Stewart is the owner of the grill, which cooks up meals with the ranch’s cheese, produce and meat products. The families at James Ranch have long had the desire to make the ranch a place where people can learn where and how their food is produced, Stewart said. They have since become a model of agritourism in the area.

Joe Theine, left, said he comes to the James Ranch Market just about every week. Theine and his son, Connor, 5, dropped by to pick up some bacon and bratwurst on Saturday afternoon. The market allows people to get involved and learn about the food they buy, said Cynthia James Stewart, who does marketing for the market, among her other tasks.
