LONG BRANCH FARM | Sold
Jordan, Montana | Garfield County
- 5,951± Total Acres
- Excellent Soil Profile
Long Branch Farm, one of the premier grain farms in the state, consisting of approximately 5,951± contiguous acres of which 5,320± are deeded, represents an opportunity to own a productive well-balanced dry-land farm with good soils and consistent crop yields. Long Branch Farm was under the careful husbandry of the previous owners for 35 years and the current owner and tenant for the past five years. The owners have maintained the status of a well run farm since the early 1970s. Starting with the basics of excellent soils, they have built a productive operation utilizing good farming practices and employing the latest technology available. The current tenant on the Farm raises spring and winter wheat, however a variety of crops are grown in this area. The county average for winter wheat is 35 bushel/acre and 29.2 bushel/acre for spring wheat per USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) statistics. The Farm historically matches the county averages on a normal year.
Well water is piped to all the pastures aiding in the productivity of the agricultural operation. A profitable bonus is 1,822± acres of well-maintained and abundantly-watered grazing land which is generally leased out to neighboring ranchers for a grazing fee. Historically, the Farm is not grazed until after harvest allowing the native grasses to grow, mature and reseed every year prior to being grazed. The Branch Creek BLM allotment adjacent to the Farm has 168 AUMs and can be grazed for a longer period.
The Farm has appropriate modest improvements, which are ready to utilize or could be further developed and enhanced by the new owner. There is a 3,600 square foot home, a shop, 50,000 bushels of quality grain storage as well as a grass airstrip.
Long Branch Farm hosts a variety of big game, as well as upland-game birds and waterfowl. In addition to the Farm, direct access to the adjacent 7,000 acres in “Block Management” creates approximately 13,000 acres of good back-yard hunting for the avid outdoor enthusiast.
Long Branch Farm has been maintained as a very productive operation. It is fairly rare when one of Montana’s old-line, seldom-traded farms with good production, native range, upland bird, waterfowl and deer hunting as well as a cash lease tenant, if desired, become available. Long Branch Farm possesses all of these qualities.
