Brush Creek Ranch Announces New “Epicurean Retreats”

Brush Creek Ranch has unveiled new “Epicurean Retreats” at The Farm at Brush Creek. Over select weekends, until April 2024, guests will have the opportunity to delve into culinary topics from distilling to butchery, hydroponic gardening, farmstead cheesemaking, scratch baking and more for three all-inclusive nights and two hands-on days.

The new “Epicurean Retreats” take guests behind the scenes to learn about the inner workings of a sustainable cattle ranch. The retreats are all-inclusive for three nights, and include the following topics:

  • Farmstead Creamery (February 22-25; March 21-24) – The team at Medicine Bow Creamery will lead guests through the inner workings of Wyoming’s only Grade-A goat dairy and the step-by-step process of cheesemaking. Highlights include a meet and greet with the Ranch’s cheesemakers and the herd of goats; education of the breeding and raising of goats; the farmstead creamery process to craft cheeses; aging cheese gracefully; ricotta and rennet making; and hard cheese technique. The retreat rounds out with paired cheese and wine tastings, private Farm lunches, and gourmet Cheyenne Club dinners.
  • Seed-To-Table (February 1-4; March 28-31) – Discover the world of cultivating produce from seed-to-table—or to glass. Learn about the Ranch’s three greenhouses scaling over 20,000 square feet, its hydroponics gardening systems and its different types of environments for a variety of crops. The team will guide guests through seeding, planting, pruning and harvesting vegetables, fruits and herbs for peak flavor. Then, guests will work with the fresh ingredients to craft the ideal cuisine and cocktails.
  • Art of Bread (January 18-21; March 1-4; April 4-7) – This hands-on bread-making experience will lead guests through baking techniques as they master the art of sourdough, discover the world of pasty, and learn about dough lamination, as well as tips and tricks from the Ranch’s Pastry Chef Keisha Sanderson.
