, wildflowers and recreational opportunities beckoning avid photographers and outdoor enthusiasts all year long.
Custom Beef and Quality Hay
Our cattle operation is the heart of the Flying R Ranch. We raise black baldy, red Angus, black Angus and Hereford cross beef cattle, utilizing the nutritious orchard mix grass we grow in the Ranch pastures. Our custom beef can be grained if desired.
The same grass mix pastures our cattle enjoy are utilized for our haying operation here in the Dolores River canyon. Our high quality orchard grass mix hay is weed free and suitable for horses, too. We take care to store our hay out of the weather to preserve the quality of each 2-string 50-75 lb. bale.
We’re Easy to Find
Redburn Flying R Ranch is located on Colorado Highway 145 on the scenic San Juan Skyway, 16 miles northeast of the town of Dolores in Southwest Colorado. We are surrounded by the San Juan National Forest and flanked by the rugged red Wingate sandstone cliffs of the Dolores River Canyon.
Head north out of Dolores toward Telluride. We’re just a short, scenic drive up the Canyon, on the right side of Highway 145 on the way to Rico.
