WC Experiences

Wheatland County Tourism Initiative

Muirfield Lakes Golf Club

Start your tour with a round of golf at the beautiful Muirfield Lakes Golf Club.

The club offers a challenging links-style golf course for the most discerning golfer, while also very accommodating for the occasional golfer and those just learning the game.

The course is a par 70, 6,400 yards and you will be challenged by multiple water, sand, and tall grass features; however, the unprecedented prairie and mountain views will take your breath away!

Four Sisters Farm

Four Sisters Farm is focused on providing Strathmore and area an opportunity for up-close, hands-on educational, social, and overall unique experience.

EH Farms

Eh Farms is a family-owned, local Wheatland County pig farm specializing in the unique Red Mangalitsa Heritage Pigs. The Mangalitsa is one of the last breeds in the world to sport a wooly coat. They are also known as the ‘Kobe beef’ of pork. Having and raising them on our farm is my dream come true. Many don’t understand the dedication and care that goes into raising livestock. Sharing my story I hope to educate everyone about life on the farm and the vital role agriculture plays in their lives.

Experience the farm in person!
