Additional Information Babcock Ranch serves as an important base for agricultural companies. Tenant farmers harvest a variety of vegetables including tomatoes, squash, zucchini, beans, lettuce and watermelons. Bahia and Floratam sod farming is an integral part of our agricultural operation.


Babcock's Crescent B ranch encompasses a 90,000+ acre area. The ranch is considered an inland, upland, fresh water eco-system. It includes a variety of habitats such as: oak hammocks, pine woods, pastures, wet lands and the 10,000 acre Telegraph Cypress Swamp, so named because telegraph communication lines had to be routed around the swamp. Ranch land extends into Charlotte and Lee counties, in a 153 square mile contiguous block-six times the size of the island of Manhattan. Cowhands on registered quarter horses work the cattle herds much the same as in the past. Horses and dogs are still used today because cattle often roam into areas inaccessible to jeeps and trucks.
