All About Us

Monarch Springs Ranch was founded in 2019 by Cindy and Joseph Tempesta with a single mission: Create a sustainable, private, gated, tiny home pocket community on our 20 Acre Wildlife Preserve.

With an abundance of butterfly and wildflowers the ranch also has deer, birds, water fowl and a fully stocked pond to enjoy.   As we neared retirement we wished to return to the simple life and embrace a sustainable lifestyle with a strong sense of community--Monarch Springs Ranch was born.
