Home, home on the range for sale

BC buffalo ranch for sale has a connection to Leonardo DiCaprio.

Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam… well, if you want one, there’s one for sale out in British Columbia for a shade over $3.35 million—about the same price as new home in west-end Toronto, only less cool.

The property is known as the XH Buffalo Ranch, and is for the first time since it was initialized in 1986. It features nearly 800 acres of land and features a log house that contains enough bedrooms that one could sleep in a different one each day of the week. If you really felt decadent.

But wait, there’s more. There’s a connection to Hollywood A-lister, Leonardo DiCaprio—the ranch supplied genuine buffalo hides and skulls for 2015 movie, The Revenant in which he won the Best Actor Award. For those keeping track, DiCaprio has also won the Best Supporting Actor award for the 1993 flick What's Eating Gilbert Grape. The Reveanat was filmed in nearby Alberta.

Located at 70 Mile House, approximately two hours from Kamloops and five hours from Vancouver, the property is next door to the Green Lake Provincial Park, with its pastureland spread across six separate titles. It also has a fully operating organic meat business capable of supporting up to 300 buffalo.

Don’t let the fact that it’s a working buffalo ranch fool you, the main house is a stunner.

Seven large bedrooms are contained within the 4,341 square foot main house, the two-level building offers fantastic vistas of the farmyard, pastures, animals, and will make you wonder if this is where the idea for that song came about.

There are two additional log cabins on the property—one ready for living now by staff, if you want to run the place as a business.

The property is licensed to operate as a fully approved slaughterhouse, allowing the owner to prepare meat effectively and efficiently on site to avoid animal stress during transportation off-site.

There is also a hide tanning shop on the property for preparing hides and skulls for commercial sale.  

As for the actual farming, bison meat is, per the Canadian Bison Association, a healthy and natural alternative to beef. It’s a low-fat red meat, low in cholesterol, and high in protein. The ranch owners state that no antibiotics, chemicals, or growth hormones have been used in raising its XH buffalo.
