The Lazy J2 Ranch is a 6000+ acre working cattle ranch with a 200 head capacity between the deeded property and the USFS allotment.
The Lazy J2 is in the center of the San Rafael Valley. The valley is a high Sonoran grassland of gently rolling hills, towering cottonwoods and ambling river beds and tributaries that run during the monsoons, and make-up the watershed for the head waters of the Santa Cruz River.
Since 1995, the Lazy J2 Ranch has been the home of one of Arizona’s premier grass-fed beef businesses, San Rafael Valley Grass-Fed Beef. SRV Beef supplies beef to the University of Arizona, local restaurants, health-food stores, farmer’s markets and families in southern Arizona.
