The History of
Rafter Eleven Ranch
& Prescott Valley
Starting with William and Carrie Fain in the 1870’s, four generations of Fains have been ranching and farming this land for their family, neighbors and the greater community’s livelihood. With almost perfect weather to both farm and ranch, the land gave them food and water, beauty and the desire to protect these resources for the future generations. While all four generational leaders of the family had other initial interests, they all came home to the land and cattle – the family’s destiny.
Today, the cattle ranching operation in smaller than in the past, but is still a large part of the family’s industries. We are developing even more sustainable practices including grass fed, free ranging cattle that benefit the consumer, environment and the livestock.
