The B & B Ranch Story
B & B Ranch, Guest House & Spa is a unique Country Inn established in 2012 by Barb and Babe Giombetti, to allow family and friends to gather, relax, enjoy, and to remember how things used to be.
B & B Ranch hopes to set an example of excellence in:
- Sustainable Agricultural Practices
- Heritage Preservation of Livestock and Poultry
- Hospitality, Cuisine and Camaraderie
- Healthy, Natural and Honest Living and Eating
We dedicate these efforts to a woman named Shirley Giombetti. Shirley was born on a small farm in South Canaan, Pennsylvania, one of eleven children - seven sisters and four brothers. They were all the children of Theodore and Theresa Casparo Marzani.
A deeply spiritual woman, Shirley drew inspiration from the natural landscape she grew up in. She was also a genuine and simple person who brought life to even the dullest situations. Her passion was for family, cooking and food and that was reflected every day, and at every holiday and family gathering.
Shirley’s resilience, patience, faith, optimism, generosity and kindness were an inspiration to all who knew her. She taught her own three sons this same deep love, endless hope, respect, faith in life and to seek desire for excellence through the power of reaching towards excellence, step by step by step. Our children are always the living symbol of the link between ourselves and the generations to come.
B & B Ranch, Guest House & Spa is dedicated to her memory and we’re committed to sharing her spirit and understanding with you. That’s how life was with her.
The Mad Magazine mascot, Alfred E. Neuman, once said: “We’re living in a world where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.” B & B Ranch is dedicated to seeing that that is not the world we leave to our children.
B & B Ranch's livestock are raised in open pastures at their natural pace, comfortable, happy, and without the stress, antibiotics and hormones of industrial farming.Our fruits and vegetables are grown naturally, without chemical pesticides. And we believe you’ll notice the difference in taste and texture.
We’re 100% committed to providing unique, premium products that nourish the health and wellbeing of you and your family. With no chemical preservatives, no MSG, no fillers, our products are exclusive and they’re always produced in limited quantities.
We raise everything we can on our premises, and what we can’t raise ourselves we purchase from local farmers who share our commitment to excellence.
Our passion for the land, hills, pastures and forests surrounding B & B Ranch extends throughout the ecosystem. We concentrate on sustainable forest, water, and soil conservation with the goal of creating a model that showcases not only the natural beauty and the delicious food, but also a self-sufficient life style, our heritage and something to be shared by everyone who visits.
B & B Ranch offers a chance to slow down, stop whatever it is you’re doing and devote some attention to yourself, in nature, to eating, and to really sharing good times.
We look forward to meeting you on the Ranch!
Barb & Babe Giombetti
