Welcome to the website for Shap’s Ranch. We’re a family farming operation that converted to 100% organic farming in 2010 and have been producing corn, beans, cereal crops and pumpkins since 1978. We recycle nutrients back into our farm from waste products derived from the operation. For our off-farm inputs, you can read about our fertility program here: http://www.genesis.ag
Come Visit The Farm
We do farm tours daily M-F from 11 – 1 p.m. except on major holidays. You can check out the entire farming operation. If you’d like to book an outing for your class or field trip, or are coming with a group of greater than 15 please let us know in advance so we can accommodate your group better
We’ll be running the Shap’s Patch again this year from Oct 7th through Halloween — the pumpkin patch that’s perfect for kids and kids at heart. He have a scarecrow, apple cider picked and pressed from the orchard on site. Hayrides Friday and Saturday at dusk are available for older kids (12 and older) or children accompanied by an adult. Make sure to bring something warm to wear.
We have active hunts on the ranch during both turkey and deer season. Deer hunts are guided by Jervais and can accomodate a maximum group of 5, so make sure to book early! Turkey season is a great time had by all. Don’t worry if you’ve never hunted turkey before. John teaches classes on turkey calling, setting up a blind and afterwards we can even clean and dress your bird so you can bring it home for a proper Thanksgiving feast.
