It could serve as a nice base for a small purebred cattle operation, or a great place to raise and ride horses. The irrigated meadows provide a nice compliment to the native grasslands, providing a balance of forage and flexibility for a grazing program. The ranch has a State of Wyoming grazing lease on 640 acres and also has a 57-AUM BLM lease for livestock grazing. Existing Home The ranch has a home that could easily serve as a manager's residence, which is near the barn, shop, corrals and working facilities. There is also a 5-acre building site still available for a future buyer to build a new home to enjoy the wonderful valley and views. Please see the second video in the video gallery below. In addition to the 5-acre vacant building site within the conservancy easement, there are 490± acres with no easement where you can also build whatever you want. Both options offer amazing building sites with great Wyoming mountain views. With a Nature Conservancy Easement to protect the natural plants, wildlife, and scenic view sheds, from further development this ranch will remain largely as it is today. Though currently operated for agriculture use, the recreational amenities of the ranch are not to be overlooked, nor is the chance to unwind, relax and enjoy life far from the stress of urban living. Whether you want to retire, or just a place to escape permanently or periodically, you'll immediately enjoy the Wyoming way of life here. Significant ecological diversity and plenty of open-space provides natural habitat for pronghorn antelope, mule deer, whitetail and elk; not to mention Hungarian Partridge, some Sharp Tail Grouse and other upland birds and water fowl. French Creek meanders through the cottonwood lined riparian zone for roughly 1.5 miles. This ranch is in elk hunt areas 35 & 36, area 35 being very coveted. The ranch is also known for excellent whitetail and pronghorn antelope hunting. Not often do foothill ranches in the greater Buffalo area come on the market that are this close to town, with the ease of access, productivity and recreational amenities like Upper French Creek Ranch. Please call if you'd like for more information or if you'd like to schedule a showing of this fine property.
