About The Ranch
Howdy, Friends and Family

It's is a real-working cattle, hog, and sheep ranch that has expanded its operation into equine (and, in our case, all terrain) adventures. It’s perfect for the whole family to get unique, hands-on ranch experiences and to have some fun!
We want to share our beautiful ranch with you. And after years of working, development, and growth, we can finally provide you one-of-a-kind experiences & memory-making moments on horseback and Ranch participation tours! We know from experience that there is nothing more exciting and wholesome than a day at the ranch, especially when you’re actually able to participate as little, or as much, as you like! Just know that, at the end of the day, you may have had more fun working your way to a much-needed shower (which we have on site) than you’ve had in years!

working Cattle Ranch
When our family found this land in February of 2012, we immediately fell in love. My father, Raul, told us that if God would grant us the land, he would truly consider it a gift. The word Callidora means "gift of beauty” in Greek. The name today serves as a reminder to us that this land and all of the ranch facilities—our labor of love—were first given to us as a beautiful gift of God. Over the years, we’ve researched and developed a vision to go from just a working, sustainable livestock ranch to a truly exciting, yet peaceful getaway! And what began as an overflow of joy to share with our immediate friends and family, is now something special that we can also extend to you.
We’ve been blessed to raise Black Angus cattle on our family ranch for 9 years now. And like God intended, they live naturally. Our cattle happily roam our expansive Georgia range from calving until harvest. And while supplemental growth hormones in cattle have been shown to pose no risk to human health, we prefer to let nature run its course when it comes to delivering superior Georgia beef. We are committed to following humane handling practices for our herd every step of the way, from calving to processing.
By allowing our cattle to mature on nature’s schedule, we’re able to give you the perfect amount of marbling in each cut of beef with the unmistakable flavor that grain-finishing delivers.
We offer our ranch raised beef in quarter, half, and whole bulk beef sizes for pick-up in Georgia and boxed ground beef collections that ship from the ranch right to your door. We ship every Monday and we offer free shipping in Georgia, or flat rate shipping for all other locations.
