Frost Ranch History

In 1958, Jon Wallace Frost II began building a ranch and home in the Fountain Valley…

Strong enough to support a family of 11.  Primarily focused on cattle and hay production, the Fountain Creek Ranch gave rise to multiple generations of agriculturalists. With a hand in environmental conservation, the Frosts continue to operate with a focus on local food and sustainability.

Today, the Frost Livestock Company is a combined ranching and farming enterprise that raises non-certified organic vegetables and grass/alfalfa hay on the irrigated parts of the farm and grass-fed and grass-finished lamb and beef in the irrigated meadows and upland pastures.  Our lamb and beef are free from hormones, antibiotics and corn; our fields are never sprayed; and our vegetable planting, irrigating, weeding, and harvesting are all done with a combination of holistic and traditional methods. .

We are committed to sustainable and regenerative practices and take pride in growing delicious, healthy, and sustainable food—including greens, beets, onions, potatoes, beans, leeks, chile, and ethically raised meats. We are a fourth-generation farm and ranch, with deep roots in local farming and ranching traditions and with lasting commitments to the future of agriculture in Colorado.

In addition to ranching and farming, the Frosts have developed a hunting club, the Frost Ranch Sportsmen Club.  The club is dedicated to offering hunting opportunities to members with an understanding for agriculture and sustainable game management.  Utilizing the Frost family home, the Big House, members can enjoy a comfortable, rustic stay at the ranch while sharing memories with family and friends.

In order to continue ranching and farming, the Frost family has opened its doors to the Big House, a 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom ranch house.  The house sits as the focal point for events of various sizes and overnight stays. In partnership with organizations like A Grazing Life, the Frost family intends to remain in agriculture and serve as humble land managers dedicated to holistic sustainability.
