ABOUT THREE FORKS RIVER RANCH

A second source of revenue from the ranch is provided by the ability to carry approximately 70± cattle pairs seasonally.

Hwy 2.  From the ranch, Bozeman is a short 30 minute drive east where you will find most anything you need.  From retail box stores like Costco and Walmart to the local shops and eateries along the main drag, Bozeman has it.  For easy air travel, Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) has flights daily from major airlines such as American, Delta, Southwest and United.

Improvements on the ranch consist of two, multi-tower pivots which irrigate approximately 25 and 40 acres respectively.  There is one well on the property that is reported to be 100ft deep and yields 9 gpm.
The ranch will typically support approximately 70± cattle pairs, seasonally.  There are no sorting pens or barns on the ranch.
The Smith Ranch offers a fantastic opportunity to the avid outdoorsman who is interested in having a recreational ranch with excellent, year round access for fishing and hunting, combined with several income streams to help offset holding costs.  The pivot irrigated ground will continue to produce needed crops in the short term, while giving the savvy investor a keen exit strategy utilizing this ground for future development as it lies above the floodplain.
