Our Story

Design with vision and understanding

F5 Ranch FencelineIn 1815, Alexander Farmer, a carpenter from Scotland, immigrated to Texas. The story goes that Alexander had to hide his toolbox because the Scottish government wasn’t allowing anyone with a skilled trade to leave the country. He homesteaded Texas as one of Stephen F. Austin’s first colonists in 1823 and began ranching.

As time passed, the Farmer Ranch in Kimble County was divided several times. Robb Farmer is a sixth generation Texan with roots on the F5 Ranch.

Robb earned an MS in Construction Management from Texas A&M. Jennifer Neil earned a BFA in Interior Architecture from The University of Kansas.
