Garrett Ranch

2015 Landowner of the Year - Casper Region

Landowners: The Garrett Family

The Garrett Ranch is located 30 miles south of Casper, Wyoming in Natrona County. Pete’s Father (Labon Garrett), Grandfather (Henry Garrett) and Uncle (Adron Garrett), bought the first 2,000 acres of the ranch in 1937. 
The Garrett Ranch operation involves the entire family including Pete and Ethel Garrett, their children and grandchildren. Each family has a residence on the ranch and all are actively involved in the daily operations. The ranch family includes their son Steve, his wife Kim and son’s Tyler and Dalton and their daughter Laura and her husband Jack Miles.

The Garrett Ranch has employed numerous stewardship practices on their deeded and leased lands for the long-term benefit of their lands, their livestock operation and wildlife habitats. The Garrett’s have long been enrolled in a rotational grazing system designed in concert with natural resource professionals for the benefit of their rangelands and wildlife habitat. The ranch has implemented three innovative stewardship practices that include utilizing beaver and installing “insta-dams” to restore riparian vegetation and slow erosion within the Bolton Creek watershed, applying Plateau® herbicide and using a naturally occurring soil bacterium to control cheatgrass infestations, and installing several miles of wildlife friendly fences to create smaller livestock pastures.
Congratulations to the Garrett Family as the recipients of the 2015 Casper Region Landowner of the Year Award!
