Fifty miles from the closest town, the Dickinson family lives and works on their family-owned cattle operation in the southwest corner of Wyoming. Fifty miles from anywhere, the Dickinsons raise cattle, build a family and count their blessings. Marc, Gerda and children, Kate, Ira and Ian Dickinson are a close-knit family, built on strong values that are long lost from today’s busy society.

The children are home-schooled on their family’s ranch, working outside between class lessons to earn their own calves to show in 4-H. The children take part in every aspect of cattle production – branding, weaning, sorting, shipping, daily chores and fixing fence. The family’s cattle business has been around since the late 1800’s, and today there are still three generations working side-by-side on the ranch.
