By Garrett Zoller, Executive Chairman and Principal Broker of Record, LandLeader It’s not every day you see properties for sale boasting tens of thousands of acres. But when they do come onto market, it takes just the right buyer to see the potential in such an expansive property. Fortunately, Cable Creek Ranch, formerly the 9th largest ranch for sale in America at nearly 56,000 acres, found that perfect buyer. Listed for sale by the experienced participants of LandLeader, Cable Creek Ranch presented a rare opportunity to own one of Northeast Oregon’s most impressive working cattle ranches. And digging into the details proves that it truly is an impressive place to call home.

About Cable Creek Ranch

Cable Creek Ranch is nestled in the Blue Mountain Range and includes about 29,000 deeded acres and an additional 27,000 acres of forest grazing land. Over the years, it’s been used to run a continuous cattle operation that regularly houses 500 mother cows, 1,500 yearlings, 300 feedlot cows, and 450 annually bred heifers. Among the many desirable features of Cable Creek Ranch can be found:
  • A 7,500 square foot luxury owner’s estate, located on 90 irrigated acres
  • A 6,000 square foot five-bay shop
  • A small steel airplane hangar
  • A five-bay equipment and storage shed
  • A professionally designed lighted clay shooting range
  • Seven additional homes for managers, guests, and cowboy housing
  • Large hay storage facilities
Also present on the property are multiple barns, tack rooms, and storage areas. Ranching operations are further supported by three feedlots, scales, multiple steel corrals, fully covered cattle working facilities, and more than 500 miles of custom fencing.

What’s Next for the Ranch?

The new owner of Cable Creek Ranch has a wide range of options for how they’d like to use their land. In addition to maintaining its cattle operations, there are also an abundance of recreational uses for the property, as well as approximately 3,000 acres of pre-merchantable timber of various species. There is also the opportunity to simply manage and enjoy this stunning property and the ample amount of flora and fauna that call it home. Thanks to the unique climate of the area, with Cable Creek Ranch experiencing warm Pacific storms up the Columbia River Gorge, there is also a longer than average growing season well suited to hobby or commercial farming. The sale of Cable Creek Ranch is a good sign for the land industry as a whole, representing continued interest in large-scale properties and the sorts of major property undertakings that are only suitable for certain buyers. This sale was further supported by the work of the LandLeader team, which represents cattle ranches, recreational properties, timberland properties, and more across the U.S. Want to keep up to date on the nation’s biggest and best properties for sale?
