Peterson Ranch is situated in the rolling hills of Central Montana in the famed Judith Basin near Buffalo and about 30 miles southwest of Lewistown. It is comprised of approximately 9,669± total acres, of which 8,549± acres are deeded and 1,120 acres are a State of Montana lease. With over 4,012 acres of dry-land farm ground, Peterson Ranch is a rare opportunity to own one of the premier blocked-up and contiguous dry-land farms in one of the Big Sky State’s most productive basin settings.

The grass resource has been well managed and it is apparent that the current owners have conservatively managed the Ranch to ensure healthy stands of native forage. Cattle can access fresh water within a half to three-quarters of a mile in all pastures.  The improvements on the Ranch are well maintained and functional. The Ranch is a must see for buyers who are interested in purchasing a premier Central Montana holding in the productive Judith Basin – an area well known for its highly productive soils, consistent moisture levels and close proximity to both the Billings and Great Falls markets.

Peterson Ranch is a unique opportunity to purchase a solid agricultural production ranch without the bells and whistles of excessive improvements and other non-producing assets. Priced at $1,375 per deeded acre including over 1,120 acres of State of Montana Lease land in crop and productive hard-grass native pasture, this is a must see for an ag producer looking to put on pounds of beef with minimal overhead.
