Montana Little Valley and Ashby Creek Units
Eve Ranches comprises two classic Montana ranches, Montana Little Valley Ranch and Ashby Creek Ranch, that are offered together for the first time ever, representing one of the largest ranch investment opportunities in western Montana today. Between the two ranches, the combination of deeded and leased ground totals over 22,000± acres, translating to over 35 square miles of land in Montana’s Blackfoot and Avon Valleys.
While each ranch is its own standalone operation, when combined, they are mutually beneficial, with Ashby Creek Ranch serving as a hay base proximate to the vibrant city of Missoula and the Montana Little Valley Ranch providing extensive mountain and meadow grazing combined with unmatched wilderness recreation.
Montana Little Valley Unit
The Montana Little Valley Ranch is a stunning property located in the Avon Valley of western Montana. It spans over 11,100± deeded acres of grasslands, meadows, and mountainsides, with an additional 9,956± leased acres. The ranch is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including elk, deer, bear, wolf, antelope, moose, waterfowl, and grouse.
The lower elevations of the ranch consist of productive grasslands and timbered foothills that transition into higher elevations and wilder country, where much of the leased acreage is landlocked and interspersed with the deeded acreage in a checkerboard fashion.
The ranch is easily accessible through an extensive road system, providing ample opportunities for recreation in the area’s most remote and wild terrain. Additionally, the property is adjacent to thousands of acres of BLM lands and the Hoodoo Mountain Wilderness Study Area, offering seamless access for additional recreation.
The ranch includes numerous creek drainages, springs, and wallows, providing water to the livestock and wildlife, and two high mountain reservoirs with wild trout populations.
