Plum Thicket Farms

Gordon, NE

**Seasons located at the bottom of the description** Located in the Sandhills region of Nebraska​,​ Plum Thicket Farms is a family-owned cattle ranch operated by Rex and Nancy and their son Patrick and his lady​,​ Jessica. "We have a passion for raising excellent beef cattle and strive to continue to improve the range and soil​,​ which are our livelihood." This goal led Plum Thicket Farms to receive the 2016 Aldo Leopold Award for Conservation as well as being named the 2016 Commercial Beef Breeder of the year by the Beef Improvement Federation. Rex and Nancy bought Plum Thicket Farms in 1998​,​ after moving from the Colorado mountains where Nancy had practiced cow​/​calf veterinary medicine. The farm has since remained in the family as their son​,​ Patrick​,​ is currently running all farm operations. Rex and Nancy built the herd to 300 cows by implementing from the outset a detailed individual cow record system. Nancy utilizes this data to make bull selections and culling decisions. She has steadily improved the genetic quality of their herd over the years. We offer 3-day and 5-day hunting packages that allow tents and small campers in designated areas along with a calving shed (running water) that sportsmen can clean game in. Deer and antelope packages are for up to 4 sportsmen​,​ and upland bird packages are for up to 8 sportsmen. Prices are a flat rate for the group (not per sportsman).

Land Details

Agriculture • Natural Forage

We have three pivots under irrigation with a mix of cool and warm season crops in them. All of our crop land is no-tilled and our goal is to have a living root-something growing in it year round. Our native range is under a rest rotation grazing plan. It is our goal to leave plenty of cover everywhere. Several wind breaks and cover crops on our dryland provide plenty of habitat for game birds.

Livestock Tanks
There is no live water on the place, but we have plenty of stock wells and tanks that stay full most of the year. We do turn the windmills off in winter, but because the tanks are large, there is usually water in them (frozen) all winter. The Niobrara river runs just across the fence from our southern border....
