The Wellborn 2R Ranch is located just 2 hours northwest of Dallas in Henrietta, Texas. The combination of optimal cattle growing land and the accumulation of 150 years of experience allows them to produce the best, all-natural beef on the market.

3 days/nights
$1,500 per person

$500 deposit is required to secure your spot.
Limited to 10.

Wellborn 2R Ranch cattle graze on wide open pastures with cowboys on horseback taking care of their using sound stocking principles. They spare no expense to select cattle with superior genetics and insists on using specific care and feeding methods growing their beef the way nature intended - all natural with no hormones or antibiotics. Their beef is grass-fed and grain finished, which means cattle start out eating the native grasses of the ranch before grains are introduced into their diet to produce meat with the desired marbling and taste. With all the care and oversight each step of the way, the end result is high quality, tender, nutrient dense beef you can feel good about eating.  

We are putting on this extremely rare opportunity to not only learn how to cook on the wagon, but also use some of the best beef you can find on the market. We will go into depth on not only beef selection but the differences in grass-fed/grain-finished beef that is sure to have your belly excited. 

For the next 3 days and nights you’ll have the full experience of cow camp from your teepee accommodations to cooking in Dutch ovens over an open fire. You’ll learn recipes and tricks of the trade from a real chuckwagon team and a surprise guest chef. We will also be filming for future episodes of a cooking show.
