The Vickers Hay Chronicles

Even better than promised in my discussion of workamping as a ranch hand for hay season, we are proud to present The Vickers Hay Chronicles … an independent short film trilogy:

 

A LiveWorkDream production. Playlist Run Time: approximately 15 minutes. Average Video Length: 4 1/2 minutes. Filmed on location in the upper meadows at Lake City, CO by René. Produced and directed by Jim. Executive Producer and Key Grip: Jerry G. Dawg. Made possible with a grant of the Vickers family generosity.

Meet the Vickers, five generations of hay farmers working the family guest ranch. Find out why 94 year old Perk calls workamper Jim by the name Boll Weevil. Hear Larry Describe what’s in the hayfield. See Paul and Jim find out the truth. And watch the youngest Vickers play in the hay.

  1. I remember several family vacations to the Vicker’s Ranch many years ago when I was a young boy. It was always a great place to relax, fish, ride horses, and just enjoy being with family. Haven’t been back in years, but maybe it is time to share that experience with my family. It appears that the traditions and hospitality of the Vickers are still alive and well.

  2. Loved the videos…. great music too..
