The Babacomari Valley, located in the rich savanna rangelands of Southeast Arizona, has been supporting cattle and livestock together with abundant wild game and fish since the Europeans first ventured into this "terra incognita" early in the 16th & 17th centuries. Millennia before this, native tribes made this verdant river valley that cuts through the northern Sonoran desert, their water blessed home, and archeology easily uncovers century upon century of culture dating as far back as the woolly bison and its saber-toothed predator. Today, in our eighth decade, the descendants of Frank and Sallie Brophy hold stewardship to this land we call the Babacomari Ranch.

The ranch's boundaries follow those of the original land grant issued in 1832 by the then young Republic of Mexico as the"San Ignacio del Babacomari" to the Elias family, still prominent ranchers in Sonora after nearly 200 years. As today's third owners we hold by blessings coupled with hard work title to the largest contiguous private land parcel in Arizona, at nearly 28,000 acres, ranging from desert to riparian to woodland habitats. And this is our mission statement:"The Babacomari Ranch is a profit-oriented company that holistically protects, preserves and enhances the natural resources, historic integrity and esthetic qualities of the Babacomari Ranch while providing a creative and collaborative environment that enhances the quality of life for its landowners,employees and neighbors"
