Teamed with Mike Sloat
Northrup Pipe Creek Ranch, a 5,000-acre property located in Bandera, Kerr and Kendall counties near Pipe Creek, Texas, is a slice of paradise. The headwaters of Pipe Creek burble forth from the ground and seep from the surrounding limestone outcroppings before flowing southwestward into the Medina River. Year-round springs feed eight lakes. The road winds down into the valley where cattle and horses graze in verdant pastures.
In addition to abundant wildlife and game, the ranch offers excellent habitat conducive to three endangered species: the Golden-cheeked Warbler, the Black-capped Vireo and the Tobush Fish-hooked Catus. Realizing that successful management requires sound decisions and a holistic world view, the family has turned their attention to environmental concepts proposed by Rhodesia-born Allan Savory and his Center for Holistic Resource Management. According to the model, decision makers simutaneously consider economic, social and environmental consequences, both short and long term, emphasizing land management practices that mimic nature.
For the hunter or nature lover, Northrup Pipe Creek Ranch offers private ranch vacations, weekend getaways, corporate retreats, special event hosting and exclusive hunting trips.
