100 e Land Report 71/ T.R. Miller Family 215,000 ACRES Alabama's T.R. MILLER MILL COMPANY was founded in 1872, and that very same sawmill is still in operation in Brewton and is still owned by the Miller family. It produces pine flooring, siding, and pattern products from wood harvested on acreage owned by the family's CEDAR CREEK LAND & TIMBER. 69/ Hearst Family 217,000 ACRES 3,000 ACRES The strategic acquisition of inholdings and adjacent properties has led to a slight increase in acreage for this legendary California landowner. (See Henry Chappell's profile: "California Grass-Fed & Grass-Finished Beef," The Land Report, Fall 2014). The family's California holdings include the 83,000- acre PIEDRA BLANCA RANCHO at San Simeon, the 73,000-acre JACK RANCH near Cholame, and 61,000 acres of timberland in Northern California. 67/ Scott Family 220,000 ACRES Homer and Mildred Scott started ranching in 1943 with 300 head on 3,000 acres. Today, their heirs run 10,000 cattle on 475,000 acres (220,000 deeded plus 255,000 leased) that straddle the Montana–Wyoming state line. The family also runs more than 10,000 cattle on private and leased land located in and around Montana's Crow Indian Reservation. 68/ Eugene Gabrych 218,000 ACRES 18,000 ACRES Gabrych recently added to his California and Nevada holdings by purchasing acreage north of Indio. "I am not a developer," he told the Desert Sun. "It's just an investment. I don't have any plans." Gabrych owns large tracts in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial counties in addition to the 19,000-acre ROCK SPRINGS RANCH in the shadow of the Sierra Nevadas. 70/ East Foundation 216,430 ACRES Patriarch Tom T. East Sr. (1889–1943) accumulated significant tracts of South Texas rangeland. To honor his legacy, his children created the EAST FOUNDATION, which has become a model of wildlife and rangeland conservation in Jim Hogg, Starr, Willacy, and Kenedy counties. HEARST RANCH The family's San Simeon ranch is the nation's largest single-source supplier of free-range, all-natural, grass-fed and grass-finished beef. 128 L ANDREP ORT.COM e LandReport | WINTER 20 18
