Farm & Ranch Logo

Bently Ranch is on the market for the first time ever selling all of its agricultural holdings. Situated on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range in Minden, Nevada, the property is located just 25 minutes from the popular Lake Tahoe area and just minutes from downtown Minden and Gardnerville. This incredible 12,393.29 deeded acre property is being sold as one unit, offering a once in a lifetime opportunity. The owners started to accumulate land in Nevada in 1997 and instituted a cattle program in 2012. Over the last several years, they have focused on sustainable farming, aiming to grow a variety of crops that are used in their distilling industry. The sister company, Bently Heritage Estate Distillery, exclusively uses these grains and botanicals to create some of the world’s finest spirits. What makes this possible are the senior water rights and the reservoirs used for irrigation. Water is abundant here on the Bently Ranch. There are about 6,046-acres irrigated with 34 pivots. Water on the property includes 3,746-acre-ft Mud Lake and 1,784-acre-ft East Valley Reservoir. Senior water rights are from the West and East fork of the Carson River. Currently being grown on the property are grains of wheat, rye, barley, hops, & oats as well as premium alfalfa. Improvements include 10 homes, 4 bunkhouses, 7 shops, 5 horse barns, 12 hay barns, 12 storage barns, a feedlot, and a compost facility.
