Pettee Ranch is historically the Hall Ranch. Homesteaded in 1907, this ranch was the cow camp of the day. Located south of the mining town Fairplay, the ranch was ran by Charles L. Hall whom later became the sheriff of Park County, CO. Today, many of the original outbuildings still exist. Pettee Ranch, the name, was founded in 2005 by Steve Pettee jr. Steve purchased his first yak in 1999, starting with 3. Steve's daughter Daniele (Garner) Pettee took over the ranch with her husband in 2014 and has since developed the yak program into a local agricultural business comprised of over 70 head of yak.
