Based in New Mexico, Paul Taylor III founded Ranchline to encompass a broad range of common business interests and ventures. Taylor, a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, built Ranchline upon four common pillars:
At Ranchline, we believe in the ‘hands on,’ approach and speaking not just from theory, but also from personal experience. When we talk about ranching, it’s based on the knowledge gained from repairing fences, branding calves, marking lambs and paying the bills to make it all go around. Whatever the job, we can say that we’ve been there and done that, and are speaking with authority and real-world expertise.
We never forget that family is a guiding priority for all of us at Ranchline. When we talk about family, that includes not only our own, but yours as well—and even embraces our network of trusted friends and partners. Every day we rely on our extended ‘Ranchline family,’ and the bonds among us all, to help guide us in everything we do.
And while we look to family for support, Ranchline also believes strongly in independence, the individual, and making a positive impact on one’s community, country, and world. We welcome the opportunity to be held responsible for our decisions, and expect the same level of accountability in others.
And finally, it’s a classic Western tradition that we aspire to follow—the kind of perspective that’s getting harder and harder to find these days. It’s all about hard work, being a good friend, making the tough choices, and living with courage and conviction, passion and compassion.
