Growing up in a military family allowed Zach to see and experience different parts of the United States until he settled in Central Texas. He earned his degree in Plant and Environmental Soil Science from Texas A&M and has been working in the agriculture industry for the past decade. He has vast experience from working on farms with 5 acres of greenhouses and USDA organic field operations to working on a 50,000± acre ranch in Colorado where they ran 1,500 yearling cattle. Most recently, Zach served as the manager for a 3,000± acre cattle operation in East Texas and a 500± acre bison operation in the Hill Country. Through these experiences, he has gained significant knowledge about the different variables affecting the farming and ranching industries.
Zach became particularly interested in obtaining his real estate license in order to help young and beginner farmers and ranchers come up with creative solutions to owning land. He has a passion to help prevent the fracturing of large tracts of land for development through the use of conservation easements and identifying buyers who will continue legacy operations.
With his experience on a variety of different size farms and ranches throughout Texas, Zach has become familiar with the infrastructure necessary for successful operations. Having a background in Plant and Soil Science, he can help determine the available forage and the different areas of a property that are best suited to certain activities based on the soil type and the dominant vegetation. He has training in Holistic Ranch Management from the Savory Institute which looks at all aspects of ranch ownership including financial planning, land planning, grazing planning, and ecological monitoring.
Zach is very passionate about farming, ranching, and land ownership in general and will work diligently to help his clients find the perfect property. He has a gift for seeing the bigger picture and can help a client do the same by looking at the smaller pieces that make the whole. He also has a good understanding of the different programs available to producers through the USDA, FSA, and NRCS, which can be valuable to buyers for financing and for cost-reimbursed infrastructure projects.
