SHIP TO SHORE cattle company

Our family purchased 192 acres in June 2010, as a long-term family investment, with the goal of restoring the land to a Native Prairie, for the benefit of the native wildlife, like the Bobwhite Quail, and our own enjoyment. We plan to share our ranch, in several venues, including photography, nature trails and natural horse boarding.

Prior to our ownership, the property had been used for cattle grazing for decades. Though we will no longer use the land for a commercial cattle operation, we wanted to honor the history of the land when selecting a ranch name. We combined the land’s history with our own generational family history in the maritime repair industry, resulting in the name Ship to Shore Cattle Company. We do hope to have a small herd of naturally lean-beef Longhorn, once our restoration is complete, keeping the cattle tradition alive.
