The TF Ranch in Firth, Idaho currently is home to 4th, 5th, and 6th generation ranchers. The ranch was founded in 1860 by Nels Just who emigrated from Denmark and made his way across the country pushing a handcart. He arrived in Idaho a few weeks before President Lincoln declared Idaho a territory. He took advantage of government programs such as the Timber Culture Act, and the Homestead Act, to deliver his dream of raising a family on his own land. He was entrepreneurial, raised cattle, crops, co-owned a bank and a canal company. He and his sons quickly became known in the region for their innovation in irrigation, a skill that has blessed the land and future generations through today.
