A Day at Schmid Ranch


As part of Heritage Fest, see the historic Schmid Ranch on Wilson Mesa for free: tours, hayrides, farm animals, demonstrations, cowboy coffee, fresh lemonade. Pack a lunch, bring the kids and visit a Colorado Centennial Ranch (just ten minutes outside of Telluride). Click here for directions to Schmid Ranch.

The Schmid Family Ranch is a Centennial farm on Wilson Mesa, about ten miles west of Telluride, Colorado. The ranch has been in operation since the family homestead in 1882.  The family works with the Nature Conservancy to preserve the entire ranch through a conservation easement. Today, the family's wish is to share this unique property with the community while maintaining a way of life that honors the land.
