Located along 3.5± miles of one of the world’s greatest fly fishing rivers is the Engwis Ranch. Positioned conveniently between the towns of Livingston and Big Timber, the ranch’s 5,556± diversified acres have been managed meticulously for the past 37 years, enhancing both wildlife and range productivity.
From its northern boundary, the ranch feathers down toward the famous Yellowstone River. Multiple coulées and drainages lined with cottonwood, aspen and willow trees serve as excellent wildlife corridors. As the ranch drops in elevation the lush rolling grasslands and meadows splinter into productive pivot irrigated fields. Then onward to the rich riparian zone teaming with a multitude of birds and big game. The river bottom or “riparian area” is a forest of mature cottonwood trees and small juniper. The thick grass provides a nursery in the spring and summer months for a myriad of nesting birds, water fowl and does birthing their fawns. Watch where you step. But, do keep stepping. Next stop, the mighty Yellowstone River and blue-ribbon fishing.
The ranch is surrounded by “Big Sky” views in all directions. The Gallatin Mountains to the West, the Absaroka/Beartooth range to the south and Crazy Mountains to the North. As the seasons change so do the breathtaking vistas. For additional photos please visit www.engwisranch.com
The owners of the Engwis Ranch have made the decision to reduce the price or their 5,560± acre Big Timber ranch by $4.4m due to the threat of a pending wind farm to the west of the ranch. Currently, the owners and a handful of neighbors are fighting to stop the threat of the Crazy Mountain Wind Farm from being permitted and believe that they will prevail. The owners are currently in the process of implementing a conservation easement with the Montana Land Reliance to ensure that the integrity of their ranch stays intact in perpetuity. Excellent opportunity for the value minded investor.
