Just north of Durango and along Highway 550, you will find the James Ranch. For over 50 years, the James Ranch serves their customers lunch and dinner with delightful meats, cheeses and vegetables they harvest on the ranch. They use organic, sustainable and grass-based practices for years which you will find in all the items they provide such as sauces and even pickles. If they don’t make it on the farm, they will use local items from the neighboring people.
The Harvest Grill and Greens is a fun family place to go. You can order any one of their freshly made sandwiches, burgers, bratwurst, salads and a kids menu to delight the little ones. While enjoying your meal, you can sit on the terraces which have amazing scenery of the ranch.
We found out that every Thursday in the summer (5-8pm), you can enjoy your dinner with the sounds of a live band. It cost $20 and includes a Harvest Grill Signature Burger (beef or veggie) with kids under 12 getting in free. They have tables, but some like to bring a blanket and sit on the grass. We enjoyed the Harvest Grill and Greens and the food was delicious.
