A gluten-free Week On A Ranch In The West Anyone?

14 posts in this topic

My wife and I recently returned from an extremely enjoyable gluten-free week on a guest ranch in Wyoming, actually on the WY/CO border between Laramie, WY and Ft. Collins, CO. The owners of the ranch, a mother-daughter combo are both celiac and devote one week per month to gluten-free clientel. We found this to be a really great experience on an authentic western ranch - been in the family since early 1900's and currently raises beefalo (buffalo/cow mix) and horses. There was plenty of horseback riding including excellent basic instruction for those new to horses (that's me), hiking, and mtn climbing for the more ambitious. This is not the typical "dude ranch" with all the phony "western exerience"; this is the real thing, very rustic and extremely friendly. We felt like we had spent a week visiting friends. It's a great place for those interested in experiencing ranch life in the real West including families with children interested in horses - and it's gluten-free!

You can check out their website: http://www.2bars7.com/ Also feel free to PM me for additional details.

I dream of opening such a place in Montana one day in the next five years. I'll check it out.

p.s. I don't live in Montana right now.

A couple of responses:

Susan,

The ranch has 7,000 acres so hiking is vitually unlimited. Even if you just hang around the house the scenery is outstanding and the hospitality is hard to beat. It's a very relaxing place. There was a family who were there for the week also and the father had had nothing but bad horse experiences and only came because of the wife and kids. After some very good basic instruction in horsemanship, the father ended up enjoying the riding as much as the rest of the family.

Jenvan,

Our trip was for two weeks. First we did the 2 Bars 7 ranch for a week, then went to Cheyene for the opening of their Frontier Days rodeo for one day. Then on to Cody, WY where we stayed for 3 days doing some extremely beautiful loop drives around the area but spent the most time in the Buffalo Bill History Center, a really interesting place if you have any interest in the history of the Plains and Rockies. Then on to Big Sky, MT for a couple of days via Yellowstone. After Big Sky we headed for home (Reno, NV) back thru Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, Idaho Falls, ID, Twin Falls, ID, Jackpot, NV, and home. We had a great time.

That sounds totally cool George! Glad you had such a great time and thanks for sharing. Next year is a 'lite' vacation year for us (meaning we'll be here in the states) so I found out about the only gluten-free B&B that only serves gluten-free food to everyone - Celiac or not. I've already booked our stay for next spring. Not only will I get gluten-free scones for breakfast (homemade) the host will tell us where to eat and what is safe for me to order - all at non chain places. Oh I'm so excited just thinking about it and it's 7 months away. It's the Chicken Paradise in San Antonio if anyone is interested. Dh is like why would you want to go there for vacation? I told him unless he wants to go to Spain instead he best let it go. Now he's excited too - lol!

your post made me so homesick! I am orginally from Buffalo, Wyoming, but lived in Laramie for several years before moving to Michigan in 1994. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. Brought back the past for me and really made me want to go home. The whole area is beautiful. There are some awesome ranches in the Buffalo, Sheridan wyoming area, but not sure of the gluten free aspect of them. My mom still lives in Buffalo and hope that I can get out there this fall.

Looks like I did a typo in my original post. The website address should be: http://www.2bars7.com/ For some reason the link I first posted worked orginally but clearly not now. If all else fails you can give them a phone call and they will send you a brochure describing their guest ranch. Their phone #: 307-742-6072. Their snailmail address is P.O. Box 67, Tie Siding, WY 82084 should you prefer to write for the brochure.

    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
    • Summer sausage, rope sausage or link sausage? what were the ingredients? Msg makes me dizzy.
    • I found it confusing as to whether this was gluten or free not.  However, I've not had gluten in two weeks now and had Hillshire Farms beef sausage this morning and my head is literally spinning.  I'm going to assume I shouldn't have eaten it.  It was good......but will avoid it from now on.
    • I've suffered with this for a very long time and never knew it was part of celiac. At age 13 I had the very first episode that I can recall.  Much later in life I had the bad peristalsis that accompanies celiac and would suffer for up to an hour after the initial symptoms began accompanying the D.  Mine would courteously wait until later in the mornings as I would get up at 4AM to get ready for work, and then it would burst upon the scene at about 7:30 AM with a vengeance.  Finally, 17 years ago, I did a search on my computer for causes for D and learned it could be caused by wheat, or celiac most likely.  Afterward I visited my MD who poopoo'd the idea that an adult could possibly have have celiac, her words "That's a children's disease".  She then sent me to gastro for a Sigmo, and it was then labeled IBS.   The symptoms continued until I got all the glutens out of my diet and then there was mostly quiet in my gut.  Then 10 years ago she sent me back to gastro to have a look at why it kept happening, had both upper & lower GI and the old Doc could not confirm anything as by then there was healing. Had it been caught back when I was 13, sure the food choices would have been plain foods instead of the cool pies and cookies offered at home, but better health. BUT, yes Night D does accompany celiac disease.
