La Joya Dulce is in good hands! The Crabb family -- Ryan, Mandy and their two boys, Wyatt and Weston -- brings knowledge, experience and energy to our ranch. Ryan is head law enforcement ranger at Steamboat Lake State Park (about 15 miles north of La Joya Dulce), and Mandy is our on-site wedding manager. As an added bonus, Mandy offers makeup consultations for your ranch wedding on your special day. (Click here to check out Mandy's website.)
It is our good fortune that the Crabbs recently returned to the Steamboat area after a stretch in southern Colorado.
Our caretakers are present during all events and provide security, emergency and logistics support for us. Even Wyatt gets into the act -- when he first arrived at the ranch, Ryan asked him what "La Joya Dulce" meant, and he said "Wyatt's office." Wyatt wears many hats at the ranch -- cow hand, sheriff, and most importantly, big brother!
