Georgia Lee was born and raised on her familyâ€™s ranch just outside of Fannin, Texas. a small community near Goliad. The Swickheimer Ranch was purchased in 1901 and has been successively managed by three generations starting with George Julius Swickheimer, the founder. Upon George, Sr.'s, passing, his two sons, George and Lee, took over and subsequently bequeathed the ranch to Georgeâ€™s two children, David and Georgia Lee Swickheirmer. It's Georgia Lee's ranch now and she perfectly embodies the spirit of the women ranchers in South Texas; tough when necessary (she runs the ranch with an iron hand), but full of heart for the land and the animals. When her father George, Jr., ran the ranch Georgia Lee opted to join the Marines her senior year in college, but her roots pulled her back every summer and most holidays. After her retirement, and with her parents in declining health, she returned to run her familyâ€™s ranch full-time. She is not only an adept rancher and manager of the land, but a great story teller, regaling her audiences with her wildlife and ranching adventures. Her connection to her family's land heritage is evident in all that she does.
