The May 2020 issue of Nebraska Farmer features Logan and Brianna Pribbeno of Wine Glass Ranch.
Pribbenos featured in Nebraska Farmer magazine
Imperial native Logan Pribbeno and wife Brianna were recently featured in Nebraska Farmer magazine.
Pribbeno, a 2002 graduate of Chase County Schools, wrote an article for the magazine, which is how the magazine ended up contacting him for a profile.
The article on the Pribbenos was about their operation, Wine Glass Ranch, north of Imperial.
Wine Glass offers farming, ranching, cattle management services and natural resource management.
“I felt pretty cool being able to share with that audience,” Pribbeno said. “I’m thankful it gave me the medium to express my ideas.”
Wine Glass Ranch strives to be the premier grazing option in Chase County.
“We travel all of Chase County, grazing different areas for different people and at different times of the year,” Pribbeno said.
Wine Glass also serves Perkins and Dundy counties.
“I do think we are trying to go on a larger scale than a lot of guys,” he said, “but honestly, I think it’s the future.”
“There’s just a lot more specialization and there’s just a lot more farmers that don’t own any animals anymore,” Pribbeno added.
Wine Glass is a multi-generation operation, starting with an 1888 homestead by Pribbeno’s great-great-grandparents, Sherman and Susy McCoy, and originally named the Lonestar Ranch.
The ranch moved to Pribbeno’s great-grandparents, A.O. and Mary Stenger, and eventually to Pribbeno’s dad, Jeff.
Per suggestion from his dad, Pribbeno went to school in California, where he met Brianna, a native of Huntington Beach, California.
Pribbeno said he’s happy to be back in Nebraska.
“I’m happy to be here,” he said. “Partly because the fact that there are just a lot of people from my class and it just makes it even more enjoyable.”
