The Knibbe Ranch was founded back in 1852, more than 150 years ago. The Knibbe Ranch (we pronounce it ka-NIB-bee) is one of the few remaining Century Heritage Ranches in the State of Texas, which means the Knibbe Family has been in a continuous agricultural endeavor (cattle) for over a century.
Located only 28 miles north of downtown San Antonio in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, the historic Knibbe Ranch is rich in German heritage and culture reminiscent of the early European immigrants.
We are a working cattle ranch, with a thriving cow-calf operation producing beef cattle for market. Our breeding program involves F-1 Tiger Stripe cattle.
