Come tour the Double Check Ranch. This modern working ranch in Winkelman, Arizona raises all-natural grass-fed beef in a way reminiscent of a bygone era. See how nature can be appreciated and utilized to define a rich, sustainable and productive landscape. Join owner operator Paul Schwennesen for a walking tour of the pastures and livestock operations to witness both cutting edge and traditional management practices in action (intensive rotational grazing, large-scale composting, biodiesel generation and savanna management). Afterwards, we will take an exclusive tour of the renowned Fremont-Gooding gallery forest along the privately owned banks of the San Pedro River, one of North America's top biological hotspots. A meal of all-natural grass-fed beef and local fare will be served al fresco while we enjoy delightful October weather. Transportation from the Garden departs at 6:30 a.m. and returns at 5:30 p.m.
