The Red Oak Ranch is a 380-acre tract of land located 25 miles south of Dallas in Ferris, Ellis County, one of the fastest growing areas of the metroplex. Several industrial and commercial companies are relocating to the area for easy access to Interstate Highway-45 which runs north-south from Dallas to Houston and the Gulf of Mexico. These companies employ thousands of workers, and include the Union Pacific Intermodal Transportation Terminal, the third busiest Fed-Ex ground hub in the US and two Google Data Centers, one in Red Oak and one in Midlothian. All these employers are within 12-15 miles of the ranch property. As the population of the county grows and demand for residential housing increases, the property is well situated to be developed into a residential subdivision. The town of Ferris just approved a new 5,200-acre residential subdivision to be called Woodstone with construction on the first phase to start in the fall of 2019. The Public Utility commission states that the property is in the Rockett Special Utilities District for rural water supply. With most of the ranch in open pastureland and over 1 mile of frontage on the north side of Red Oak Creek, the ranch is currently usable for a variety of agriculture purposes including hay production, row crop farming, and grazing cattle. Red Oak Creek is a tributary that flows into the Trinity River. In addition to the creek, there are two stock tanks on the property. The stock tanks and creek provide opportunities for dove and duck hunting and the gentle roll of the pastures and clay soil allow for horseback riding and riding four-wheelers across the pastures.
