The Historical Pfeiffer Ranch is a working ranch. It was purchased in 1939 by Meta and Hilmar Pfeiffer. They raised cattle, sheep, chickens, and grew oats, corn, and hay. The original house is still in use. The Pfeiffers had a large family with 4 sons and one daughter who all worked the ranch together, but after WWII, though they all would come back to help, only Lawrence and his wife Eva stayed on the farm. I Shirley, am their daughter. I was born in New Braunfels and attended Canyon High School. As a child I helped my father all the time. I watch and learned everything I could about our farm. I was taught plowing to planting to harvesting, to handling the animals and do simple repairs. The ranch now belongs to me and I wanted to share a bit of this beautiful hill country paradise with others. That is why I have a fenced in area for you to enjoy along with your family. A place to rent out for those who desire the peace and tranquility of the country but also want the convience of a modern place to stay . I do not provide Wi-Fi because I believe that getting back in touch with your family and friends is very important now adays. I hope that you enjoy your stay and take delight in gazing at the beautiful stars, and watching wildlife and grazing livestock on the ranch that you can see from your rental. You can contact me personally if you like to hear stories of the ranch and how it once was a dairy that serviced New Braunfels from the late 1800s to 1939 when my grandparents purchased the ranch.
