The Arrow Ranch, located in Montana’s Southwest corner, comprises 14,982± acres within its boundaries (12,963± acres is held in a Conservation Easement with the Nature Conservancy).

The acreage is a combination of flood irrigated meadows, prairie habitat with large grassy and sagebrush-covered hills, streambeds dotted with cottonwood trees, buckbrush, and willows, and transition areas covered with evergreen and aspen trees. With over 15+ miles of live tributary streams and 10.25± miles of boundary adjoining forest service, the Arrow Ranch is not only a best-in-class agricultural operation. Still, it provides a dynamic habitat for a world-class offering of wildlife, including large herds of elk that can be counted in the thousands.
The Arrow Ranch offers an opportunity for a fortunate land investor to embark on a special adventure that provides security and safety for their family, as well as a lifetime of enjoyment.
