We were raised in the west!
Hi, we’re Stu and Cyd Hoefle. When we purchased Raised in the West a year ago we never dreamed what a fun experience we would have with it. We have crisscrossed the state looking for unique stories and fun photo shoots and in the process have found so many awesome people: writers, photographers, advertisers and of course people that have stories to tell.
Cyd, as a fourth generation Montanan, raised on a ranch along the Yellowstone River, has a deep appreciation for families with roots; ranchers hanging on into the 4th, 5th and sometimes 6th generation, doing what they love to do; people that have endured difficult situations and have come out better because of them.
Stu is a true Montana outdoors man, he grew up hunting, fishing, hiking and enjoying every water and snow sport there is. He has an artists eye and captures with his camera what Cyd captures with her words. Together, they, along with a team of writers and photographers are intent on finding stories of interest that are entertaining, educational and enlightening.
