Gearhart Ranch Story  (7).jpg

Gearhart Ranch

The Gearhart Ranch in Fort Davis, Texas has been in continuous operation as a cattle ranch since 1890. Covering 32,000 acres over an abundance of native grasslands in the Davis Mountains, The Gearhart is in historically productive cattle country in Texas.

Our traditions are the same as they were 100 years ago. The Gearhart is operated by an excellent outfit of third and fourth generation cattlemen. We pride ourselves in working hard and being good stewards of the land and cattle. 

Premium American Wagyu
 

Gearhart Ranch crossbreeds fullblood Tajima Bulls with Angus cows and both are well known for great marbling. Tajima is a mountainous region of Japan and it's no wonder our Gearhart Wagyu herd thrives in the arid grasslands of the Davis mountains. 

     Tajima have the highest marbling and are the most finely marbled of Japanese bloodlines.  Wagyu marbling contains mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and lower saturated fatty acids (SFA).  We like to refer to MUFA as the "good fat" that matched with salt and pepper are perfect complements to draw out Wagyu Excelente's aromatic flavors and juiciness. 

     
 

Wagyu Excelente has a delicious aromatic flavor, tender feel, and the finish is light like olive oil.
