About John

John with baby chicksJohn Raftery is a Chicoan, but has spent some time all over the west during his early twenties. Now a bit older (not that much), he has settled back into his hometown. Part of his preambling around the west had him living for a time in New Mexico. Here he developed a love for the old time vaquero culture. In short, the cowboy bug bit him.

After his return to Chico, he was determined to make something of his cowboying dreams. Unfortunately for him, he ran into Tyler.  Tyler was the guy who showed how he could harness his love for ranching culture and merge it with the realities of ranching. Soon after that fateful meeting, Barbarosa Ranchers was born.
