Hi, Nice To Meet You!
Get to know The
Ball Farm & Family.
Pictured right: The Farm House at The Ball Farm.
The Ball Farm is a family-owned and operated ranch and event venue in Lytton Springs, near Dale, TX. The property has been in our family for over 40 years and has seen many friends, events and beautiful sunsets over the years! Husband and wife team, Josh & Ivey now reside at the Ball Farm and are working to grow and share this special space with the Central Texas community!
Through 3 generations, the Ball Farm has grown and evolved in many ways.
In 1976, Josh's father, Bob Ball, purchased the land that would come to be known as The Ball Farm for his parents, Robert and Melba Ball. Robert and Melba were to live and retire on the land, which at the time had no houses or infrastructure. The family worked together to clear trees, build fences and a barn and construct the 2-story farm house - all from the ground up.
Pictured above as "Bob & Mickey", Robert and Melba Ball met on the corner of Hollywood and Vine in LA in 1945 and married that same year! Robert was in the army from 1941-1952. After surviving a harrowing experience in the Phillipines during WWll, he retired from the army with a Bronze Star Medal. They settled in Texas in 1973.
