2012 Land Report 100: Malone Mitchell 3rd

No. 20 Malone Mitchell 3rd

350,000 acres

In the Big Bend country of Far West Texas, many an iconic ranch has gone the way of the cattle drive. Not so at Malone Mitchell’s Longfellow Ranch. The Oklahoma State alum has resurrected a nineteenth century ranching empire that was founded just west of his hometown of Sanderson. The tiny town of Longfellow took its name from the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The Longfellow name was then bestowed on an ever-expanding ranching empire that grew out of the rich native grasses of the Chihuahuan Desert. Today, Mitchell’s ranch has built its reputation on world-class hunting: mule deer and whitetails, aoudad, javelina, turkey, dove, and blue quail. In addition, Longfellow Ranch boasts a herd of more than 800 elk, a rarity in Texas. In 2009, it was selected as winner of the Lone Star Land Steward Award.
