The Basin Ranch is an outstanding ranch property with a well-managed cattle operation, extensive grouse and wildlife habitat, home and ranch improvements, and multiple opportunities, all less than 20 miles from the state’s largest city center—Billings, Montana.

Nestled in a large basin surrounded by the Billings Rimrocks, the Basin Ranch is the quintessential eastern Montana ranch holding, offering its owner a much deserved reprieve from the daily grind.

A well-positioned ranch home overlooks the old homestead place from atop a bluff. The views are expansive, the wildlife is plentiful, and only one neighboring ranch is within sight. It’s also one of the few available ranches of this size minutes outside of Billings. If 10,000+ acres is not enough, there is an option to buy or lease an adjoining 8,000+ acres.

The Basin Ranch is currently operated as a successful cattle operation and offers multiple opportunities: continue to operate it as a cattle ranch; lease or buy additional land on adjacent property; rotate to grain and/or crops when commodity prices are more favorable; implement a conservation easement; lease sage grouse habitat to Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks; and more.
