The summer issue of The Land Report has a six-page feature on River Bend Ranch in Wyoming, a Fay Ranches listing. Greg Fay, who founded Fay Ranches as a fly-fishing ranch brokerage over 20 years ago, is quoted in the article saying, “This is quite possibly the finest angling property Fay Ranches has ever listed.”
But the sporting pursuits on the ranch are not the focus of the article. Whoever purchases this ranch will not only acquire a first-class recreational retreat and quality agricultural property, but will also make a significant and enduring contribution to the future wellbeing of wildlife and livestock in the American West.
The article is by well-known Texas writer Joe Nick Patoski, whose most recent biography is Willie Nelson: An Epic Life. Patoski traveled to Laramie to learn about the ranch and the current owner’s commitment to the unique research and education being done at the University of Wyoming and its College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
