Flying O Ranch
Home Sweet Home
Where the sky is bluer and the grass is greener
On February 15, 1989, under the auspices of California’s Williamson Act, the Flying O Ranch's developers entered into an agreement with Madera County that created 34 contiguous, 40-acre agricultural preserves on about 1,400 acres of grazing land in the Sierra Nevada Foothills between the old California townships of Coarsegold and O’Neals. That's a mighty long sentence and a whole lot of numbers. What's unique about this agreement is its eco-friendly design and careful execution. These landowners could have hacked their property into seven-acre, three-acre, or even one-acre “ranchettes,” set up a system of paved roads and community utilities, and raked in substantial profits—as have countless other rural developers. 
Welcome to our version of Shangri-La: a 40-acre island of (relative) serenity in a 1400-acre sea. Protected by miles of dirt road, security gates with ever-changing codes, and forbidding signs, we have fallen off the GPS map. We wind down the hill 2.5 miles to pick up our mail and consider ourselves lucky when the UPS truck finds its way to our door.
