Introduction to Forage

Grand Prize details: The Circle Z Ranch in Patagonia, Arizona, has jumped on board as a Contributing Sponsor. Owner Diana Nash has donated an incredible, four day ranch vacation for two to the Summit. It’s valued at over $3,000 and includes horseback riding, lodging in their Casa Rosa cabin, and gourmet meals each day.

Circle Z Ranch, “where authentic tradition meets unspoiled adventure”, is a guest ranch with horseback riding as the principal planned activity. All-day rides, team penning, games on horseback and a Saturday picnic ride are common occurrences. The mountain scenery is enjoyed on slow or medium (loping) rides along our varied trails. Our 165 miles of trails go through wild and rugged canyons, over high and rocky ridges with breathtaking vistas and along the ever flowing and verdant Sonoita Creek, which runs year-round through the ranch.

Hiking and excellent birding are always at hand, and the ranch has a tennis court and heated pool for all to enjoy. A championship golf course is located nearby.

Owner Diana Nash writes:

The crackle of a campfire. The creak of a leather saddle. Rugged vistas without end. Welcome to Circle Z Ranch, a vacation experience that will envelop you in a time and place when days were spent on horseback and nights under a blaze of stars.

Our all-inclusive Arizona dude ranch vacations are memorable experiences for our guests. Our historic ranch is nestled in Southern Arizona’s Sky Islands, known for its vast grasslands and vaulting mountain ranges. Guided by expert wranglers, you will explore trails across thousands of acres ­so scenic they’ve been the setting for many Western movies. Back at the ranch you can partake in other outdoor activities or join guests, fireside, in our rustic lodge. Meals are cooked from scratch using locally grown ingredients.

This is ranch life at its best. An experience that keeps guests coming back time and time again.

Thank you, Circle Z! We can’t wait to award a lucky winner in October.
