Chas. S. Middleton and Son, LLC is honored to have been selected as the exclusive broker represenƟng the owners in the sale of this outstanding ranch. The Swenson Flat Top Ranch is well located approximately 40 miles north of Abilene near Stamford, Texas.

A very prominent elevated mesa, known as Flat Top Mountain, is located on the west-half of the ranch. The east face of the mesa is rugged, steep and rocky, but much of the mesa top is fairly level and transiƟons to header draws and deeper canyon drainages, all descending to the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, which runs for approximately 7 miles through the northwestern side of the ranch. Approximately 6,300 acres are currently in culƟvaƟon, typically farmed in wheat for seasonal livestock grazing. The farmland has very producƟve soils and it is esƟmated that another 10,000 acres, or more, could be broken out and farmed, if desired.

The ranch is fenced and cross-fenced and is well watered by windmills, electric submersible wells, an extensive waterline network, numerous dependable earthen ponds and live water in the river. Current oil royalƟes are approximately $800,000 per year and the mineral conveyance is negoƟable. The ranch features excellent hunƟng opportuniƟes with abundant whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, seasonal water fowl and others. This historic ranch is realisƟcally priced at $1,200 per acre.
