Here is a rare chance to own a secluded, sustainable farm, steeped in history from the mid-1800s! Current owners are only the 2nd family to live and work on this secluded property. This farm is 142.03 acres tucked away in a horseshoe bend of the Snake River. 360* panoramic views on all sides.
Access the Snake River at each end of the farm. On the west end is the majestic Indian Head Mountain across the river. On the east end is the Historic Domby Pumphouse and Domby ditch.
Many other additional recreational and leisure activities off the farm are within a day\'s drive from the property.
Over a 1/4 mile of Snake River frontage allows for excellent recreational opportunities. Deer, elk, and the occasional antelope have been seen on the property. Geese, snow geese, turkeys, pheasants, quail, doves, and ducks have been harvested from the property. The Snake River is popular for bass, crappie, perch, and catfish.
Raise numerous crops with no worries about running short of water or paying for water rights. The State Certified rights were Grandfathered in from the mid-1800s and allow for 4 acre-feet of water for each acre watered during the season. Three wells on the home site.
The elevation is 2100 ft. Mild winters, extended growing season, abundant water; no worries even in drought years. seclusion, and level sandy soil, make this an extremely desirable property for farming or recreational use.
