The Wolf Creek Ranch is a historic working cattle ranch located in the Indian Valley in Plumas County, California. Comprising almost 591 acres, the ranch consists of about 337-acres of irrigated meadow and about 254-acres of forestland. Currently, the property is being used as a seasonal cattle ranch running approximately 160 cow/calf pairs from mid-May to mid-November. Water on the ranch comes from Wolf Creek which runs through the northern and northeastern boundary of the property. There are adjudicated water rights that are used to flood irrigate the meadowlands. Homestead in the 1850s by the Italian-Swiss Guidici family, the ranch farmstead retains structures dating back more than 130 years. Centrally located on the ranch, the farmstead includes a farmhouse, which has been extensively restored, one additional residence, and various outbuildings. This farmhouse is thought to be one of the first built in the Indian Valley, the original homestead of the Guidici family. The property is known for its rich native wildlife with migratory birds, large mammals, and native plants. The property is in the Williamson Act and Timber Preserve and has a Conservation Easement for the protection of the ranch’s grazing uses and related conservation values.
