    With about 500 acres in hay/tame pasture the ranch produces enough haylage to winter over 100 cow/calf pairs. The owners take one cut of haylage then rotational graze the cattle on the fields. The ranch previously operated as a registered bison game farm and could be converted back.

    History

    Like most properties in the valley the ranch was originally cleared for the timber value. Originally homesteaded by the Spooners in the 1940s, the property was then purchased by a Mennonite family in the early 1960s who cleared some of the land and began farming. In 1970 “Abe,” a local logger/outfitter, purchased the property and cleared more land. With a larger amount of arable land Abe ran cattle and horses on the property. The ranch house was built in 1980/81. In later years Abe ran bison on the ranch. The current owners have also run bison on the property and with some extra fencing the property can be converted back to a game farm for bison.
