Chief Joseph Ranch in Darby, Montana is a real working ranch. However, you may have heard it called Dutton Ranch.
The ranch has become a popular destination for fans of Paramount Network's original series Yellowstone.
The Chief Joseph Ranch is a family-owned ranch. Shane Libel, owner of the ranch recently sat down to explain the things that happen on the ranch outside of filming for the popular TV series.
The most surreal thing in the world, and the most humbling thing in the world is when you're sitting in your own living room watching a show that's filmed in your house.
Libel says that hundreds of people stop by the Chief Joseph Ranch to take pictures of the Dutton Ranch sign popularized by the show featuring Kevin Costner. The sign is left up year-round, and most people just snap a picture through the gate.

The ranch is run as a guest ranch from June through August where you'll find horses and cattle. The family also sells hay that is grown on the property.
When Shane Libel and his family first purchased the ranch, they did a lot of renovations including the kitchen and mudroom.
The Chief Joseph Ranch is a real working Montana ranch. All of the timber and stone used in the construction of the ranch were sourced from the property itself.
Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of season 4 of the popular Paramount Network series which is expected to be released sometime this fall.
