About Torino Ranch

Torino Ranch – home of the Brett Torino Foundation – is a sprawling sanctuary of nature that rests inside the pristine and untouched land of Lovell Canyon. Designed by Brett Torino himself as a tribute to his love of the natural world, Torino Ranch features two lakes, hundreds of trees, a garden greenhouse, an outdoor amphitheater, an outdoor pool, dozens of cabins, and an ornately designed lodge with a commercial kitchen. It is the result of decades of planning, construction and community partnership.

History of Torino Ranch

Torino Ranch sits on land that has a diverse and fascinating history dating back to the original inhabitants, who were Paiute Indians.

The vision of the Brett Torino Foundation, in addition to sharing the magic of nature, is first and foremost to preserve it.

Summer Camp Programs

Every summer since 1994, Torino Ranch has opened its door to a multitude of children and adults in need. The laughter of children who are critically ill and physically or developmentally challenged fills the Ranch with immeasurable joy.

Buddhist Monks

Buddhist Monks

Every summer Torino Ranch hosts approximately a dozen Buddhist monks for a period of two to three weeks during a portion of the summer program. Their visit is a part of a cross-country trek by the monks to spread joy and zen to the staff, children, counselors and volunteers who tirelessly facilitate the camp experience.

But there's so much more to our story. Not only do we nurture the land to grow fruits and vegetables sustainably, but we also host camps for critically ill and special needs children, creating moments of joy and connection. πŸŒˆπŸ‘«πŸŒ»

Our bees are an essential part of this ecosystem, pollinating our crops and giving us their precious gift of honey. 🍯🐝

Watch as our dedicated beekeeper checks the hives, explains the art of knowing when it's time to harvest, and shares fascinating bee facts. It's not just about honey; it's about creating a harmonious balance in our ranch.
