About Us

We’re Ursula and Matt Johnston and we are the owners of Battle Creek Ranch. We have called Wells Gray our home for about 20 years. Horses, Ranching and farming have been our life for years. 

About 3 years ago we could make our dream of our own ranch come true. We have a small cow/calf operation here and also run a hay farm and a few head of horses. Professionally we both started out as farriers and we ran a horseback-riding company here for years. Life took us in a slightly different direction now and we are busy with ranching, farming, gardening and ride our horses whenever we can. We have a natural approach to work on our farm and are happy to share our interests with our guests. 

Ursula is originally from Austria and speaks German too.
