The San Benito Connection

Experience The Country

We very much believe in the philosophy that it takes a village to do anything, and there is no better resource than our local community.  This page is a way for us to get to know one another and find out how we can support our neighbor.  Anyone in the county who is offering a country experience and drawing in tourism may participate, please send a brief business profile and logo (or related image) in order to be added to this page.  Try to be brief and stick to the subject lines so that the listings will remain similar in scope.  Please send all information to Rebekah@BarSZranch.com.

Local Travel

Tourism and travel make up nearly 8% of the U.S. GDP, and not only is there a lot of money spent every year in California but a quarter of it comes to our target market.  In 2016 travelers spent $34.5 billion in the Bay Area and a total of $126 billion throughout California.  The Pinnacles travelers spent approximately $6M in 2017 which is a number that we would all like to see grow over time.  San Benito County has a lot to offer and together we can make this a stronger destination for tourism, let's show them our country culture.

Bar SZ Ranch

We are a hospitality guest ranch with accommodations for up to 50 guests in beds.  We host friends, families, company events, campers, and weddings.  Aside from a place to sleep we offer a country experience that is unique to almost any other rental.  Our business model closely resembles a dude ranch but with a different structure.

Our mission is to serve each guest who walks through our doors with old-fashion hospitality and a unique country experience. 

Our guests are welcome to feed and groom the animals, collect chicken eggs, go horseback riding, learn to rope, practice archery, take a hayride, go skeet and trap shooting, explore the creek, hike the vista, play games, BBQ over oak, sit around the campfire, roast s’mores, soak in the stars, learn to line dance, and more.

Community Connections
1. We are always looking for interns who'd like to work on the ranch to gain experience.  More specifically we are looking for young adults who have a passion for the ranch lifestyle and are looking develop their skills.  What we aren't looking for is young adults with no direction in life who are simply looking to pass the time and loaf around.  

2. We also are looking to collaborate with neighbors in order to offer a more farm-to-table experience for our guests.  We are busy with the ranch side of things and don't have any farm products to offer.  We'd like to offer local meats, cheeses, honey, soaps, wines, etc. and believe our guests are equally interested.  But, we aren't quite sure how to make this work.  Please reach out if you have any suggestions.   

3. Often times guests are looking for local vendors who cater, play music, drive shuttles, or offer a unique skill.  We only do business with licensed vendors, let us know if you think advertising your services to weddings and/or company events onsite would be mutually beneficial.
