A must for those road-tripping the San Juan Skyway, the family-run James Ranch, 10 miles out of Durango, features a market and an outstanding farmstand grill featuring the farm's own organic grass-fed beef and fresh produce. Steak sandwiches and fresh cheese melts with caramelized onions rock. Kids dig the goats.
Burger and band nights are held every Thursday from July to October. There's also yoga hosted on the terraces in summer. A two-hour farm tour ($25) is held several times per week in summer.
