More about B Bar Ranch

B Bar Ranch is nestled among the 10,000-foot peaks of the Gallatin Range in the Tom Miner Basin, which sweeps from Yellowstone National Park’s northern boundary to intersect with the fabled Paradise Valley. The ranch’s nine thousand acres of open meadows, forested hillsides, riparian areas and mountainous wild lands provide excellent habitat for the region’s renowned wildlife species, including grizzly and black bears, elk and moose, wolves and coyotes, and countless varieties of birdlife. The ranch is a place of spectacular beauty, and committed to protecting its unique and extraordinary landscape.

A working ranch since 1906, the B Bar today provides summer range for the ranch’s herd of Ancient White Park Cattle, irrigates two large pastures, and puts up hay each year (once providing superior hay for Kentucky’s race horses). We feature organic grass-fed grass-finished beef from our cattle for our guests and for sale along with maintaining an intensively-developed landscape at ranch headquarters.

Historically a working ranch, hunting lodge and retreat, today B Bar Ranch welcomes a wide range of guests including events for selected non-profit groups, workshops and retreats, weddings and reunions, as well as board, staff and patron meetings. The guest facilities accommodate up to 40 guests and include a rambling lodge with a dining room, large living room, and three suites, six cabins overlooking a pond and an additional four vacation rentals with spectacular views to mountains and the valley beyond.

From time to time every employee may be asked to perform jobs other than the job for which s/he was hired. This may happen to fill in for illness, or during particularly busy or slow times.

Getting here and getting around

Because of our relatively remote location, we encourage employees to have their own vehicles, but it is not necessary.

For fun

Outdoor recreational opportunities on the ranch and the surrounding wildlands of Greater Yellowstone include hiking, fly fishing in the world class Yellowstone River (at the turnoff to the ranch), and exploring Yellowstone National Park just 40 minutes away. If you enjoy the outdoors, the mountains, and the likelihood of seeing everything from grizzly bears to wolves to moose to elk herds that number in the hundreds all from your front door and backyard, B Bar should be on the top of your list when deciding where to work this summer.
