Beverly Cox

Did you know?

Beverly lives on the same Colorado ranch where her great grandfather homesteaded. To reach the ranch today, you first have to travel along more than 20 miles of dirt road.

Beverly and her husband, Gordon Black, an architect turned rancher, live on the historic Eagle Rock Ranch in Northern Colorado where her great grandfather homesteaded in 1872. They recently completed a new ranchhouse, which fits in with the other outbuildings, where Beverly plans to teach hands-on cooking classes for small groups who want to combine cooking with the experience of visiting a working cattle ranch.
