IMPERIAL STOCK RANCH, EST. 1871, SHANIKO, OREGON
Founded on a 160-acre homestead claim by Richard Roland Hinton when he was just 19 years old, Imperial Stock Ranch is situated on Oregon’s desert-like Columbia Plateau, a landscape ideally suited for raising sheep. Today, many of the ranch’s original buildings
are still in use, and the ranch continues to produce wool that reflects both a historical commitment
to quality and a modern approach to sustainable production.
