This is a very productive farm and cattle operation located in the small community of Harper. It produces seven tons of alfalfa and 30 tons of corn silage. It has good water with an efficient delivery system. Three good homes with the main home sit on a knoll overlooking the valley. An additional home could be turned into a rental. This property could be used as a combination of cattle and farm operation. Productive, easy to operate, compact farm in a great location.

Recreation

Bully Creek Dam and Reservoir:

Bully Creek Dam and Reservoir (24± miles Northeast of Harper) are on the Bully Creek about 8 miles northwest of the Creek’s confluence with the Malheur River. Forested areas at the reservoir provide opportunities for viewing migrating birds. In the spring, fall, and winter you may see loons, grebes, ducks, and hawks. Nearby a red rock formation sometimes harbors Rock Wrens and Golden Eagles. The reservoir is 985 surface acres with 7 miles of shoreline. Paved access to the dam. Available fish species include smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, rainbow, and black crappie. The reservoir is used as a resting place by migratory waterfowl with some ducks remaining to nest. Sparse vegetative cover of sagebrush and grass provides a habitat for small mammals and birds.

Owyhee Reservoir

Located in far Eastern Oregon near the Idaho border, ( 63± miles Southeast of Harper) the reservoir is Oregon’s longest at 52 miles.  The lake is home to several species of fish, including crappie, rainbow trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and brown bullhead, and yellow perch.

Owyhee River

The Owyhee River presents an anglers paradise, with opportunities to cast a line around every bend. The roughly 14 miles of water below the dam that forms Lake Owyhee is a renowned blue-ribbon fishery, where brown trout get so big that fishing stories just might be true. Largemouth and smallmouth bass both swim in the reservoir, as do rainbow trout and crappie. And upstream, tributaries feature natives like red band trout.
