Picture awakening in a luxurious ranch with breathtaking hill-to-water views as you sip coffee by the stream.

As Nature Intended

back to wellness

  • With no city or well water throughout the Ranch or the Lodge, refresh with rainwater for all your drinking and bathing purposes. 

  • We compost all organic materials to be reused in our garden.

  • Dine on seasonal farm-fresh vegetables such as tomatoes, squash, melons, garlic, and onions grown with our ranch-made compost. Our garden is pesticide-free.

  • Enjoy free-range eggs from our very own chickens who reside at the Ranch.

  • Walk along the river beds filled with primal, mineral-rich sand from ancient oceans (this part of Texas was underwater millions of years ago, and we have the clam, fossil-filled cave to prove it).

  • We currently use scent-free cleaning products.

All backed with scientific evidence for practical approaches to what works and what doesn’t work.

Join us as we explore outdoor living, wellness, nutritious meal planning, and unpack the six principles to “live long and well.”

“Happy wildlife brought me fun and healing. The hosts are caring and welcoming. It is a special place for family gatherings, field trips, or recharging weekends."
