This is indeed a property to be excited about! It has so much to offer. First time on the market, this property has operated as a working ranch for well over 40 years and been in the same family for three generations. It produces a great hay crop through the use of flood irrigation and Is capable of running 75 cow/calf pairs. Critical to any property in Montana is water and this property has it! With old and established water rights from most of the ditches and an 8th water right off of the Bitterroot River this property has not been shut off from irrigation water even in drought years.
While this ranch is self-sustaining, it also provides for many other opportunities. A spring creek originates on the eastern side of the ranch and meanders through the lower part providing a habitat to many types of waterfowl including ducks and geese. The stream is also fishable with some brookies and the occasional brown trout making its way up from the main Bitterroot River.
Tremendous views can be found from almost any location on the ranch. The west side of the ranch has an upper bench lined with pine and fir and borders a major conservation easement.
Accompanying all of this quiet and rural beauty is the added bonus that civilization is only minutes away. With Hamilton providing access to quaint shops, good restaurants, and Marcus Daly hospital one need not ravel far for these amenities. Commercial air service is provided only an hour to the north in Missoula and Hamilton’s own airport is capable of landing private jets and other fixed wing aircraft.
Endless recreational opportunities abound from this location.
