Tate Farms was established in 1962 by G.L. Tate Sr and is one of the last family owned ranches in Rockwall County. We have raised Hereford cattle for over 50 years and proudly sell our grass-fed, grass-finished beef to the public along with other Tate Farms products.
In 2000, we started our horse business and began offering quality horse boarding in a family friendly environment to clients from all over the area. We also offer private training, workshops and always have horses for sale. In 2015, we opened our event center to the public under the name of Summerfield at Tate Farms and in 2018 moved the historic Smirl Chapel to our farm to be used for weddings, community events, workshops, dinners, live music and more.
Tate Farms grass-fed, grass-finished beef. No added hormones or antibiotics. Pasture raised here at Tate Farms from the day it's born until the day it goes to harvest.
Tate Farms horse boarding was opened to the public a little over 20 years ago. We offer three levels of care along with a long list of amenities. We also offer horse sales, lease and training.
Nestled on our working horse and cattle ranch, Tate Farms offers the perfect venue for your wedding, private party, corporate event and so much more.
