About Twin Creeks Ranch
Longhorns, Wildlife & Timber in the Heart
of the Sam Houston National Forest
Purchased as timber property in 2001, Twin Creeks Ranch has evolved into a vibrant family ranch with its share of show, rescue and ranch horses, friendly donkeys and of course, our celebrated Texas Longhorns! With the exception of the pastures and roads we've built, our ranch is covered in Lob Lolly pine plantations and natural forests with huge oak and magnolia trees. We manage the pine plantations with the assistance of a professional forester to ensure that we are good stewards of the land. Wildlife is also a priority for us. Texas Parks and Wildlife periodically evaluates the ranch as a habitat to determine if we are maintaining a healthy deer population.
Our cows freely graze in the pastures and forests of our ranch. Some enjoy a head-scratch and will eat cubes by hand, while others prefer us to drop cubes on the ground for them, and all have free-choice mineral tubs to supplement their nutrition throughout the year. The steers in our beef program are solely grass-fed and finished, receiving no antibiotics or growth hormones.
We love our gentle longhorns and from time to time participate in shows, futurities and auctions, but what began as a way to manage the 93% bull-calf season we had a few years ago has blossomed into a full-fledged grass-fed beef business. Grass-fed longhorn beef is among the healthiest meat you can eat; it is naturally low in fat, full of flavor, anti-oxidants and essential Omega oils. Our beef is available in a variety of avenues: farmers market, home delivery and shipping within Texas. For more details, check out the grass-fed beef info page.
