Fay Ranches is pleased to present the Silver Sage Ranch, a true 400 head, year-round operation. The ranch is comprised of 3,788± deeded acres with another 39,000± acres of State, BLM and Forest service lease land, adjacent to the ranch. There is 250± acres of irrigated crop group under pivot with another 245± acres of sub-irrigated crop/pasture. The ranch is located east of Midvale, Idaho, in the North Crane Creek valley. What makes this ranch special is the true nature of being a 400 head, cow/calf operation, with enough irrigated land to grow hay in order to feed during the winter and sell what is not needed. North Crane Creek flows through the ranch from north to south and the ranch has two other year-round creeks flowing into the ranch. At present, the ranch is running 400 pair, with the overall rating of 450 head. The past couple of years the ranch has produced 1,600 tons of hay. Silver Sage is located just over 2 hours north of Boise, Idaho. This is a ranch operation that works!
The property is located 20 miles to the east of Midvale, Idaho (pop. 400) which is a small, friendly agriculture-based town. North Crane Creek flows through the middle of the ranch along with Shirts Creek and Spring Creek flowing into the ranch. The ranch is surrounded by public land along with other large ranch, family holdings. Washington County is a very ranch friendly area, with farming and ranching being the largest industry. The owners have been running 400 cow/calf pairs along with a hired hand, very capable of working the cattle operation. The ranch is fully fenced with cross fences being used and the hay fields are fenced out. Approximately 1,600 tons of hay is harvested each year.
