Welcome to Kourtis Family Farms

Kourtis Family Farms was founded in 2016, by Pete and Shelly Kourtis of Owasso, OK. The main ranch is located just northwest of Skiatook, OK, in the beautiful and rugged Osage Hills. The ranch is a mixture of native range and Blackjack Oak timber covered hillsides. Texas Longhorns were initially selected as the breed for the ranch, because of their unique beauty. Soon, they proved themselves to be perfectly suited for the rough environment of the rugged sandstone hills. Today, Kourtis Family Farms consists of a registered seed stock division, which sells breeding stock and supplies Tallgrass Longhorn Meat Company. There is also a commercial division, utilizing great Texas Longhorn females for the foundation herd.

"Out Where The West Begins"
Out where the handclasp's a little stronger,
Out where the smile dwells a little longer,
   That's where the West begins;

Out where the sun is a little brighter,
Where the snows that fall are a trifle whiter,
Where the bonds of home are a wee bit tighter,
   That's where the West begins.
Out where the skies are a trifle bluer,
Out where friendship's a little truer,
   That's where the West begins;

Out where a fresher breeze is blowing,
Where there's laughter in every streamlet flowing,
Where there's more of reaping and less of sowing,
   That's where the West begins;

Out where the world is in the making,
Where fewer hearts in despair are aching,
   That's where the West begins;
Where there's more of singing and less of sighing,
Where there's more of giving and less of buying,
And a man makes friends without half trying,
   That's where the West begins.
