The JX Ranch Bunkhouse is located on our 7,000-acre cattle ranch, which we manage holistically, meaning as a whole. We rotate the cattle in one herd through the 26 pastures, giving each pasture on average 100 days rest with 5 days grazing in-between. This promotes a healthy strong root system and healthy strong grasses and other forbs. We raise all-natural grass-fed beef which we direct market to individuals. You can read more about this on leannaturalbeef dot com.
The ranch is 20 miles south of Tucumcari (on Route 66 / I-40). This is ranch country, so no stores, gas station, people or traffic. Gorgeous star filled sky at night! Better buy what you need before coming out. You have privacy and solitude. We welcome you, explain what you need to know, and leave you alone, but are mostly available if you need anything.
The old Bunkhouse consists of two separate rooms; the Longhorn Room is the larger of two. It can sleep 3, has a neat old rock fireplace, a well stocked kitchen area (fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, pots pans etc.), bathroom with the original claw-foot tub. The smaller the Cow Camp Room has 2 beds, and also a similarly well-stocked kitchen. Both rooms have their own entrance. There is a connecting door between them that remains locked unless guest want to rent the whole Bunkhouse in which case it is left open. This is an old house, and not a shangri-la. It's a bit rough around the edges, but it's the real deal.
