The Crow Creek Valley Hay and Cattle Ranch offers a unique opportunity to purchase an established agricultural cattle ranch with excellent hay production in the scenic Townsend Valley. Production is maximized with pivot irrigation and produces ample winter feed for the cattle on the ranch with surplus hay to sell each season. A portion of the ranch is fenced for spring and summer grazing. The cattle return to the irrigated land following harvest for the fall grazing season. Existing corrals are situated to take advantage of Swamp Creek, which flows through a portion of the ranch providing stock water for livestock and wildlife alike. This offering presents a unique opportunity to purchase a working ranch property in an agricultural corridor within close reach of both Helena and Bozeman for major services.

A year-round working cattle ranch that currently supports 100+ cows with surplus hay to sell each fall, this ranch is ideal for someone wishing to raise cattle or an investor who would like to lease the ranch out to a local operator.

The ranch includes a functional set of historic improvements that may be updated by a new owner. Existing improvements include a large Quonset building which provides excellent storage for equipment on the ranch, grain bins that have been previously utilized to store grain harvested on the ranch, a set of corrals situated with Swamp Creek flowing through the middle for easy cattle watering, several historic barns and sheds and a ranch home situated close to the corrals for convenience. The improvements are situated adjacent to Swamp Creek, lined with mature trees, and offer beautiful views of the valley and surrounding mountains.
