Welcome to Elkus Ranch
Vote for Envirotokens!
It's that time again! Please go to Vote for Elkus at New Leaf and select the Half Moon Bay store. Then vote for Elkus Ranch along with 2 other favorite local non profits. Your vote will help us continue to be a recipient of New Leaf's Enviro-tokens program. Each month we receive a check based on the number of green tickets shoppers place in our box in the store when they bring their own shopping bags. These checks are often enough to feed all of our chickens, purchase new straw bales and shavings for bedding, or buy powdered goat milk for our 2 goat kids who need a bottle. Thanks for voting!!
Located on the California coast near Half Moon Bay, Elkus Ranch Environmental Education Center provides unique hands-on learning experiences for Bay Area children. The Conference Center is available for daytime retreats, meetings, workshops, weddings and other special events.
Staff from the University of California Cooperative Extension facilitate hands-on opportunities for children from preschool through high school to explore the processes of producing food and fiber in day and overnight ranch tours, nutrition programs, community service days and special events. Livestock, gardens, and acres of open space create unique learning experiences for children and their adult chaperones. The ranch is specifically dedicated to providing these opportunities for children with special needs and all facilities are fully accessible.
