The Fox Hill Ranch includes a total of approximately 2,980± deeded acres. It is located 7 miles from Harlowton, Montana, which serves as the county seat for Wheatland County, where the ranch is located. The ranch is also close to the “center” of the State of Montana and provides relatively easy access to several of Montana’s largest cities.
Originally a stop on the Montana Railroad (a predecessor to the Milwaukee Railroad), Harlowton was founded in 1900. Today, “Harlow,” as it is often referred to among locals, is known as a ranching/farming/agriculture community where residents wave to one another and are prepared to lend a helping hand to a neighbor in need. Harlowton offers a variety of services to the surrounding smaller communities, including Judith Gap, Two Dot, and Martinsdale. The Harlowton region is well known for agricultural production. It is also gaining nationwide recognition for the noteworthy wind project development by Invenergy, located on several large area ranch properties adjacent to the Fox Hill Ranch, which enjoys the same winds that blow across the adjacent properties. The Crazy, Little Belt, and Snowy Mountains create the scenic backdrop for the ranch and region.
According to the sellers, the ranch has not been utilized to its full potential in a number of years. The Fox Hill Ranch is an ideal location for a savvy buyer who wishes to invest in Montana land, receive income from a potential grazing lease or run some cattle of your own, as well as explore the development of a new wind project in the region. The surrounding mountains and river corridor are admired for their variety of high-quality recreational amenities; both fishing and hunting opportunities abound.
