TK Ranch

Not in Calgary for the May Long Weekend?

If you want to place an order, but can't make it for pick-up on the long weekend, we can hold your order at our new facilities just outside of Calgary for pick-up after that date. That way you can check out our new property and see what all of the fuss is about on TK Ranch. Maybe even try some of our new products under development. 🙂

  • Place another order and we will combine them when we fill the orders for that week, or;
  • If what you would like to add is less than our minimum order ($50), please contact us and we will update your order and send you a confirmation email.

Experience the breathtaking beauty of TK Ranch by following my husband Dylan's photos on Instagram. He updates the site almost daily so you can keep in touch with what is happening here. We hope to develop calendars and sell framed prints in the future — so please stay tuned.

Spring and babies are synonymous on TK Ranch. Both calving and farrowing are in full-swing and our mare Tango, seen at center above, blessed us with a beautiful leggy filly two weeks ago. We have two more mares expecting, including Nevada seen above at right. So stay tuned for more pictures! The large Ducks Unlimited dam below is located on the south end of our ranch and offers lots of habitat for wetland birds (and endless photo opportunities for my husband).
