The Harrington Ranch began under the Homestead Act as a 160– acre parcel, homesteaded by Oley and Etta Wisehart in 1911, and has remained in the same family and been added onto ever since. The original homestead patent was signed by President William Howard Taft in 1911. The ranch was recognized with a SD Century Farm Award in 2011. Established in 1910, the Harrington Ranch has been under the same ownership for over 100 years and has been operated as a working cattle ranch the entire time. The property is a well-balanced ranch with a combination of well sodded grassland, dryland and irrigated hay. Historically, the property has been managed as a year around cattle and grain operation, raising crops such wheat, corn, soybeans, beets and barley. More recently the ranch has been summer grazed by neighboring ranches and the hay-land has been operated on a share basis. The corpus of the property consists of 2,290+/- well-blocked acres, comprised of 45+/- ac irrigated, 170+/- ac dryland hay and 2,075+/- ac. well sodded productive native grassland. The ranch is fenced into 9 individual pastures, 3 separate hay meadows, and is all contiguous. In addition to the main body of the ranch, the owners are offering the opportunity to purchase separately, a 40-acre parcel and an 11-acre parcel, both of which adjoin the corpus of the ranch. (call for pricing) Rarely do you find a well balanced and well blocked property of this size and scope this close to the conveniences of air travel, city services and tourism attractions, let alone one that‘s been held in the same family since the days homesteaders first came to this area! What a remarkable opportunity! Don’t miss it.
