The property consists of a versatile 2,954+/- total acres ideally located about an hour north of Miles City, Montana. The property is a mix of tillable farm ground and well-watered good native rangeland. Land Seven tracts make up the property. 1,533+/- acres are currently in production, and the remainder serves as home base for 800 head of sheep. The farming in production has historically been seeded to cereal grains, primarily wheat, and most recently, barley. Pulse crops and other varieties have also been grown in the past. The owners worked tirelessly to cultivate the farm ground, maintaining soil nutrients and maximizing output potential of the operation. A modular home sits on the property with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Little Dry Creek flows through the property year-round. The Redhorse Creek runs seasonally. Hay Creek also cuts through the property.

Agriculture 1774+/- acres of fallow and 1177+/- grazing. Good productive soil and gentle terrain. The highly productive and well -maintained tillable dryland farm ground could be planted to a variety of different crops. There is potential for more of the property to be farmed. Grass-filled dikes are watered on good years by creek overflow and have the potential to be captured. There are several good reservoirs that hold water on the good years, and others that could be strategically developed for wildlife. The lush native grasses can provide grazing for sheep, goats, horses, or cattle. There are grain bins to rent out to local farmers or use for your own seed storage.

Another potential income endeavor could be mining of gravel located on the property. There are several mining opportunities throughout the farm.
