The Stephen Family Ranch is a working ranch that has been owned and operated by the same family for over 90 years. This land has been managed to produce cattle and wildlife. The entire property has been fenced and cross-fenced over the past decade. These fences were built to last a lifetime with close T-posts, enough wires to keep the calves in, and cedar staves to add to the durability. This cattle operation has been set up with thought to create the ability to run cattle efficiently. The 2011 fires boosted the native grass production with 50% of the ranch being affected. The remaining centrally located land contains mature woods and ample browse for the abundant white-tail in the area. Walnut Creek meanders through the ranch and provides towering oaks and elms for ideal turkey roosts. The part limestone bottomed creek runs seasonally with multiple holes of water as well as a backed-up portion near the barns. Several ponds survived the drought proven by the stocked bass and perch. All aspects of cattle ranching were thought of while creating the Stephen Family Ranch.

This area of the county has been producing oil and gas for many decades; several of the wells in this field have been shut-in with others still actively producing. Located on the property is a gas gathering plant and the gas company provides over a mile of all weather road through the middle of the ranch. This "Main Road" creates all-weather traveling that splinters off into smaller trails. Half of the owned mineral estate conveys at the right price.
