$2,500,000 / 313 Acres / Available
Large productive farm and cattle ranch set in a quiet country location outside of Ontario, Oregon. This beautiful property consists of 313 acres and is fully equipped for large cattle operation.
Ranchers will appreciate all the existing livestock features on the property. These include a concrete and steel feed lot designed to accommodate up to 1,500 head of cattle. A system of corrals and a hydraulic loading chute provide plenty of space for working and sorting cattle. In addition, there is a weighing station with a Howe scale licensed with digital readouts. Other outbuildings include the 30ft x 40ft livestock barn, a 4-bay equipment shed, and numerous sheds which provide storage for vehicles, farm implements, or hay.
The farm includes 200 water right acres through the Owyhee Irrigation District and currently has approximately 189 acres of cropland. The cultivated land produces grass and hay and is irrigated by a system consisting of 4 Pringle pivots, 9 sets of wheel lines, and two big guns. Both the water rights and the irrigation equipment are included with the sale of the property. The property highlights multiple natural water features such as the year-round creek and 2 large freshwater springs which provide spring fed water for the feedlot and the home.
A charming 2,416 square foot farmhouse lies in the heart of the ranch. The interior of this lovely home showcases an inviting main living area with unique architectural characteristics, such as an arched doorway between the dining room and living room, and a built-in bookcase at the bottom of the stair case. On the main level, you will find a bright spacious kitchen offering ample cabinet space and a breakfast bar for informal dining. A formal dining area with plenty of room for large gatherings lies just off the kitchen and features built-in cabinets for extra storage. The main level of the home also features a living room with a brick fireplace, the master bedroom, an office, and a full bathroom with a double vanity sink. Tucked away on the upper level of the residence are two guest bedrooms.
The cattle ranch is located approximately 7 miles northwest of Ontario, Oregon. Ontario is an agricultural community that lies along the Oregon-Idaho border overlooking the Snake River. The area is known for its prime agricultural growing land which commonly produces crops such as russet potatoes, sugar beets, and onions. Its location is unique in that it is near the point where four major rivers converge. These rivers are the Snake, the Malheur, the Owyhee, and the Payette rivers.
Besides the robust agricultural economy, Ontario offers its residents several local events and cultural opportunities. Local attractions include The Four Rivers Cultural Center, the Annual Great Owyhee Ride, and Malheur County Fair. Ontario is also close to some beautiful natural attractions such as Malheur Butte, the Owyhee Reservoir, and Leslie Gulch. Ontario is also on the eastern edge of the Treasure Valley, which encompasses the Boise metro area and is a mere one hour drive from Boise, Idaho.
Dear Robert, I think you are one of the nicest people on the planet, and for sure the best realtor. Thank you for all your hard work, great advice, patience, and for sticking in there with me. You really went "above and beyond". The world is a better place with people like you in it and I feel really lucky to have crossed paths with you"

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
