- Wilmoth Ranch is a family business owned by brothers Greg and Brent Wilmoth and managed by Jeremy McBride. The WR is one of several businesses owned and operated by the Wilmoth family of companies. It all started in 1953 with a small, 2 pump gas station in Mount Vernon, Missouri with Mr. Dwight Wilmoth acting as the owner, operator and the only employee. Over the years the business has changed, adapted and grown, but one constant remained. Family owned and operated. Today, the third generation has entered the business. You can drive around the ranch on any given day and it won’t take long to find one Dwight’s sons, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren.
