The Gearhart Ranch has been in continuous operation as a cattle ranch since it was founded in 1890, and the values and traditions remain the same today as they were a century ago. Located 30 miles west of Fort Davis in Jeff Davis County, the ranch sits amidst the sky island ecosystem of the Davis Mountains, which benefits from higher than average rainfall for the region.
Gearhart Ranch has all of the necessary improvements for running a successful cattle operation, with headquarters located near the Scenic Loop frontage and excellent interior roads throughout the ranch. Vegetation consists of productive grasslands and mesic habitat at higher elevations, and includes various species of large game animals and birds for wildlife enthusiasts.
The ranch utilizes a holistic livestock management plan to preserve the integrity of the grasslands and enhance the soils with essential nutrients, and places great emphasis on protecting the area’s natural resources. With stunning vistas, beautiful West Texas sunsets, and peaceful nights to observe the stars, Gearhart Ranch will capture your affection and remind you of simpler, bygone times.
