Pioneer Ranch has been in the Mercer family since 1872. Alfred and Elizabeth Mercer brought their family from England after Alfred’s brother David founded Matfield Green. Today, Pioneer Ranch LC is managed by Dave and Amber Griffin. Dave is the 5th generation of the Mercer family. He and Amber’s kids, Brock, Wyatt, and Hannah have grown up helping on the ranch and are the 6th generation. Pioneer Ranch runs a commercial Cow/calf and stocker operation and manages grass for David B. Mercer INC, Bergh Farms and Bar Cross Properties. Bud Higgs started helping Dave’s dad Rick over 25 years ago and is still a big part of the daily operations today along with his son Troy. Bud’s daughter Makenzie along with neighbors Lawrence and Garrett Osgood along with Brian Giesel help out too. Brock and Wyatt Griffin help more and more as they get older along with little sister Hannah. Pioneer Ranch is located West of Matfield Green.
