Along the border of Baker and Malheur County, in picturesque Eastern Oregon lies the 8,811+/- acre Willow Creek Ranch East. This working cattle ranch consists of a complete spring, summer, and fall grazing system. Gentle rolling sagebrush hills lead into the mature forests of California Mountain. The exquisite landscape is marked by expansive grasslands, open rangeland, a gorgeous mix of timber and mature deciduous trees, wildlife loving brush, and high elevation forbes. A series of springs and creeks provide a perennial source of water for livestock and wildlife. Immense views of multiple mountain ranges are seen behind the lush slopes of the ranch from the high ridges. Vistas to the east showcase Malheur reservoir and the communities that remain to work the land.
The land’s rich history includes profitable mines from the turn of the century and remains of the communities and homesteads that that existed to work the engaging environment. Cattle management is ripe with potential because of the continuously connected pastures and diverse elevations. Native grasses, perennial streams, and springs provide staples for cattle. Hunting opportunities are superior with a variety of ecosystems creating habitat where Mule deer and elk thrive.
A BLM allotment is being offered with the sale of this ranch providing a well-rounded opportunity for later season use. Willow Creek Ranch East is being offered separately or in combination with the attractive Willow Creek Ranch West which includes 10,677 acres and contiguously adjoins.
