THE WARNOCK RANCHES
The Warnock family landed in Oregon in 1879, traveling across half the country in a wagon train from Abilene, Kansas. Saddled with a few horses and very little money, Nancy, a widow and a tough mother of nine, went West to Wallowa County to start ranching. Over the next 150 years, multiple generations of hard work, resilience, and adaptability have allowed the Warnock’s operation to grow in Eastern Oregon and into Central Oregon. The Warnocks have been one of our cooperative’s founding families since 1986.
