Throughout their adult life the Hutton's found the family homestead - Huttonville to be a welcome escape from the drone of daily life. The ranch and extended family are a retreat where they refresh themselves only to return to their life away from the ranch. Over the years  they found themselves coming home as often as they were able. The rustle of the wind tumbling over the grass. The seasonal changing color palate of vibrant neutrals. The freedom of wide open pastures.

The small town life where everybody knows your name. This is a place where birds and bees truly dominate the morning song and the stars overwhelm the inky night sky. These pastures are home, it is undeniable. A little history; In 1958 a stoic Cowan Noah Hutton (Paw) moved his family from Shallowater in Western Texas to a ranch between Cross Plains and Rising Star in central Texas with the goal having some relief from his seasonal allergies. The rolling hills he purchased for his new homestead were a massive thicket of briars. Paw was a cow man, cows do not eat briars. Paw kept up on what livestock markets were doing and knew the angora goat market was on the rise. He also knew goats eat just about anything including briars. After installing miles of really strong fences he bought 2000 goats and bulldozed the bramble. The goats gladly ate the bramble before being sold off in favor of a purchase of Beefmaster Cattle. “The most gentle beef cows” according to Paw whenever he proudly introduced a new friend to his ranch. Laverne (Maw) was a pillar of warm guidance for the family. Many years after her passing her wisdom is instilled in every household she touched. On arrival in the area Maw designed a house for their 5 children and was a constant source of support for the ranch and the family. This is where the Huttonville legacy began. Today 4 generations of Hutton’s live and work on or close to the ranch. Those who do not enjoy the privilege to live here come back for regular visits.

The Hutton’s have always been entrepreneurs, they bring that spirit to Flying Cow Ranch. Flying Cow Ranch is situated on the North Eastern most sections of what is affectionately called Huttonville in the area. Currently Flying Cow Ranch offers 5 power and water RV spots, boondocking and dry camping. There are two studio condos under construction in the pasture. There are future plans for an open air yoga studio, BMX pump track and event space. The ranch is a place where the Hutton’s can nourish their family and bloom all of their ideas. The ranch is a place where you can open yourself up to the escape of the wild peace.
