Introduction: The H Bar J Farm, located on the northern end of Teton Valley, Idaho, is a 25-minute drive to the charming mountain town of Driggs, the county seat. Teton Valley, known as the quiet side of the Tetons, is located in the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The abundance of public lands in all directions, along with Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks is what makes this region so distinct. Comprised primarily of productive rolling farmland, the 324-acre farm enjoys bands of aspen groves and stunning views over the Bitch Creek drainage at the Teton Mountain Range and Grand Teton National Park. H Bar J Farm provides an opportunity for farm income, big mountain views, world-class fishing, recreational access and proximity to one of the West’s most desirable mountain towns.
Acreage: The H Bar J Farm is comprised of 324 deeded acres with 260 acres of tillable land with stunning views over the Bitch Creek drainage. The farm has historically been rotated between hay and grain over the years and benefits from deep, rich, productive soil. The area is known for its dry farm grain production; historical average show yields in the 55-65 bushels per acre with the most productive year in recent history in 2011 when 98 bushels per acre were harvested. The portion of land that is not in production, is a mix of aspens trees and native sage and grasses, which attract wildlife from the nearby Caribou-Targhee National Forest.
Live Water: Once known as the Teton River North Fork, Bitch Creek drains the high country of the Teton Range providing clear cold-water flows to the Teton River downstream. Bitch Creek begins as two separate forks that join just before the Idaho border in Wyoming. North Bitch Creek begins north of Moose Mountain and South Bitch Creek starts north of Dry Ridge Mountain. Moose and Dry Ridge peaks are both in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. The two creeks meander out of the mountains and eventually meet 5 miles east of the Idaho/Wyoming border forming Bitch Creek. Before crossing into Idaho, Jackpine Creek joins Bitch Creek. Bitch Creek runs through a spectacular canyon setting before it joins the Teton River northwest of Driggs. Bitch Creek is roughly 15 miles long. The north and the south forks add an additional 8 to 10 miles, however the prime fishing water is a 12 to 15-mile stretch, which is accessed directly from H Bar J Farm.
