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.

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.
