Meet your local rancher:

My name is Leigh Anne, I'm 28 years old, and I own and operate Go West Ranch.  In addition to taking care of all the day-to-day tasks of running a cattle ranch, I am also a Structural/Wildland Firefighter with the Touchet Fire Department (Walla Walla County Fire Protection District #6).  I believe in being honest, ethical, compassionate and professional.  

I've always had an interest in crops and cattle, and received my first hands-on introduction to the farming industry as a 13 year old kid driving tractors, changing siphon tubes and damming ditches on a neighbor's 200 acre corn/hay/barley operation in Colorado.

A few years went by and we moved to eastern Washington; we initially raised alfalfa hay on our new farm, which was a good educational experience for me, but it lacked the acreage and equipment necessary to be worthwhile.  I overseeded the hay fields with orchard grass and started my venture into the cattle business the same way a lot of young ranching entrepreneurs do: with one cow.

Fifteen years later, with a lot of advice, encouragement and help from local farmers and ranchers, plenty of live and learn experience, and the best customers any business could ask for, Go West Ranch looks forward to serving you locally produced beef, "from our field to your table"!

By the way, this would be a good place to mention my big brother, Ben, of Walla Walla Web Solutions, who designed, built, and maintains this website... From myself and all of Ben's happy current and future customers, a big thank you goes out to our Colorado neighbor, Irv, for all the not-so-wonderful farming experiences Ben had while working for him, including work beginning at 5:00 am (not a good time for a night-owl), and that hilarious little incident when Ben was driving the tractor with a pipe trailer hooked on the back and nearly took a bridge's entire concrete guard railing out of existence.  (Yep, I do believe you made the right career choice, bro!)
