Concho County Land

Resting at nearly the dead center of the great state of Texas, Concho County is a small county on the Edwards Plateau, first founded in 1858 and named for the Concho River that flows through the northern part of the region.

With a population of just over 4000 people, Concho County is 992 square miles of pure Texas heartland, with rolling terrain to the north and creekbed streaked plateau to the south. Roughly 20% of the county is considered to be “prime farmland,” with naturally growing oak, juniper, and mesquite, as well as farms producing feed grain and other crops.

The majority of Concho County’s agricultural land (approximately 72%) is used as pasture for sheep, cattle, and goats. In 2002, the county held 411 farms and ranches, and agriculture remains a pillar of the local economy.

The two primary cities in Concho County are Paint Rock, the county seat, and Eden, the county’s most populous residential area. Paint Rock is named for the nearly 1500 Comanche pictographs painted on the cliffs overlooking the river – a reminder of the rich native history of the area.

With nearly 75% of the county population living in Eden, much of the region is wide-open land perfect for farming and ranching. Properties are available in a range of sizes to meet your needs, so explore the listings below to find the Concho County ranch that’s perfect for you!
