Rafter Eleven is the name of our family ranch. My great-grandfather, Dan, bought the land and named it Rafter Eleven (because it felt like home). He than began our legacy of ranching in the early 1900s. The ranch sits at the base of Mingus Mountain in Yavapai County and today we have about 500 head of cattle. Bill, my Dad , a rancher, a business-man and the visionary behind Prescott Valley is the very embodiment of everything that is Rafter Eleven. His Dream was to create a Town, this town, and provide opportunity for everyone in it. The Rafter Eleven brand is the actual brand my Dad put on every single cow and today is a symbol of quality in a home-like environment.
The owner calls herself a rancher's daughter at heart. She created Rafter Eleven in the heart of Prescott Valley for three reasons; First to honor the past because where the Rafter Eleven store sits today used to be part of the original ranching land. Secondly to pay tribute to her father for providing the Rafter Eleven Legacy: which is Honesty, Integrity, Effort and to provide opportunity where we live. Lastly, to create a place where community could truly connect! The Rafter Eleven brand holds great meaning for Dawn. The Eleven represents the pillars of this community: those who laid the foundation before, the Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Prescott Valley, the Visionaries and the Ranchers. The Rafter, (or the roof-top), is the piece that Dawn is creating; a place where Prescott Valley can bring their family and friends and connect - A place of great quality, amazing coffee, incredible olive oils and balsamic vinegars, exquisite wines, in a beautiful space-that feels like home to everyone who comes in!
