The 4 Ds farm has a lot of possibilities and would make a first class farm or ranch base property. The focus of the farm has been to add improvements to the water and irrigation system, fencing, and access. With a municipal water system and electricity in place, there are multiple options for building homes and improvements in a private, easily accessible, and scenic location. The farm is set up and ready for the producer who wants to focus on production. The pastures were seeded into grass with hay and grazing being the focus, but the improvements added over the last few years make it the right place for someone who wants to live and farm in one of the best locations in the state.
One of the biggest and most attractive features of the farm is its location. Being located next to the town of Greybull and having access to all the amenities for rural living gives the buyer even more options for future use. Greybulls location in the center of the Bighorn Basin and its diversified agricultural and industrial economy assures future growth in the area. With the increasingly popular Big Horn Mountains within 15 miles, and the Bighorn River running through it, recreational opportunities are becoming an important part of the economy of the area. Mild climate and close proximity to airport service from Cody and Billings add to the attraction.
It appears Wyoming is slated for future growth and owning productive land with water rights and options for multiple uses makes a lot of sense in today’s world. The 4 D’s Farm fits the description.
