Our visit to O’ Keefe Ranch was a first-time ranch experience for me and my girlfriend, Chelsea. Leaving the sounds of the highway behind, just north of Vernon, B.C., and stepping onto the soft dirt pathways of the working historic ranch was such a refreshing experience.
A day of fun activities was planned for us, which we happily took on with newbie gusto! We learned so much along the way, from how to drive a stagecoach, to blacksmithing, to everything there is to know about the O’Keefe family who established the ranch in 1867 and celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.
Strolling through the old homestead under big shady trees and past heirloom plants and flowers was so relaxing. We had a gorgeous, hot June day to learn about the ranch and it couldn't have been more perfect.
Every person working at the ranch was so pleasant; it was plain to see they love working here. You could see their passion not only for the ranch, but for its fascinating history.
