Clark Ostrich Farm is a family-run enterprise consisting of three generations of ostrich farmers. We have spent decades farming and learning about ostriches. Over time, we have achieved a successful commercial ostrich farming operation.
Ostrich meat is a healthy red meat with a texture similar to the finest beef cuts. For a health-conscience consumer seeking a lean protein source, it offers a refreshingly delicious alternative to skinless chicken and turkey. Our ostriches are raised on an all-vegitarian diet without any added antibiotics or hormones.
Ostrich farming in the United States was an idea that was simply before it's time in the early 1990's. The fact is, consumers are now much more engaged and interested in their food and its source. Consumers are now focused on: (1) the health aspects of their meats; (2) the animals' welfare; (3) the source of the product; and (4) the environmental sustainability of the production process. Ostrich farming is a perfect fit for supplying today's consumer.
If you are ever traveling to Colorado Bend State Park, there is a good chance you will see our ostriches roaming in the pasture before you reach the small rural community of Bend, Texas. Many travelers and park visitors stop to take pictures of our ostriches near the roadway on F.M. 580. The ostriches have become quite popular on social media and are often the backdrop for "ostrich selfies."

Appointment Only. While we would like to be able to show each visitor around the farm, we simply do not have the time to accommodate everyone that stops by and desires a tour. We are an operating farm with many daily chores and tasks to complete. We hope you understand and that you will honor our desire for making an appointment first. Thank you.
If you would like to purchase some of our superior genetics, we would love to visit with you about the opportunities in this industry. Shoot us an email and we will contact you as soon as possible.
Currently, there is a robust demand for quality breeding stock because there is a supply shortage of slaughter birds in relation to the demand for meat products in this country.
