Mantle Ranch for Sale

Montana Working Ranch for Sale

The Mantle Ranch is 503 acres located in Gallatin County, Montana near Three Forks and Bozeman along the Missouri River.  We are fronted on three sides by state land, and the other by a large contiguous ranch.  We have access to an entire state section (1x1 miles), accessible only through our ranch and the neighbors’.  The closest neighbor is a mile away.  The property consists of approximately 360 acres of pasture land including farmed fields and draws and canyons with native grass, 60 acres of flat tillable ground (40 of which have been under irrigation and some of which sub-irrigates), 20 acres of developed ranch headquarters, and the remaining in trees and water. 

We have running water through a spectacular bird habitat, and two ponds, one small and one encompassing about 3 acres.  Both have fish.  We have ample water rights to service the farmable land. Wildlife includes many deer (both whitetail and mule), antelope, occasional elk, wild turkeys and pheasant, ducks and geese, and of course tons of birds, fox, coyote, bobcats, etc.   

There are three wells on the place, one for the house, one for farm use (yards, stock tanks, outbuildings, etc.) and an artesian.  Power and phone are on the place.  The county road is paved to the driveway, 10 miles off I90, and has mail and school bus to the door. 

Buildings consist of a large mobile with additional great room and fireplace, 3 guest cabins (full power & water), a 60x40 shop with additional office and upstairs storage, 2 bunkhouses, extensive corrals, and a few small tack buildings.  The ranch is fenced and cross fenced for livestock.  Additionally, there is a large store of crushed gravel for use on the ranch or to sell.

We are currently set up as a working horse ranch and location for equine events.  On site, there is a Extreme Trail Challenge Course, Cowboy Golf Course, working corrals, and lots of riding trails and jumps.  We have handled hundreds of horses from the facilities on the ranch, and calved hundreds of cows on the feed grounds.  The climate is temperate and riding is possible year round.  Currently, we are the headquarters for Big Sky Hounds foxhunting club and of course, Montana Horses, Inc.   We also have a grass air runway on the place.

An impressive arsenal of equipment is offered with the ranch, including track hoe, bulldozer, scraper, farming equipment, some wheel line, tractors, haying equipment, and numerous other essential pieces of farming/developing equipment.  Additionally, a period of management during changeover is available, something we think is valuable for a successful transfer. 

Here is a link to a video we made a few years ago that shows a lot of the elements of the ranch and photos, and how fun this place can be.

The price for the above is $1.49M.  The Mantle Ranch is currently not listed, but will be shortly.  (This is a teaser.)  Call us at 406 285-3541 or email for more information.
