Episode 70: The Cows and The Horses

Almost halfway through our journey, we found a place where it would be easy to never leave.  The beauty of Montana is stunning, and the approach to ranching at J Bar L is inspiring.  Situated on 30,000 acres in one of the most important wild life corridors in the country, this ranch tries to replicate the bisons’ role in this habitat.  The result is an area packed with wildlife, fertile soil as well as a healthy and delicious meat.  AND the folks who run this place touched our hearts and became our friends.

    I am a contributor to your project and one of the reasons why I enjoy your work and your videos is that after watching the videos I can tell that my oxytocin levels are rising and I am momentarily at peace. Thanks.

    Second time I’ve watched this episode… second time it has brought tears to my eyes.  Such a wonderful sight to see people handle animals with such grace and compassion.   When I feel down and out with what go’s on in our country and world, I know I can come to Perennial plate and feel good again.
