Boran Ranch

Legacy ranch with the perfect mix of cattle, sod & some of the best examples of palm hammocks, live oaks & cypress heads in Florida

Irrigated Farm Fields, Improved Pastures, and an Extensive Hay Operation in Place and 800 acres Laser Leveled for Sod Production


Boran Ranch is a 4,047+/- acre legacy ranch located in Desoto County, Florida at the heart of ranch country just north of Punta Gorda & Naples, FL. Nestled away in a prime “end of the road” location, Boran Ranch is secluded with the luxury of being ten minutes away from a bustling civilization. Desoto County offers superb dining experiences, cultural activities along with a rich history of being explored by Hernando de Soto. This timeless property is conveniently located 7.2 miles from I-75, taking no time to visit Naples, Boca Grande, and Punta Gorda for shopping, day trips, and world class accommodations & dining. There are three airports nearby, including the SW Florida International airport in Ft. Myers, allowing for easy travel.

This natural end of road property is bordered by conservation lands owned by Southwest Florida Water Management District and Brad Kelly, one of the largest land owners in the U.S. The ranch supports the perfect mix of cattle, sod & natural hammocks and is excellent for deer, hog, Osceola turkey & waterfowl hunting. It also offers wild quail and a release program, several stock ponds disbursed across the ranch and two natural water duck ponds- the last stop on the flyway- for the avid bird hunter. The property features beautiful palm hammocks, Oak hammocks, cypress heads, pines, palmettos, flatwoods and sawgrass marshes.

Boran Ranch incorporates an extensive fencing and road system to protect the primal land. It includes approximately 800 acres that have been laser leveled for sod production, 1760+/- acres of irrigated farm fields and improved pastures planted in Bahia, Bermuda and Hermathia grasses with an extensive hay operation in place. Existing water management structures, wells, and irrigation systems that allow for farming & crops. Previous crops include tomatoes, watermelons, various vegetables, hay and sod as a few notable farming endeavors. There is also significant income potential from land leases – up to $500 an acre!

The property features two main houses. The Ponderosa is 3,037 square feet, 4 bedrooms, and 3.5 bathrooms. Featuring a fireplace, screened in pool and screened in game shed for harvesting. The second house on the property is the Cypress Lodge and is 2,900 square feet. The Lodge is a recently renovated 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with Cypress and Pine throughout. The master suite is accessible downstairs and includes a custom hunting gear room or office area. Upstairs highlights an open concept with indoor and outdoor dining areas and luxurious custom double-paned oversized sliding glass doors. Make it cozy during the winter with a warm fire in the fireplace. Or open the two screened in walkout porches from upstairs or downstairs to let in a cool spring breeze.

Other property amenities include dog kennels and two horse barns with a working arena/rodeo pen. The extensive equipment barns and storage sheds provide plenty of space, whether you need to store your tractor, trailer or combine.

Boran Ranch is ideal for the avid hunter, fisherman and all around outdoorsman. Located in the ranch epicenter, the cultural epicenter of Naples and the fishing epicenter of Boca Grande…. there is never a dull moment.

"Perhaps the perfect combination of healthy, natural ecosystems, thriving ranch lands, and intensive agriculture combined to offer an incredible recreational property while at the same time the most unbelievable agricultural income”

"If I was looking for a ranch…one where I could do as much or little as I want…and have a steady income stream that could run itself, This would be it. It’s easy to find and all your family and friends would love having Boran Ranch as their meeting place year after year for those special occasions & holidays."
