C-C Ranch


Red merle ABCA border collie male cow dog


The C Bar C is a working ranch located in Danville, Alabama.  We own 100 acres and are surrounded on three sides by Bankhead National Forest.  So we are blessed with peace and quiet and nature. The ranch hands are me, Carrilea Littleford, my brother, Chris, and our father, Jim.  The focus of the ranch is raising food for the family while NOT going financially in the hole.  Much easier said than done, but with lots of hard work it can be accomplished.  We have dabbled in many adventures but currently run a small herd of feeder calves during the summer months and nurse calves through the winter.  Chris is also raising hogs to sell for meat.   In doing so, we periodically have free range beef and pork for sale.  We also have a few yard chickens and sell free range eggs.  We raise and train AQHA, as well as APHA horses, and try to keep one, really good, broke horse for sale.  Then, there are the border collies. We focus on ABCA registered dogs that will work cattle. They help manage the livestock and of course provide the farm dog companionship.  We have a couple litters a year and enjoy every minute of it.  I work full time for our local power company and manage the livestock part of the ranch.  Chris works full time for a crane company and runs a portable sawmill/horse logging operation on the ranch. So, you can imagine, we stay very busy.  Chris and I would both like someday to not have to work outside jobs and just make our living off the farm.  Jim is retired and is the fix-it man/gardener.  He always has a project going from building furniture out of lumber from Chris’s sawmill to rock smokers for family gatherings to picture frames.  Without him, the ranch would not function.  He is a very important part of it.  If you are interested in any of the above things, feel free to roam the website or contact us or come by!

Have a great day!
