Nestled between the oak-covered mesas of NE Young County sits Sway Valley Ranch. The surrounding high ground provides breathtaking views that extend for miles, with hills stacked in the distance. Two flat-topped mesas make up the western boundary, separated by a ravine that offers a pathway for local wildlife. Located just off Hwy 16 and accessible via a tranquil county road, Sway Valley Ranch is shielded from the highway and the outside world by the very hills that make it so breathtaking. A quaint hunting cabin sits on the valley's edge near the ravine. Powered by a generator and nearby water well, this cabin has a bathroom with, an open kitchen to sitting area with beds...and an outhouse for shits and giggles.


Sway Valley Ranch has been cross-fenced to rotate cattle with a good set of centrally-located pens and a large metal barn. The present landowner has eradicated the prickly pear and mesquites while also curtailing weed growth to a minimum, enabling maximal grass production in the richly fertile regions. The wooded elevations of the property feature mature post oaks with excellent elbowbush and bumelia, which provide exceptional browse for the resident whitetail deer. As well as, ideal build sites with panoramic views. As the valley narrows it forms a winding creek along the ranch's eastern side. This wet-weather creek has been impounded to create a deep fishing pond stocked with largemouth and Florida Bass. Below the Bass Pond, the creek feeds a duck pond that lures in the seasonal flocks of waterfowl. Herds of 100+ turkeys dominate roosts and bottoms. Towering elms and chinaberry trees along the creek add to the diversity of the beautifully landscaped Sway Valley Ranch.
