Our History

 

The Rail Three Ranch Brand

  In 1964, my Grandparents, Ed & Eloise Brown worked for the Bard Ranch in Kirkland, Arizona. The Bard family hired Elliot (Jack) Humphrey, a geneticist, to develop the Barzona breed. When the breed was registered, Jacks work was done and he moved on to develop other breeds. When he left he gave the Rail Three brand to Granddad. It has been in our family ever since. Shad & Sammi Jo Beebe now use the brand on their ranch in Florence branding all their cattle and horses. 

   Rail Three is predominately a yearling operation while running cows year round also. Sammi Jo & Pecas Sonora also own and operate Rail Three Ranch quality handmade leather goods on Main St in Florence. Our son John is back and forth from his ranch in Oklahoma to the Rail Three here in Florence. 

   The Rail Three Ranch leather shop was established in 1997 in Oklahoma and continues to grow in Arizona. The shop recently renovated an adobe building built in 1889 in Florence, AZ in order to have a store front and worksop in one. Rail Three is mainly known for our signature, one of a kind, original version of the leather flowers. You will see them on almost every item we create. The family run business mainly includes Sammi Jo Beebe, Pecas Sonora Beebe & Dally Sue Smith. 

   You can find Rail Three Ranch at Southpoint in Las Vegas at the Cinch Western Gift show every year during the National Finals Rodeo. Or online at railthreeranch.com
