To arrange a guided tour, please email us at info@willowwittranch or call 541.890.1998. Tours begin at 9:00 AM and last 1-1½ hours; tours are suitable for all ages, and usually cover the farm and animals, history of the land and its inhabitants, and the restoration of forests and wetlands on the property. A tour of Willow-Witt Ranch brings together Southern Oregon's historic past, innovative present and sustainable future.

Our ranch is completely off-grid, powered by photovoltaic (solar) panels and a micro-hydro system. This land has been inhabited for millennia, with European American farming beginning in the 1850’s. You will learn of logging practices, animal impacts, wildlife and water tables in the past. A walk through the wetlands in restoration and the balanced forest will show you the possibilities of the future. With our small certified organic demonstration farm, we endeavor to create an alternative path for agriculture.

For a different experience, groups of up to six can schedule a 4-hour lunch day-hike with our pack goats. Join us as we pack up the goats with your food, water, jackets and seats and head up to special vistas on Willow-Witt Ranch or to nearby Grizzly Peak.
