C Bar Ranch and Organics, LLC is a family-owned-and-operated farm and events venue. We are the fourth and fifth generation to work this land.
Many years ago, the pine forests of the property were used for the collection of tree sap that was transformed by State Rep. Jasper Harris into turpentine for water-proofing ships.
The land was later farmed and ranched by his daughter, Dorothy, and her husband, Roy Cellon. They produced cattle and vegetables, often growing potatoes for what was then called the Wise Potato Chip Co.
Now, ranch operations are run by their granddaughter, her husband and their children. Their mission is to produce fresh, healthy vegetables and fruits in a variety of sustainable and eco-friendly ways and humanely raise animals the way God intended. They aim to preserve the ranch and its bountiful natural resources for many future generations to enjoy.
The events venue recently was added to the property, so the family can throw open the barn doors wide to invite others in to enjoy a taste of rural life and all its wonders. Ray Holt, the farm manager, would be proud to show you around, and help you learn more about how and where clean food for your family is produced.
The farm, with its sprawling oaks and charming barn, provides the perfect backdrop of rustic elegance for a wide range of events--from country weddings, complete with a dazzling horse and carriage, to family reunions, corporate events, field trips, seminars, summer camps and more.
C Bar Ranch was named for the livestock brand of Roy and Dorothy Cellon, which appeared as a capital C with an underscore. The original branding iron is on display at the ranch, along with many other items of historical significance.
