The prime ranch land is part of the original Davis Family descendants.

Features and Activities
Improvements: 8-strand barbed wire fencing along parameter and cross fencing, less than ten years old. The excellent fencing allows for grazing of cattle, sheep, goats and horses. There is also a panel working pen setup for livestock management.
Grasses: The ranch owners have supplemented native grass populations for optimum production that provide food, habitat and protect from erosion.

There is a 30 acre field of improved Coastal Bermuda for hay production.
Wood: The wooded portion of the property has mature Post Oak and Live Oak standings. Dry and seasonal creeks run through the wooded areas and cool season grass mixes are planted in the shady areas. Heavy hard wood areas provide coverage for wildlife such as whitetail deer, turkey, dove, quail, feral hogs and other native Texas game.
