Cove Ranch consists of 4,487± deeded acres and 8,000± leased acres forming a beautiful mountain valley just south of Sun Valley, Idaho. The ranch is a highly productive alfalfa/cattle ranch, with an entitled development plan allowing for a potentially valuable conservation easement. Cove Ranch, just 25± miles south of Sun Valley, incorporates all the recreation and lifestyle the valley has to offer. Famed Silver Creek is 5± miles south of the property and the Big Wood is 6± miles to the west. Terrain transitions from fertile farm ground to sage covered foothills in the Pioneer Mountains. The infrastructure is extensive with six homes on the property.

Cove Ranch is efficiently operated with 3 large, full pivots, wheel lines and hand line totaling 1,283± irrigated acres. Grazing at present is under utilized but could support 200 cow/calf pair.

Multiple seasonal creeks flow into the property creating drainages rich in wildlife including mule deer, elk, and antelope. 200 to 300 elk can frequently be seen on the property throughout the year and a healthy mule deer population is found on the ranch.

Cove Ranch is a highly productive agricultural property in close proximity to one of the best resort towns in North America. This makes the property one of the few large acreage ranches that can bring the best of both worlds to any owner. The developmental aspect of the ranch and the potential tax benefits that go along with it makes expanding Cove Ranch very appealing.
