95 acres hosted by Heath M.
20 RV/tent sites
M-Rockin-C Ranch, owned and operated by retired US veteran, is raising egg laying chickens, pastured boiler chickens and has grass-fed beef (Brangus, Angus and American Wagyu) for sale. We are currently expanding our operations to include rabbits, turkeys, hogs, goats, and bees for local harvested honey in Houston County, Texas. All my poultry and livestock are free ranged and live on pasture supplemented with non-GMO feeds using no antibiotics or hormones. My goal is growing all the livestock in an environment outside where they can live normal lives eating bugs and grass, enjoying the sun and rain and through holistic management creating more sustainable pastureland for the future. Our main rule is please observe the ranch life. Do not harass the animals. We live in the country please do not be loud or cross outside of the ranch boundaries. My neighbors have lived here or moved here for their own peace and solitude as well be respectful of that and enjoy a brief stay in the country. The ranch is located in the Piney Woods of eastern Texas and consists of 95.26 acres mostly in open grazing land with dispersed pine and oak trees in small groupings and along the fence lines. The ranch has nearly a 1/2-acre upper pond and an elongated narrower close too 1 and a 1/2-acre pond below the upper pond to the west. There is a fenced in just over 1/2 acre area just north of the upper pond. The ponds gain water from natural spring flow and rainwater. Cook Creek runs through the entrance area off of FM 2022 on the northwest side of the property. The creek is year-round but normally is only a few inches deep but does have a few deeper pools of water. The ranch has about 65+ acres of gentle rolling hills of open pasture. The pastures consist of bahia, maxio and angusta ryegrasses, with mostly coastal grasses with some red and white clover mixed with natives. The ranch also has a diverse group of wildlife including but not limited to coyotes, white tail deer, roadrunners, racoons, possoms, wild pigs and hawks of different species. Several migratory birds and waterfowl also traverse the ranch during their travels north and south through the area. The night sky is amazing! If nothing else brings you here. You must come enjoy the view of the milky way and thousands of stars visible in our south-east Texas night sky. Photos of the night sky have been added to the listing... do not miss them! I really enjoy just leaning back in a zero-gravity chair and getting to view the sky when not looking through my 8in Meade Coma-Free Smith-Cassegrain telescope. I often have the scope setup and visitors are more than welcome to come view the wonders that our night sky has to offer on most clear nights.

M-Rockin-C Ranch
Our visit to M-Rockin-C Ranch was a relaxing sojourn in a peaceful, pastoral setting. Our kind host, Heath, welcomed my husband and I, and extended his immense hospitality upon arrival. We were toured around the property, and got to meet many friendly farm animals along the way. With over 90 acres of land to roam, you’re sure to find a great spot! There were several diverse, dispersed sites perfect for tent-camping or camper vans. Open, shaded, elevated, nestled, private, exposed, waterfront—whatever your camping preference is, M-Rockin-C Ranch has a spot to suit your needs. There were two lovely ponds on the property--- great places to enjoy a good book, throw in a fishing line, spot native wildlife, or even enjoy a ripe, American persimmon growing on the trees above. Our favorite part of our visit to M-Rockin-C Ranch was learning about Heath’s holistic approach to farming. Heath explained to us the importance of deeply considering the natural, native environment, and its denizens, when successfully approaching agriculture and livestock. His passion for responsible land stewardship and animal husbandry was inspiring. My husband and I learned so much, and gleaned a clearer, more nuanced perspective on organic farming practices. Thank you, Heath! If you wish to enjoy Heath’s ethically-raised offerings while you’re visiting, he can definitely set you up. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at M-Rockin-C Ranch. Heath’s knowledge and fantastic hospitality made the trip for us! Thanks!
