Because we value our relationship with our community so much, as a Texas-based company, we take great pride in our Lone Star Russets, grown on part of the original XIT Ranch. What’s the significance of the XIT Ranch?
Back in 1875, the Texas Constitutional Convention set aside 3,000,000 acres as payment for the construction of the Texas State Capitol. Covering portions of 10 counties in the Texas panhandle, these acres became one of the largest ranches in the world, the XIT Ranch. Serving as home at one point for more than 150,000 head of cattle and 150 cowboys, the XIT Ranch is a great source of Texas pride that continues on in our Lone Star Russets.
