With an interesting start in the dinner theater business, Blazin' M was founded after the Maberry family spent some time using the land as a cattle ranch then organic vegetable farm. Making the most of their land after crops were washed away in 1993, they decided to build a frontier town, which could host a dinner and stage show. After you enjoy a chuckwagon dinner in the barn, get ready for entertainment provided by the Blazin M' Cowboys whose show combines live music and hummor.
