How much, exactly?

Well, according to the Land Report, her family has made over $23.9 million over the last decade from the Bureau of Land Management because they allow wild horses and burros on their land.

Of course, that's not her family's only lucrative source of income. The Drummonds also run a highly successful cattle company, while Ree herself has seen incredible success through her blog and Food Network program, which is one of the network's most highly-rated shows. Her personal net worth is estimated to be around $8 million.
