Activities & Amenities
This remote area of California was first visited by westerners back in 1828 when Jedediah Smith explored the area. It's mild weather, abundant fish, wild game and fertile land supported Native Americans in the area for the previous 6,000 years. The Greenleaf Family has been the stewards of this ranch since the 1950's. If you want to go back in time, this is the place. The improvements include 3 houses and 3 guest cabins all with modern amenities and all impeccably decorated to please the eye and sooth the soul. With over 136 acres, of which over half is cross-fenced pasture, some old growth timber and its improvements that you would expect in a 100% sustainable working cattle ranch. The improvements include a massive hay barn, calf barn, huge chicken coop, fruit trees, blacksmith shop, workshop, tool shed, and fenced garden area. The main two story Pensylvania Style log home has been carbon dated back to 1856, built from hand-hewn logs, stacked horizontally and joined by notched ends with an adobe chimney. The owners have maintained the excellent water rights from Hayfork Creek as well as gravity fed spring water for the houses. This ranch has all you need to grow and raise all the organic food you will need; as it was back in the early pioneer days. Situated in the heart of the Hyampom Valley, the ambiance is both serene and peaceful; absolutely no traffic noise and the rarely used but nicely maintained airport provides good access if needed. If you are looking for inspiration, or just an authentic working ranch to hang your hat, the Greenleaf Ranch will not disappoint.
