Hi Hat Ranch Featured On ABC World News Tonight

Rick Turn Hi Hat Ranch ABC World News Video Clip
The Forest at Hi Hat Ranch is surrounded by the Suncoast's biggest private land holding and one of the largest active working ranches in Southwest Florida. Beyond the beautiful forested community and impressive estate homes lies a productive ranch that has been managed under the stewardship of the Turner family for nearly a century.

The Forest is just the latest chapter in a rich history of activity on the Hi Hat Ranch. Today, this historic property raises cattle and has vast agricultural operations on its 10,000 acres.

Recently, ABC World News Tonight with David Muir ran a story on another historic Suncoast concern - Tropicana. The feature profiled Tropicana founder Anthony Rossi and how he invented the modern orange juice industry. The Hi Hat Ranch, and family member and ranch manager Rick Turner, were also featured in the story since the ranch produces oranges for Tropicana.

Watch the story (after a brief commercial intro by ABC News). Learn more about the Turner family's stewardship of Hi Hat Ranch in these short video interviews with Rick Turner and family member and ranch partner Jim Turner.
