Triple Diamond Ranch is a working ranch in Okeechobee County, Florida, an area considered “prime cow country.” Currently used as a cattle ranch, the history of Triple Diamond Ranch, along with its beautiful habitats, improvements, and meticulous care are what define its high quality.
The ranch’s history includes a thoroughbred equestrian operation. Its lineage produced winners of higher caliber stake races, as well as prospects for the Kentucky Derby and the Breeder’s Cup.
Triple Diamond Ranch provides various grazing terrain for cattle, including 1,500 acres of improved and semi-improved pasture. The remaining acreage is well managed through a strict burn-and-chop program, which maximizes natural forage and produces a high-quality native grazing range.
A two-story 9,069 SF southern plantation style home with a detached 6-car garage is located in the southwest area of the ranch. This estate-quality home provides a private, luxury family retreat. Other facilities include a manager’s home, three houses, a 20-stall horse stable, two barns, corrals, and a sizable grass airstrip.
Nestled in the Kissimmee River Basin, the property shares a contiguous border with the Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. Bordering the western boundary is a conservation easement. In the vicinity, near the eastern side of the property, are other conservation lands.
Totaling over 40% of the ranch’s acreage, dry and wet prairies comprise one of the largest and highest quality blocks of native prairie remaining on private lands. These qualities make this land very desirable for a conservation easement and the property is currently ranked high on the Florida Forever priority list.
Triple Diamond Ranch is as exceptional as it gets, offering opportunities for a luxury family retreat, diverse recreational activities, equestrian and cattle ranch operations, and potential for capital recovery through a conservation easement.
