About Cody Holmes

Author Cody Holmes
Cody Holmes left home at age 17 with his high school 4-H project of seven cows. That project grew into the Rockin H Ranch, a diversified ranch, on-farm market and agritourism business. The ranch has supported as many as 900 head on 3,400 acres. Cody and his wife, Dawnnell, open up their ranch to the public and also run Real Farm Foods Farm Market, an on-farm store offering retail sales of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, eggs, milk and seasonal produce.

Cody, by tapping the knowledge of wise mentors, has connected the dots between soil and human life – bridging the gap to sustainable stockmanship on his farm. Cody speaks and writes frequently about his passions – cattle, soil fertility and his holistic, grass-based ranching system.
