Welcome to Pelt Farm Home of Folk Artist, Ken Pelt
Pelt Farm is composed of two parts. The Mirtie and Charlie Pelt Farm established in 1926 and the Mattie and Ben Jacobsen Farm established in 1906. Three hours after Ken Pelt was born in the nearby town of Sour Lake, he was at home at Pelt Farm in the community of Pine Ridge. During his lifetime he has lived in other places to attend college and earn a living, but never far from Pelt Farm. In 1974 he came back to Pelt Farm to stay.
Today Pelt Farm maintains a herd of Texas Longhorn Cattle. However, the main focus for the future is on the folk art paintings and writings of Ken Pelt. A museum is currently being created to house all 30 of Ken's completed paintings, including 22 from his just released book, Boyhood Memories. The museum is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2015.
