The locals used to celebrate the annual return of the turkey buzzards with a Dutch Oven picnic. The M Diamiond Ranch is reviving the tradition on March 29 with Turkey Buzzard Day at the M Diamond Ranch featuring horseback rides, an authentic chuck wagon dinner, and live entertainment by Hall of Fame country singer Alvie Self, the Verde Valley Fiddlers, and Lyn and Ken Mikell, also known as “Harpy Trails”.
The festivities start at 3 PM with one hour horseback rides available for adults and kids. The chuckwagon dinner will be served at 6 pm but you may want to arrive early to enjoy a simple selection of beer and wine (cash bar) and watch the Dutch Oven cooking. The menu is tri tip beef, cowboy beans, potatoes, salad and peach cobbler.
Horseback rides are $75 for adults and $55 for kids 7 to 12. Dinner is $56.
