Video Transcript:

All around are snowcapped peaks, and to the east, the crazy mountains, Willow Creek twists and turns through the green valley. The sandstone cliffs above Fairy Creek shine white in the sun. You will find Willow Creek a place of extraordinary beauty. More than 19,000 acres of pasture, forest, and hills. Seven miles wide and nine miles long.  Willow Creek Ranch is large, even by Montana standards, it’s also only five minutes away from Livingston, a favorite for artists and anglers. In a state where large ranches are notoriously remote, Willow Creek Ranch is one of the rare properties that is both large and well located.

North of interstate 90, Willow Creek Ranch encompasses 19,419 total acres. Willow Creek, in it’s three forks, travel through the ranch for a total of 14.7 miles, Fairy Creek runs through the ranch for 9.3 miles before it empties into the Yellowstone River. Livingston is just two miles from the ranch. Mission Field airport 5 miles east of Livingston has two jet capable runways. Bozeman and the entrance to Yellowstone are only an hour’s drive from the ranch.

Livingston is home to the International Federation of Fly-fishers museum and no wonder, South Western Montana is quite possibly the Valhalla of fly fishing. The legendary Yellowstone River is one of the greatest fly-fishing rivers in the lower 48 states flows through Livingston. World class spring creek fishers, also are just minutes from Willow Creek Ranch. The north fork, south fork, and middle fork, converge below the ridge to form the main strand of the creek. Good sized trout are common here.

The elevation on the ranch rises from 4500 feet to 6900 feet above sea level on the slopes of the ridge. Most of the ranch is just native range land. The ranch currently supports 600 animals, with 260 acres of irrigated meadow, and 900 dry land acres planted in wheat. More than 10 miles of irrigations ditches feed the meadows.

Willow Creek Ranch, which lies at the southern reach of the Yellowstone-Yukon migratory route is easily one of the better Elk Hunting ranches in Montana. Elk also spend fall and winter on the ranch. The current owner uses limited grazing practices which support the native grasses. The game has been managed to create a high quality hunting experiences.

The ranch headquarters at the southeastern quarter of the property includes corrals, sheds, grain bins, and a scale house. Houses for the manager and staff are near the headquarters. The main house, with a large horse barn, sits in the middle of a valley with stunning views of the ridge and the Crazy Mountains. Built in the early 1900s, the house was meticulously renovated under the guise of a local architect.

The Crow Indians knew this place, William Clark explored it, hunters, trappers, and ranchers came here. The railroad arrived and Livingston grew up, but, over the ridge and out of sight, the land remains as it has always been, a land of extraordinary beauty and promise, the Willow Creek Ranch.

Latest Ranch Marketing Video Featured in LA Times

AIP’s ranch marketing video has caught the attention of the Los Angeles Times!  The article, Billionaire’s ranch with ties to Lewis and Clark for sale in Montana, features an $18 million dollar historic cattle ranch that once served as the camp for Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. The property, known as PN Ranch, occupies more than 40,000 acres north of Winifred, Mont., where the Judith and Missouri rivers intersect. The ranch marketing video’s aerial footage captures each unique feature of this vast piece of land while catching the abundant wildlife that roam the property in action.

Not only does the ranch marketing video capture the beautiful landscape and majestic wildlife of PN Ranch, it also tells a story of the deep history of the land. Lewis and Clark made camp in 1805 at the junction of the Judith and Missouri rivers. The site became a prevalent hub for fur traders and paddle-boat traffic and was later used to establish the first military outpost in the Montana Territory in the late 1800s. The warehouse from the Judith Landing Mercantile Post, a log schoolhouse and a rambling frame house built in 1880 are among the historic structures that still remain on the property. The videography captures unique angles of each of these structures and leaves the viewers mind to wonder what life was like when they were built over 100 years ago!

Hard not to fall in love with Montana!

Ranch Marketing Video of PN Ranch

We’ve had the pleasure to spend time in Big Sky country to film a ranch marketing video of PN Ranch in Winifred, Montana.  Wow, Montana is beautiful and full of history!  Did you know that Lewis and Clark set up camp on this site in 1805! Fifty-one years later it became the first military post in Montana Territory, providing a base of commerce for fur traders and riverboats.  PN Ranch also represents one of the oldest working cattle ranches in Montana.  As you will see in the video, PN Ranch is a remote, scenic, and wild operating cattle ranch that has played an important role in the history books of Montana.

The ranch marketing video of PN Ranch will give you a taste of the beauty and history that we saw first hand!  We hope you enjoy it!
