In the years following the 1847 colonization of Utah, thousands of farmers, ranchers, and orchardists watched their crops and animals flourish in the natural wealth found across the Beehive state. 

Over 170 years later, collectors, investors and gentleman ranchers still own productive farms and ranches in Utah. They are drawn to the state because of the natural beauty and the accessible modern, indulgent amenities. The farm and ranch experts here specialize in luxurious homes on some of the most beautiful land in the world and understand what today’s modern ranch collector wants.

Building a Legacy of Land and Fortune

Ranches in Utah have long been popular with those wishing to invest.  There is a limited supply of privately owned land in Utah keeping the demand for such property high. Subsequently, prices have been rising and are forecast to do well in the future. 

Many ranch owners come to Utah to build a lasting legacy. They want something they can put their name on and call their own. Great investment potential combined with incredible natural beauty presents a unique opportunity for rewarding ownership and stewardship.  

Lifestyle

You don’t have to be a life-long farmer to buy a ranch.  The Wild West is within your reach. Many properties come with fulltime ranch-hands who know how to work the ground and will take care of your property while you are away. 

Farms, ranches and orchards are in high demand in Utah particularly if they have a recreational component like fishing, hunting, and/or water sports. Most farms and ranches in Utah are a stones throw from outdoor destinations that most recreationalists only dream of and in which Utah prides itself including the greatest snow on earth. 

Access to Public Land

Almost 70 percent of Utah is public land leaving only 3 out of 10 acres available for private ownership. There are five National Parks in Utah, numerous State Parks and National Forests along with millions of acres of Bureau of Land Management land. Ranches and farms that border these lands are in high demand because the owners have use of their own property as well as use of the public lands by acquiring a permit.
