Think you could make it as a rancher? How about upping the ante and considering yourself the owner of a major ranching operation consisting of over 260,000 acres, and being the boss of 20 full-time cowboys, plus even more seasonal employees? If so, then the historic 6666 Ranch is exactly the way to turn the fantasy into reality.

Gas up the truck and plan a viewing. The ranch is nearly two hours from Lubbock, a 3-hour drive from the Amarillo airport, and about four hours from Dallas-Ft. Worth.

After 150 years under the ownership of one family, the three properties of 6666 Ranch (pronounced Four Sixes) are for sale, per Lubbock brokerage firm Chas. S Middleton and Son. The ranch is on the market in accordance with the will of owner Anne Burnett Marion, who passed away on February 11, 2020. Marion’s grandfather, Captain Samuel “Burk” Burnett, founded the ranch in 1870 before he turned 20 years old with 100 head of cattle, then went on to expand his operations.

Located in King Country, the Four Sixes Ranch is 142,372 acres, over 140,000 of which is native pasture, and 1,000 acres is for cultivation. Additionally, there are two other sections: the Dixon Creek section is 114,455 acres in both Carson and Hutchinson counties, and the Frisco Creek section is 9,428 acres in Sherman County.

Although there are divisions within the Ranch, the seller prefers to sell the property as one whole at an asking price of over $341 million. Included are the land parcels and the original 1917 family home, as well as additional owner’s homes, employee houses and camps, barns, and stalls, all of which have been well-maintained and improved. Also, a quarter of the mineral rights will belong to the buyer. Livestock and equipment are not included in the sale, due to market fluctuations. These ranching aspects will be sold separately.
