About Us

Here are some of the hardworking people whom you may meet on the ranch.

  • Ian Powell (Owner)

  • Rachel Powell-Valensky (Operation Manger/Wedding Coordination)

  • Valerie Capri (Wedding/Events)

  • Carrisa Adams (Wedding/Events)

  • Josie Anzilotti-Batis (Booking/Reservations Manger)

  • Nathan Valensky (Grounds Manager)

The property is located on 40 acres, and several of those acres are devoted to a beginning farm, called Yokayo Roots Farm (more info here), which uses draft horses. Over time we’ll be developing a farm to table produce option for guests of Yokayo Ranch. 

The Yokayo Ranch property was purchased in order to support a budding farm. Income from weddings and events helps to pay for farm costs. Every year, Yokayo Ranch hosts a few farm events including the Good Farm Fund fundraiser, and Biodynamic Association of Northern California winter meeting. 

Please contact us to schedule a tour or if you are interested in the farm or job opportunities here at the ranch.
