Stagecoach Road Organic Wheat Farm
The Stagecoach Road Organic Wheat Farm is a productive organic farm with a proven history of producing high-quality organic wheat. Located approximately 10 miles south of the rural town of Dodson, Montana, this farm is made up of 2,208 +/- total acres, of which 1,460+/- are currently farmed as certified organic, with the remainder a combination of wetlands and rangeland, making this property a valuable waterfowl and migratory bird nesting and brood rearing habitat. Its' location withing a state, regional, and national priority area for conservation of migratory and upland game birds and their habitats encouraged the previous owner to place 740+/- of the deeded grazing acres under Conservation Easement. The primary purpose of this Conservation Easement is to protect, enhance and preserve the integrity of the native habitats while encouraging traditional agricultural uses such as livestock grazing. The terms of the easement are directed at conserving the primary habitats represented on the property, including grasslands interspersed with wetland communities. Wildlife benefiting include sage grouse, sharp-tailed grouse, mule deer, antelope, prairie dogs and a variety of migratory birds. The property borders the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Korsbeck Waterfowl Production Area which comprises similarly valuable wetland and grassland habitat resulting in an expanded footprint of conserved habitat in the immediate area. With amazing views of the Little Rocky Mountains to the south and the vast plains that stretch in all other directions, this property confirms why Montana is known as the Big Sky State. Whether you are a producer looking to get into organic farming for the first time, a current operator, or an investor, this farm is one to consider.
