Carved from the famous XIT Ranch in 1907, Parmer County encompasses 882 square miles bordering New Mexico in the south-central Texas panhandle. With a population of just over 10,000, our county includes the communities of Friona, Farwell, Bovina, and Lazbuddie, each the home of award winning schools. At an altitude of 4100 feet, we average over 250 days of sunshine and 15″-16″ of precipitation annually. Agricultural industries drive an economy where unemployment is less than 3%, and the cost of living is 18% below the national average.
