About Us

Our Story

In 2017, Matt and Valorie Loessin bought the property that is now the Vara Ranch headquarters as a place for our family to enjoy. As owners of a large national surveying and engineering firm, we couldn’t think of a better name for the ranch than the original survey measurement “Vara,” which was used in the original layout of Texas. Vara Ranch was initially started as an exotic breeding ranch and family home to have some fun. However our family’s lifelong love of the outdoors and hunting led to the creation, and explosive growth, of a full breeding facility for whitetail and super exotics. 

The Ranch

Located just southwest of Columbus, TX, Vara Ranch is a well-known source of superior genetics, evident in our top-quality whitetail breeder bucks, does and super exotic stock. With the addition of our exclusive high fence trophy hunting property, we now offer an all-inclusive hunting destination for those who expect nothing but the best.
