About Ed Roberson

My name is Ed Roberson, and I’m a Colorado-based ranch broker specializing in the sale of investment-grade recreational, conservation, and agricultural ranches throughout the American West. I also work as a land conservation consultant, managing conservation projects for Rocky Mountain land trusts. As a side project, I host the Mountain & Prairie Podcast, a popular show that features long-form interviews with innovators of the American West.

I’m fortunate to enjoy a huge overlap between my personal and professional interests. I love spending long days exploring private ranches and public lands, as well as studying the economic, ecological, and historical attributes of western landscapes. My volunteer activities revolve around land conservation, with a special interest in the role working ranches can play in the preservation of western communities and ecosystems. I push myself hard in endurance sports, having climbed some of North and South America’s highest mountains and competed in 50 and 100-mile ultramarathons through remote regions of Colorado. Any down time is spent reading, particularly nonfiction related to history of the American West.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find the blog and podcast informative and entertaining. To collaborate on ranch marketing, conservation consulting, podcast partnerships, book reviews, speaking engagements—or if you just want to say hello—don’t hesitate to send me an email. I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
