Fair Oaks Ranch
Fair Oaks Ranch is a Hill Country community located in northern Bexar County just off Interstate 10 and adjacent to Camp Bullis Military Reservation. The city is approximately 22 miles northwest of San Antonio and 7 miles southeast of Boerne, and its limits also stretch into neighboring Comal and Kendall counties. During the 1930s Ralph E. Fair, Sr., a successful oilman and rancher, purchased several land tracts that became the 5000-acre Fair Oaks Ranch. He originally focused his efforts on raising racehorses, but in the 1940s Fair began cattle ranching and developed his own Hereford strain. His pioneering work in a bovine artificial insemination program and promotion of superior show cattle garnered international attention and brought prospective cattle buyers from all over the world.
