FS Ranch - Austin County, Industry, TX

The FS Ranch is an iconic cattle ranch that has only had two owners since 1900. The current owners purchased the ranch in 1991. Located on FM 159 just east of Industry, the land rolls away from the road and has 3 ponds that stair-step down and feed into a beautiful lake surrounded by a canopy of live oaks. The house has a great room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake and the land below the main house. This is a very private setting made magical by the surrounding trees. With significant improvements including a foreman's house, hay barns, improved pastures, equipment sheds and a 9 stall barn, the FS Ranch has been the home to a high-end cattle operation (registered Angus) and a beloved weekend retreat for the Houston-based family. The ranch has been enjoyed as a wonderful retreat from the city with activities such as fishing, horseback riding and long walks.

Area History

Originally the RW Ranch dating back to 1990, Mr. Robert Wiese sold this land to the current owners in 1991. With the new owners, the ranch was renamed the SACC Sarofim Angus Cattle Co. The ranch started as a cow calf operation with Beefmaster cattle and changed to Registered Angus around 1998. The ranch has supplied quality Angus cattle to Ranchers from Mexico to eastern Europe and especially the local commercial cattlemen and women. The ranch also raised some quality horses that have been raised and used on the ranch.
