The ranch has a rich history of tradition. Put together by Jeter Arnold, it started out as sheep fold. Jeter's partner, Clark Harriman fenced the open prairie and began raising cattle. The rest is history. The Larson's purchased approximately half the original spread in 1991 and renamed it after the Apishapa River that runs through the ranch. They have modernize and regenerate the facilities and land.
