You have the freedom to dream big in Mission Valley. Beef production, dairy operation, crop farming, or family ranch. The sky's the limit at Moiese Valley Ranch. Lake County, Montana offers some of the best agricultural opportunities in the state as well as the best scenery. True to its name, the Moiese Valley Ranch stretches across the fertile valley below the Mission Mountain Range that towers in the distance.

This pristine 2,425 Acre ranch in Charlo, Montana features a perfect balance of farmland, dairy facilities, native range land, and homestead acreage. The strategic layout maximizes each section to the fullest.

Dairy Overview

This 10 Acre dairy farm is equipped with state-of dairy facilities that can support up to a thousand head milking capacity. The immaculate double-15 parallel milking parlor is fitted with no-slip platforms, automatic sprayers and drains, rapid-exit stalls, and 72,000 pound storage tank.

A happy cows dream, the dairy includes free-stall barns for 750 cows, 850 covered sheds for young stock, a loafing shed for 100+ cows, and a maternity pen.

The current dairy farm breeds Holsteins for their unparalleled milk production. The facilities enable year-round breeding for continual milking, even in the winter months.

This turnkey dairy farm is well fitted for immediate operation, and it has a great foundation for dairy expansion, organic milk production, or beef cattle. Depending on diet, the large farm makes it possible to grow hay, corn, triticale, wheat, sorghum, barley and other crops for silage, enough feed for an all-in-one operation. Impressively, this dairy can provide enough milk for about 35,000 people per day.

Farm & Cropland Overview

In addition to the dairy farm, this versatile ranch boasts around 1,300 Acres of irrigated crop fields. A variety of crops flourish in the Big Sky State, including wheat, hay, alfalfa, lentils, potatoes, peas, beans, and many more. The mild climate and abundant natural resources make agriculture, primarily cattle and wheat, the largest industry in the state. This area is also known for its bountiful apple and cherry orchards, and there's plenty of space for that, too.

Because of the lower elevation, Mission Valley has one of the most favorable farming climates in the state, making it possible to grow crops like corn that need warmer, milder temperatures.

Not to be outdone by the dairy, the well-equipped farm includes two 30,000-Bushel grain storage bins, two silage pits, a commodity shed, a 20,000 gallons of fuel storage, along with all of the heavy machinery needed for planting and harvesting.

Accessible from the road, 6 center pivots and 10 wheel lines make irrigation and maintenance easy during the hot dry season, typically June-August. Water is abundant thanks to the yearly snow melt that flows down from the Mission range and into the Ninepipe Reservoir.

Native Range Land

Finally, there are nearly 1,100 Acres of breathtaking native range land. Pheasants, white-tail deer, elk, and pronghorn antelope, and even the occasional grizzly bear call Lake County home, and you'll regularly spot them grazing among the golden fields. This acreage works well for pastureland for cattle, too.

Perfectly situated between the Flathead River and Ninepipe Reservoir & Nature Preserve waterfowl like ducks, geese, and herons soar overhead. Eagles and hawks search the fields for prey. There's no shortage of wildlife on the range.

A Place to Call Home

You don't have to be jealous of the cows spectacular views. Four shaded homesteads located throughout the ranch offer a place to rest and enjoy the fruits of your labor. These homes are perfect for ranch employees, visitors, and families.

Road Access & Electricity

Each section of the ranch is easily accessible by maintained gravel roads. The dairy, farms, and homes are powered by electricity that runs along Gallagher Road and Dellwo Road. Morris Road runs in between sections of farmland, and you can follow that into the town of Charlo just to the East.
