Join our ranch team in the Beartooth Mountains in Wyoming, 5 miles from the Montana border
A traditional Wyoming ranch owned by the same family for five generations. Used by the owners for recreation and relaxation. The ranch also grazes horses and cattle and raises hay.
Three small ranches run as one ranch. The ranch crew works together to care for the ranch and it's owners. Living on this remotely located property offers a unique experience in the wild Wyoming landscape. The ranch is remote, so crew must enjoy a quiet setting. It is a beautiful mountain location with access to thousands of acres of private and public land for hiking, fishing, and riding.

About B4 Ranch
An old traditional Wyoming ranch owned by the same family for five generations. Used by the family for recreation; hiking, horseback riding, fishing and camping. The ranch also grazes horses and cattle and raises hay on the many acres of irrigated pasture land.
The Employee Experience
The ranch is very busy during the summer season. The extended family that owns the ranch is excited to come every year, they are proud of being stewards of such a lovely place. The ranch crew is here to provide exceptional care to the ranch and it's owners.
Among the crew, lifelong friends are made here by shared unique western experiences:
- The small crew that keeps this operation going is a tight knit ensemble. Everyone comes with their own responsibilities but the "whole picture" effort is shared as a group. Crew members relax with: eating meals together, sharing daily chores, helping each other in random but important ways, and in recreation, making new stories and hearty laughs.
- A crew member lives on the ranch and becomes part of the unique Greater Yellowstone ecosystem. Exposure to all types of wildlife; predators, large game animals, raptors, song birds, waterfowl, small mammals and fish (to name a few) can be a daily experience. When new crew arrive, we share first how to live safely in this environment.
Weekends or days off can be spent on the ranch or: in Yellowstone, or surrounding public land access. Or in town: Cooke City, Montana, is fairly close near the NE entrance to Yellowstone; Cody, Wyoming and in a different direction Red Lodge, Montana are each a 1.5 hour drive from the ranch.
Working and living on this remotely located property offers a lifetime of unique experiences in the wild Wyoming landscape. Employees have to be mature self- starters for personal recreation and entertainment, there is no built-in closely located social life. Outdoor enthusiasts/recreationists will do best. All ranch work requires flexibility in each day's agenda. Being a team player and having good communication skills are necessary to create a great season for this traditional family ranch.
