The Eco-Cowboys: Big land buys signal greens are moving into ranching

If you’re going to to break into the cowboy business, this is as good a place as any to do it.

The historic Kane and Two Mile ranches on the Utah-Arizona border not only take in 850,000 acres – most of it in the form of federal grazing lands – but also some of the most flat-out astonishing scenery in all of the American West. Head south through the pines and meadows of the Kane Ranch and visitors are eventually deposited on the rim of the Grand Canyon.
