Manual labor is work done by hand that's necessary to get the job done. Everyday tasks, elements, and demands that are involved with manual labor is a challenge a lot of people are unfamiliar with. 

I created the Tough Rancher to bring focus to the hard work that goes into manual farm labor, to the work that is done in order to create and provide food and products for essentially the whole World. This challenge was crafted to show you a small portion of a farmer’s everyday missions and give you all the chance to experience that hands on.


An incredible 1st Tough Rancher in the books – Tennessee, IL

BIG support, energy, competition, sweat, and hard work was given by all. Thank you ALL who competed and cheered us on!


“I needed that competition more than I knew. While my mind was telling me I can’t do this, I was completely shocked by my performance! It gave me the confidence to push even harder now!” A.A.

“I loved the grit, encouragement, and the uplifting spirit we all gave to one another. It pushed me to keep going and not give up. I’ll be back for the next competition!” C.S.

“The worst is always the fear of the unknown. I wasn’t as out of shape as I had originally thought. Thank you for putting this together!” B.K.

“The group of people were nothing short of competitive, yet supportive. I learned that even though things have changed in the last couple of years, that I am still capable and can still compete at a decent level for my fitness level.” J.H.
