Hussa Ranch is located in beautiful Surprise Valley, on the
western rim of the Great Basin, in the Sagebrush Corner – the
borderlands of Oregon, California, and Nevada. Here we raise
commercial cattle and Quarter Horses. Our ranch flock is
unregistered, but of pure Navajo-Churro blood. We also offer fine
breeding stock, work animals, Navajo-Churro wool Products, and
John Hussa’s family has been ranching in Surprise
Valley just shy of one hundred years. His grandfather came from
Kansas by ship around the Horn to San Francisco. In the butcher shop
worked he hear men talking about the opportunity in the
good grass country of Surprise Valley, beyond the mountains. After
marrying, he and his young wife crossed those mountains by
stagecoach in 1911.
John has lived in Surprise Valley all his life. Linda has only
been here for the best part of hers. After marrying in the early
70s, the couple has continued in the cow-calf business, concentrated
on breeding Quarter Horses and added Navajo-Churro sheep in 1989.
Linda began writing seriously about ranch life and has published
several books including an award winning collection of poetry. You may contact
for more information. So please, have a look around and enjoy your
stay at Hussa Ranch's Official Website.
