Looking for an irrigated farm? You're search is over! This beautiful irrigated farm located on the Missouri River in McCone County, Montana, near Wolf Point, Montana, is now offered for sale to the public. Developed and operated by the same farming family for three generations, this is the very first time this irrigated farm is available to purchase. It is worth your time to come and view this wonderful farm in order to see how this farm will improve your current operation and to see what an excellent job the owners have done developing this irrigated farm into the Montana treasure it is today.
This prime irrigated farm has 2,792+/- total acres available to purchase. Deeded acres total 2,726+/- acres. Cropland acres total 2,501+/- acres. Current irrigated acres total 1,042+/- acres. The water rights for the irrigation network of this farm are from the majestic Missouri River. These water rights are privately owned and the water may be applied at the rate of 11,200 gallons per minute over 1,745 irrigated acres. What this means for you is that you may be able to develop additional irrigated acres from current dryland acres and/or you may be able to increase water consumption in order to produce high water consumption crops on current irrigated acres. Additionally, the irrigation network of this farm (in-fact, the the entire farm itself) is in no way bound by any EQIP contract or other governmental regulation which would inhibit your ability to improve this farm as you desire. What this means for you is that because all the irrigation development of this farm has been done at the owners expense, you are not bound to inherit or uphold any existing improvement contracts or maintenance agreements that so often accompany farms with irrigation improvements. This combination of substantial privately held water rights, potential for additional development of irrigated acres and absense of existing governmental contracts to honor is very rare indeed.
