About Us

The Jenkins Family came to America from Wales in the late 1800's, and settled in Harney County to raise sheep and cattle. Today, it raises Hereford cattle on its Barton Lake and Diamond ranches, north of Steens Mountain.

The Experience

The Great West and its tales and legends of travel, struggle and adventure are part of the birthright of every American. Here in vast, scenic Harney County, Oregon, at the northern edge of the Great Basin, in the shadow of the Steens Mountain, there are wonderful sights to be seen and stories to be heard about our Western life and heritage.
