This premier 4,137-acre ranch and farm property is large, contiguous, and offers prospective buyers the opportunity to control miles of country in Western North Dakota. Large tracts in Western Country are often available but rarely provide the combination of alluring beauty and earning potential this property boasts. This working ranch and farm has versatile appeal, complete with a nearly even split of crop and pastureland. Water is everywhere, both naturally and through dugouts and various wells. The home at ranch headquarters is an updated 1970s Bowman County gem fit for an out-of-area purchaser who might enjoy the tranquility and escape written about in books and enjoyed by many American icons throughout history. When you consider the market for comparable properties with recent sales within this region, you will find these tracts within reach while offering many of the same attributes which attract people to Western County.
