It's a truly unique property and a rare opportunity.
The ranch is located in the Walla Walla Hunting Unit that is nationally known as a trophy unit.

Cottonwood Creek flows through the property with a native population of steelhead as well.

The stocking rate can improve significantly with improvements to the rangeland. The dryland farm ground includes 368.66 FSA-156EZ acres in an area known for 95-125 bushel/acre production. Farmland is currently grazed with rangeland. There are approximately 1,050 +/- acres of timberland on the property. The area is known to be the best growing conditions for timber in Eastern Oregon. Timber companies have expressed interest in purchasing the top 1,030 +/- acres which is a potential opportunity to lower the purchase price of the remaining property significantly.
