Situated on 45 acres deep in the woods of East Texas, Shadow Ranch is a destination location that has a little something for everyone. We’re a fully functional exotic animal ranch that focuses on raising varieties of deer. Species include Red Stag, Axis Deer, Fallow Deer, Black Buck Antelope, Muntjac (the vampire deer), and more. Our animals roam freely around the land, turning the scenic East Texas countryside into something truly magical.
The Market is a boutique general store and gift shop that offers a variety of products, from Japanese A5 Wagyu beef to keychains.
Most folks come for the beef, and our inventory includes the choicest Japanese, Australian, and American Wagyu beef in the Northeast Texas.
The Barns is an event and wedding venue hand-crafted to provide a beautiful backdrop for weddings, showers, banquets, and other special events.
The Barn features a beautiful indoor area capable of seating 100. It includes a wet bar, optional stalls, and a fenced outdoor space with firepits and additional seating.
The Lodge is a guest house and Airbnb & Vrbo rental. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and can sleep 12 at maximum capacity.
Whether you’re in town for business or pleasure, The Lodge–nestled in the midst of our exotic animal farm–is ready for your stay.
