The McWilliams Farm is a diverse property that lies one hour north of Miles City, Montana. This 1,245 acre farm currently serves as home base for roughly 800 head of sheep. The owner in past years raised grain and other cover crops, but since has seeded back to native grasses for livestock. Land Make these versatile 1,245 acres a place to get away or escape to and unwind, or be so inspired to make it your own.  A modular home sits on the property with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The sunrises are unmatched and the stars are infinite in rural eastern Montana. Little Dry Creek flows through the property year-round.  The Redhorse Creek runs seasonally. Recreation Located in game management district 701, the area is known for abundant Mule deer, Pronghorn antelope, and the occasional White Tail deer with some of the nation’s best elk hunting within 60 miles of the ranch. For the predator hunter, the ranch has plenty of coyotes and a variety of small game animals.  There are 1,600 miles of shoreline around Fort Peck Lake, which is about 60 miles away. The lake is known for its boating and fishing with trophy walleye, northern pike, bass and catfish. An easy commute from the ranch gets you to one million acres of public land access. Agriculture The farm is 1,245 total contiguous acres of rolling hills. The majority is good native rangeland. Around 241 acres are tillable farming.  Grass-filled dikes are watered on good years by creek overflow and have the potential to be captured. There are several good reservoirs that hold water on the good years, and  others that could be strategically developed for wildlife. The lush native grasses can provide grazing for sheep, goats, horses, or cattle. Want to try your hand at raising a crop? Some of the acreage has historically been seeded in a variety of crops and grains. There are grain bins to rent out to local farmers or use for your own seed storage. Water/Mineral Rights & Natural Resources Little Dry Creek provides water for any livestock in addition to three seasonal drainages, an open spring in the corral lot, two self-watering tanks and a hydrant in the corrals, and a 60 foot deep well that produces 15-18 GPM. Another potential income endeavor could be mining of gravel located on the property. There are several mining opportunities throughout the farm.
