Nancy is the daughter of dairy farmers whose ancestors homesteaded in southwest Oklahoma in 1901 when it was Indian Territory. She grew up near Cache, Oklahoma, where she attended public school. After high school, she attended Oklahoma State University where she received a degree in Vocational Home Economics Education. Her first job took her to Wellington, Texas, to teach high school.
Larry was born into a pioneer ranching family who had settled into the Wellington area in the late 1800's. He attended school in Wellington and after graduation, he attended Texas A&M University. He obtained a degree in Agriculture Education and Animal Husbandry and returned to the family ranch in Collingsworth County.
Nancy met Larry while attending the First United Methodist Church in Wellington. They soon fell in love and married. Larry worked the ranch and Nancy taught school until the births of their three daughters, Amy (Farmer), Jill (Varner), and Tessa.
The Ranch was hard work and many times involved all the family members, but it was a wonderful place to raise a family. In 1999, the family decided to take advantage of the growing wildlife population in Collingsworth County by starting Salt Fork Hunts. It is very gratifying to see Salt Fork Hunts grow throughout the years. We love meeting new clients and watching them enjoy the special beauty of the Texas panhandle, the friendliness of its people, and the abundance of wildlife. Our family is blessed by the addition of two sons-in-law, Nick Varner and Pat Farmer, and one very special young grandson, Harrison Varner.
