Cross E Ranch is a family owned, 200 acre farm just North-West of Salt Lake City. We specialize in year-round festivals, education and raising pure-bred Black Angus beef. We are 5th and 6th generation Utah farmers carrying on the agriculture legacy which was left to us by our fore-fathers. Our primary mission is to educate our neighbors and friends about where food comes from and how important farming is to each of our lives. We also provide lots of FUN! We work hard but we also believe in enjoying what we do. We figure… we educate, nourish, and entertain at our unique ranch. We are always cattle ranchers/farmers and seasonally we become entertainers! We have festivals a few times a year: baby animals in the Spring, sunflowers in the Summer, and a corn maze and pumpkins in the Fall! We sell the amazing beef we raise and we are slowly adding veggies and other farm products. There is always something cool going on at the Ranch!
Farming in the city poses many challenges but we are ready for those challenges! We know it is important for people to have a connection with agriculture. We need to know and teach our children where our food comes from. We want to keep farming and share with others why it is important and why we LOVE it. Everyone loves the feeling of being on the farm; it is peaceful and feels natural. We want everyone to be a part of that! Each year we have something for each season. The ranch is different during each season and merits it’s own celebration: Baby Animal Festival, Sunflower Festival, Fall Festival, and Christmas at the Ranch . Our dad David Hinckley followed his family’s legacy and farmed his whole life. He passed that on to us. We love this little ranch right here in Salt Lake City and hope it becomes a place everyone can connect with agriculture and have a great time! From our family to yours we hope you love Cross E Ranch!
Amazing Evening at Cross E Ranch!! Their baby animal festival is sooo fun. We got to see calves, pigs and piglets, horses, all sorts of goats, bunnies and llamas!! My family and I went on an amazing hayride through their acreage to see all their cattle. We were able to see so so many baby calves and even got to witness a brand new baby calf trying to stand, still all slimy wet with umbilical cord hanging. Such a phenomenal experience!! Go check them out, you won’t regret it!!
We spent hours there for the baby animal festival. Totally amazing. All the baby animals were so dang cute. I wanted to take them all home. Had so much fun with the Easter egg hunt. All of the staff was super friendly. Food was yummy it was all around a great time. My kids didn’t want to leave. Can’t wait to go back. And can’t wait for the fall festival!!
What an amazing experience! This family ran farm gives you such an incredible, personal experience! The owners are truly the most compassionate and kind people you will meet. Our daughters were able to bottle feed calves, milked a goat and got to ride a horse. This is truly an amazing place! It would be the ideal place for events, weddings, portraits, etc. I HIGHLY recommend visiting! Thank you!!!
