Small Farm & Ranch Resources

Texas is experiencing a change in land ownership.

These new landowners purchase rural land without the benefit of the basic understanding of farm or ranch management. They often don’t know where to seek managerial and technical assistance. Texas Farm Bureau has defined a small farm or ranch as “a property of one hundred (100) acres or less on which the owner/operator has been an active producer of commodities for five (5) years or less.”

The Texas Farm Bureau Small Farm & Ranch Management Committee’s mission is for the organization to become the leading referral source for small farmers, ranchers and rural landowners in Texas.
