The Oden Cattle Company - Freeman Ranch is the combination of three historic and reputation ranches into one premier cattle ranch. Located on the San Francisco and Coconino Plateau in north central Arizona, this ranch’s roots are traced to the Freeman Ranch, the Pouquette/Red Hill ranch and the Cuervo ranch. Between 1993 and 1998, owner Mike Oden consolidated the three ranches to one contiguous operation of more than 105 sections or 67,398 acres including 34,909 deeded acres. The Freeman Ranch represents one of the highest deeded acreage ranches available in Arizona. With a location in the heart of an area steeped in western ranching tradition, the opportunity to purchase a ranch bordering the Babbitt Ranch and just east of the historic Diamond A Ranch (formerly known as The Boquillas) comes along just once in a lifetime.
