In 1919, The King Ranch sold off over 34,000 acres to Mr. Phillip Chapman. Chapman was already a landholder in Oklahoma and East Texas. His son J.O. Chapman managed “Nueces Farms” as the tract was then called.
After dividing the land into 160 acre parcels, the land was leased to tenant farmers. In 1924 Nueces Farms became Chapman Ranch.
With 20,000 acres in cultivation, the Ranch was billed as the world’s largest mechanized farm. Experiments were conducted with both crops and machinery. Implements were introduced for improved cotton production and even a specific strain of cotton was developed on the ranch.
