Farm vs. Ranch
What is a farm and what is the difference between a farm and ranchito? Farming is the practice of producing and managing food. Farmers mostly grow crops like corn, cabbage and oranges. Although still a type of farm, a ranch or ranchito is where you are focused more on raising animals like cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens. What’s great about the Rio Grande Valley is that this area is perfect for farming and ranchitos. It has perfect weather for all your desired crops or for growing livestock.
Growing Citrus, Vegetables and Livestock
The Rio Grande Valley is one of the most important areas for vegetable production in the State of Texas. It is also the center of citrus production. Texas also leads the country in the growth of cattle, cotton, sheep and goats! There are so many options for what you and your family can do with your land in Texas. Here are some more options of which types of vegetables, citrus and livestock you can specifically grow and raise:
With vegetables, there are lots of options on what to grow that you can see here. For more information on livestock, check this page out. Citrus is what the Rio Grande Valley is known for and you can read more about how to care for it here.
When looking into growing crops or raising livestock, it’s important to understand what each will require. You don’t want your crops or animals to overlap. Disorganization like that can lead to fighting livestock. It can also lead to watering schedules for your crops to be interrupted. You should consider how many animals you want to raise and which crops you plan on farming.
Santa Cruz Properties offers several great options for families looking to start their own ranchito. We have 10 or more acres of land in McCook, where you will have lots of available land to suit your needs. You can check out all our available land here and see what we have to offer.
Growing up on a ranch or farm is hard work. You must maintain the land, raise your livestock and keep production moving. But it isn’t all about hard work. There are many benefits to having your family living on a farm. Your kids will learn the basics of where food comes from and how to be handy. They will also learn to be more responsible with chores and fixing things needed for the land.
What’s great is that kids will have a place to run and play! All that open space is great to roast marshmallows under the stars or go camping without having to leave your home! You can have a corn maze, a paintball war and even a four-wheeler trail for extra adventures! All that land is your playground!
