In the heart of Yavapai County, Arizona, a significant stride was taken toward environmental stewardship and sustainable agriculture. The Orme Family, custodians of the historic Orme Ranch, announced in August the establishment of a Conservation Easement over nearly 1,000 acres of their land. This decisive action was supported by the Central Arizona Land Trust, reflecting a commitment to protect and preserve the scenic beauty and agricultural heritage of the area.

The easement ensures that these lands remain untouched by development, safeguarding them for sustainable agricultural use. This initiative not only preserves the natural landscape but also maintains the ecological balance, contributing to a healthier environment. It stands as a testament to the Orme Family’s dedication to conserving the land for future generations, ensuring that the ranch continues to foster a harmonious relationship between farming and nature.

Behind this monumental decision lies a story of passion, dedication, and a vision for a sustainable future. KB Woods had the privilege of capturing this inspiring journey in a video back in 2019. Our team, led by Keith Woods, Max Woods, and Anthony Canales, brought to life the essence of the Orme Ranch’s commitment to conservation.

We invite you to watch this video below, which beautifully depicts the Orme Ranch’s journey toward sustainability and preservation. It’s a story that resonates with the importance of protecting our natural heritage for years to come.
