Oxland Group, a Texas-based company, held a goat-breaking event to begin construction on Two-Step Farm, a 2,000-acre community located near 7914 Green Oak St., Montgomery.

In a nutshell

With the help of Open Space Group, 450 goats began to clear the development's land in an environmentally friendly way, Oxland Group Co-Founder Tom Woliver said. The goats are anticipated to clear 30-40 acres a day while new roads will be constructed.

There will be a total of 4,000 homes with 1,100 homes included in the first phase, which is planned to open in early 2025, Woliver said. The community will have nine different building plans along with a farm shop and a dance hall that will serve as the community center.

What they're saying
  • "The idea of Two-Step Farm really came to be birthed to celebrate the inspiration of the Texas flag, what it is to be a Texan and bringing people together in another way that evolved in showcasing the Texas spirit," Woliver said. "The preservation of the forest, the farming component, the music, and that's where it came, the name."
  • "What this means for Montgomery County is that it increases our mobility from east to west access roads that we don't have, and it's a master-planned community that does nothing but help value all over," Montgomery County Precinct 2 Commissioner Charlie Riley said. "Between the infrastructure and the homes that he is building, the values are going to be great, and it's going to be a great development."
