The 6666 Ranch is under contract for the first time ever. All three divisions of the 6666 Ranch sold to Yellowstone Creators Group.
Sam Middleton of Chas. S. Middleton and Son LLC said “Sheridan is the face of the buyer group the new owners plan to continue running the working ranch and to offer employment to all employees. It’s all one deal, 266,000 acres with all three ranches . . . cattle, horses, equipment, furniture, brand, name, everything.”
Taylor Sheridan was contacted via his manager by the Texas Spur Newspaper said, “I can’t comment on a pending transaction but I will say this: the legacy of the 6666 Ranch and Miss Marion’s vision for the ranch are vital not only to the ranch itself, but the rich heritage of ranching in Texas. This legacy is so important to me I chose to highlight it in the upcoming season of ‘Yellowstone’ and will continue to further the legacy and preserve its operations in a manner consistent with that great vision.” (Direct comment from Taylor Sheridan gathered by Texas Spur newspaper.)
“Being one of the largest ranches in Texas, the 6666’s Ranch comprises 142,372 acres, more or less. To put this massive ranch in perspective, the ranch encompasses almost 225 square miles of land. The ranch generally measures approximately 20 miles long from north to south and around 12 miles wide from east to west.
“Approximately 1,000 acres of the ranch are in cultivation and farmed on a dryland basis. This land is typically farmed in wheat for seasonal grazing. Approximately 700 acres have been reseeded to improved bluestem pasture. The remainder of the ranch, being over 140,000 acres, remains in native pasture.” -Chas. S. Middleton and Son LLC
