Company Name: Imperial Stock Ranch

Company Description: The Imperial Stock Ranch is located in the high desert of north central Oregon, and has been raising sheep and cattle, and producing grains and hay for more than 146 years. Established in 1871 as a 160 acre homestead claim, it became Oregon’s largest individually owned land and livestock holding by 1900, running tens of thousands of sheep. Today the ranch headquarters are a National Historic District, the only operating ranch in Oregon with that designation. The Imperial Stock Ranch is family owned and operated, and they believe their most important work is managing the interconnected relationships of land and grazing animals. In 1999, they successfully transitioned from selling wool as a commodity to selling American made wool yarns, fabrics and finished goods, forming strong relationships across the U.S. supply chain in the process. Today they are leaders in the development of a certified wool supply in the U.S. and have the experience to help connect that supply to downstream supply chain partners and support brands in their mission to source responsibly. They know by experience, that together we are stronger.
