The Pitchfork Ranch, founded in 1878, has a deep history in northwest Wyoming and a reputation that spans the country.
A working cattle ranch at its core, its rare to see a contiguous piece of land this size on the market. The ranch encompasses 96,115 total acres. There are 13,886 deeded acres on the ranch that are dispersed amongst State and BLM leased acreage. This land connects to two Forest Service permits which amount to 44,984 acres. State land makes up 31,600 acres and BLM ground is the remaining 5,645 acres.
Owner-rated to carry 1300 cows year around, the Pitchfork checks all the boxes. Abundant springs on the ranch stay open year around. The Pitchfork headquarters is even spring fed, with one line for house water and one line for yard water.
Extensive work has been done to maintain the facilities that the Pitchfork has to offer. Eight houses are located at ranch headquarters, along with quality working facilities and several barns. The Pitchfork is one of the only properties on the upper Greybull River plumbed with natural gas, to keep utility bills at a manageable cost.
Being sold as a turnkey operation, the ranch is fully stocked with a quality cow herd and all the equipment to operate. Located in a high desert and mountain environment the cows have been culled extensively to be able to thrive here.
With over 1100 acres under irrigation, 660 acres under new 2021 Zimmatic pivots, the ranch can not only feed its cattle but can operate a hay enterprise as well. With all the irrigated ground being over 6400 feet in elevation, grass meadows best suit the environment. All of the fields are planted in a well-established orchard grass, alfalfa, and meadow brome mix.
