    Don't know about the whole US. In Texas, it's the King Ranch, 825,000 acres covering 4 counties.
    Talk about seat time. How long would it take to mow that one? [img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img]

    Parker Ranch on the big island of Hawaii - once about 200,000 acres (now listed at 90,000 and change) - was supposed to be one of the largest non-corporate ranches in the U.S. Now run by a trust so I'm not sure it qualified anymore. Has to be one of the biggest on an island anyway!

    BB's right the King Ranch is one of the biggest in the US, www.kingranch.com. I have several horses from them. AZ and New Mexico have a couple that are near as large, but the King Ranch is by far the best out of all of them.

    Nah nothing compared to the King Ranch. His is right beside my wife's parents in Montana. I can find out for sure but I know it's not over 200,000.

    <font color=blue>What about Ted Turner's ranch.</font color=blue>

    Which one?

    I happened to read that he has a bunch o' ranches all over the place. They total close to 2 million acres, but the biggest is only a couple hundred thousand by itself.

    Enough to keep his Craftsman mower pretty busy nonetheless.

    There's the W. T. Waggoner Estate in Vernon, Texas, which claims to be the largest ranch in the United States under 1 fence. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.waggonerranch.com>Click here for their website</A> and scroll down for the history of the ranch. They say it is approximately 520,000 acres.

    The King Ranch's holdings include the 825,000 acres in South Texas plus a number of acres in <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.kingranch.com/geography.htm>South Florida.</A>

    The XIT Ranch (Texas panhandle) at one time covered approximately 3 million acres - but that was a long time ago...
