Farm & Ranch Logo

The Happy Cow Ranch, encompassing ±100.3 acres in Medina County, offers the ultimate in privacy in an area where the Brush Country meets the Hill Country. The ranch, situated between Hondo and Tarpley, fronts County Road 232, which abuts FM 462, providing easy, year-round access. The land rolls gently. Its pastures are a mix of native and improved grasses. Live oaks, cedars, persimmon trees along with scattered small mesquite provide shelter for wildlife and livestock alike. Unlike many Hill Country properties, the Happy Cow Ranch provides pockets of tillable soil and the current owners have carved out two, ±2-acre fields used alternately for wildlife food plots and livestock grazing. The ranch, which maintains its agricultural tax valuation, is cross fenced into three pastures ranging in size from about 20 acres to about 40 acres. Each pasture has a water trough serviced by underground waterlines originating at the ranch’s single water well that also supplies the home. Traditional ranch roads provide access throughout. The Happy Cow Ranch, which has only been hunted by family and friends, is primarily low fenced. It is home to native whitetails that benefit from year-round free choice 18 percent deer protein and whole cottonseed. The region abounds with free-ranging exotics including aoudads, fallow deer and axis deer that make periodic appearances on the property. The 3-bedroom/2-bath triple-wide mobile home encompasses about 2,400 square feet of well-appointed, highly livable space. The home includes a large kitchen, formal dining room, living room, and office area as well as a spacious laundry room with a utility sink that also serves a mudroom. The master bath features a garden tub and a walk-in shower. In addition, the home is surrounded by expansive porches. One stretches along the entire back of the house, while the another, outfitted with ceiling fans, covers the front. The porches are the perfect place to start your day with coffee and the sunrise and end your day with a chilled beverage, the sunset and good conversation. A variety of pipe-constructed pole barn forms the base of the ranch’s infrastructure. The array includes: a new livestock shelter that is approximately 14’ x 18’, a barn that measures approximately 40’ x 100’ with a concrete-floored tack room, another barn of the same approximate size, and a barn that is approximately 30’ x 50’ outfitted with a full RV hook-up. The ~12' x 32' "she shed" offers a world of possibilities. A set of piped-and-paneled livestock working pens rounds out the infrastructure. For those looking to enjoy the best of country living, the Happy Cow Ranch offers an oasis of peace and quiet where elbow room abounds. To experience Happy Cow Ranch for yourself, contact Conner W.
