Flint Hills Ranching Heritage

Our story begins in 1859 when Charles Rogler, a young Austrian immigrant, walked from Iowa to build a new life in Kansas. Charles’ son, Henry, and in turn a grandson, Wayne, later took the reins, making the farm / ranch operation one of the most well-respected in the region.

The mission of Pioneer Bluffs is to preserve the ranching heritage of the Flint Hills.

“To those of us with that inheritance, the hills are more than just an economic livelihood—they are grass and cattle, soil and water. They are the cradle of our triumphs and sorrows; they are our very lifeblood.” –Wayne Rogler
