The Oden Cattle Company - Freeman Ranch is the combination of three historic and reputation ranches into one premier cattle ranch. Located on the San Francisco and Coconino Plateau in north central Arizona, this ranch's roots are traced to the Freeman Ranch, The Pouquette/Red Hill and the Cuervo. Between 1993 and 1998 Mike Oden consolidated the three ranches to one contiguous operation of more than 105 sections or 67,398 acres including 34,909 deeded acres.
The Freeman Ranch represents one of the highest deeded acreage ranches available in Arizona. With a location in the heart of an area steeped in western-ranching tradition, the opportunity to purchase a ranch bordering the Babbitt Ranch and just east of the historic Diamond A Ranch (formerly known as The Boquillas) comes along just once in a lifetime. This ranch is strategically improved as a commercial cow-calf ranch with the flexibility and potential to run yearlings and stockers.
Location and Accessibility: The Freeman Ranch is located in Coconino County, approximately 200 miles north of Phoenix and 29 miles northwest of Williams, Arizona. Access to the ranch from Williams is provided by paved HWY 64 north approximately 7½ miles to Espee Road. Proceed west on Espee Road (dirt road) approximately 22 miles to the headquarters.
Terrain: The topography of this ranch is classified as gently rolling grassland. Various ridge tops have scattered pinion and juniper cover. The elevation ranges from 5,530 to 6,160 at the highest point on the south to the lowest point on the north end.
Improvements: The headquarters improvements include two remodeled ranch houses, bunkhouse, hay barn with shop attached, horse facilities (barn, arena, round-pen, tack-room), misc. outbuildings, overhead pellet bin, shipping corrals with scales, and other range corrals. There is a new hay barn in place at the shipping corrals. There is a house located at Pouquette Camp, used primarily as a hunting cabin.
