1,301 Acres - Jolly Ranch (Additional Adjoining Acreage Also Available.)


Located in North Central Texas, Clay County, three miles northeast of Jolly, Texas on Taylor Road.


Jolly Ranch is an exceptionally clean and ready to utilize cattle ranch located three miles northeast of Jolly, Texas, in the heart of ranching country. The 1,301 acres consists of pristine rolling native grass prairies with a nice, hardwood tree lined, wet weather creek running through the center of the property. The main entrance to the property features a large set of pipe working pens with livestock scales and loading ramp. Besides the water along the creek, the ranch has eight beautiful livestock ponds across the property. In addition, rural water is supplied by Dean/Dale Water District for all season reliability or to supply a new structure. In addition, two non-operational windmills have the potential to supply additional water to the southern portion of the ranch. Thick hardwoods of pecan, elm, and cedar elm provide lots of shade for cattle, as well as plentiful cover and food sources along the creek bottom. With minimal hunting pressure surrounding the property, it’s not uncommon to encounter whitetail deer, turkey, and wild hog along the creek. Bobwhite quail populations have remained strong due to the thick stands of native grasses and dispersed plum thickets across the ranch. Great care has been taken to eliminate over-grazing throughout the property, as stocking rates have remained low enough to protect the lush grasses. These grasses include thick stands of native grasses and improved grasses such as Blue-Stem and Bermuda along the ranches western edge. The property has been cross-divided into 6 pastures ranging in size from 160-1200 acres with smaller gathering traps for rotational grazing and easier gathering. This would be an ideal ranch for new or addition to any cattle operation. Property access is quick and efficient with all-weather county road frontage along Taylor road. This is just a short description of the Turkey Creek Ranch; one must view this property first hand to truly appreciate all this ranch has to offer.
