The Carver Bowen Ranch was established in Glennville, California in the early 1870’s. There are seven generations who have lived here and raised their families along with their cattle. Each succeeding generation learns from the knowledge, successes, trials and challenges of previous generations. Knowledge of the land, the cattle, the flora and the fauna is shared, discussed, debated, and allowed to soak in like a good rain into the very pores of each generation. An appreciation of the land, the water, the forage, the trees, the wildlife and the seasons permeates all who call the ranch home. It is a tremendous gift to live so close to nature, to appreciate her beauty, and to cooperate with what she offers by way of challenges and blessings.
Living this legacy is humbling and instills a determination to make things better than you found them.
