About Covered Bridge Ranch

Covered Bridge Ranch is a family owned and operated ranch situated in the productive valley of Southwestern Colorado at the base of the San Juan mountain range. We are located near Montrose, Colorado and home to Colorado Conifers wholesale and retail tree nursery and Christmas tree farm.

Throughout the year, we welcome the public to our scenic 300-acre ranch for festive events such as the popular family traditions, Christmas Trees at the Covered Bridge and Pumpkins at the Covered Bridge.  In 2020 Holiday Season we were proud to be the choosen supplier of Christmas Trees for our Nation's Capitol! 

Hay and grass-fed longhorn cattle are also available at the ranch—there is much to be discovered here!

Covered Bridge Ranch was created by Gary Riessen as part of a 60 year career in the tree farm industry and his eldest daughter, Natalie Riessen with 12 years in the industry.   

The entire Riessen family can be seen during the Thanksgiving weekend opening of Christmas Trees at the Covered Bridge.  They join other families in creating family traditions around those special family holidays and events.
