To the south of Lima, only 94 miles, is where the bustling town of Idaho Falls, ID sits. There is an estimated 52,716 people who call the city home.

The Chute Canyon West Ranch consists of 946.1+/- acres with 6 pivots, a home, and several ranch improvements.

Approximately 720 acres are under sprinkler irrigation. There are another 160 acres that can be flood irrigated, depending on the water situation in a given year.


Current ownership of Chute Canyon Ranch has implemented a combination of pasture grazing and hay production on the irrigated lands. Typical production of the hay-only side is in the 3-4 ton-per-acre range. Investment has been made in some pivots with new seeding. All infrastructure is workable and 2 pivots are brand new!


Secondary only to Agriculture, Beaverhead County is well known for its recreation, particularly elk hunting and fishing. The ranch is conveniently located within a short drive from the Red Rock, Beaverhead River, and countless other lakes and streams providing Blue-Ribbon Trout fishing.

The ranch is located in Hunting District 300, which is a general draw for residents. Every fall the elk seek the safety of the irrigated lands as the population of hunters increase on the public lands. Several elk in the 300+ class have been harvested on the ranch.
