Welcome to Pendleton Ranch in Gainesville, Texas!

Although the ranch has been here for more than a hundred years, we have been caretakers of the land since February of 2014.  In that time we have done much to restore the land to its former beauty by reestablishing pastured animals that produce meat or fiber.  As we have worked to clear the land of invasive species of plants through organic and sustainable practices, we have had one thing in mind - establishing good pastures that will produce healthy animals, tasty meats and eggs, and beautiful fibers.

At Pendleton Ranch, we raise CVM/Romeldale sheep for wool, and Dexter cattle and Large Black/Red Wattle hogs for meat. We have pasture-raised eggs year-round and turkeys for sale in the fall.  We focus on raising heritage breeds of animals that are listed by the Livestock Conservancy as endangered or threatened.
