Since 1888, the Hayes Ranch has been held by the same family, and is located in a valley where large contiguous pieces of land rarely change hands. Now on the market, the ranch comprises 1,736 acres of productive irrigated and dry land pasture, pivot-irrigated cropland, forested wetlands, and timbered upland benches. Miles of small streams and extensive water rights combined with a diverse topography provides both excellent production opportunities as well as valuable wildlife habitat for deer and elk and countless other non-game species. Within 20 minutes of Missoula, the Hayes Ranch is one of the most proximate large land opportunities to the Garden City.
