El Potrero Ranch

El Potrero Ranch - Riviera, Texas

Nestled on 130+ acres of South Texas brush sits El Potrero Ranch owned by David and Eline Haunschild. A short drive south of Kingsville, Texas and right off of US Hwy 77 provides you award-winning photogenic opportunities to view bobcat, javelina, deer, rabbits, a large variety of waterfowl and other birds, and a host of many other native wildlife in their habitat.

Although wandering the ranch just off the road may afford you great encounters to song birds, turkey, and deer, we have two prepared photo sites allowing you to view animals much closer in their environment. The best times to view the wildlife are mornings and evenings due to the warm temperatures afforded to South Texas. Common to El Potrero are vultures, caracaras, Harris hawks, a variety of song birds, turkey, eight species of mammals, and five species of reptiles and amphibians.

The ranch is also home to grass-fed cattle untainted by hormone and traditional grain feed. Pastures are free of chemicals, herbicides, and commercial fertilizers.
