Here at the Santa Fe Ranch we inspire people and create opportunity in our community by providing hands-on experiences in nature via high quality outdoor education and agriculture programs.

The Paula and Cabot Sedgwick Family Foundation, dba The Santa Fe Ranch, is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to environmental conservation, preservation, education, and agriculture to promote healthy, active,  conscious living in Santa Cruz County, Arizona.
The Santa Fe Ranch consists of 3,300 acres of valleys, mesas, mountains and river bottom alongside approximately one mile of the Santa Cruz River.

For many years the Santa Fe was owned by the Sedgwick family who operated a cattle ranch on it.  Today, thanks to the generosity and vision of Paula and Cabot Sedgwick, the Santa Fe Ranch is dedicated to advancing agricultural and environmental research and to providing active, hands-on, educational, out-of-doors opportunities to community members.
