Situated in Barrhead County, Alberta, ‘Pembina Ranch’ is located in the heart of an area known for innovative practices in mixed farming. Full of multi-generational families with solid roots in the region, the locals understand the importance of the community hall as well as lending each other a hand gathering cattle in the Fall. Whether marshalling yearling steers out of the creek, or watching the dairy farmer planting corn with a new state-of-of-the-art planter, ‘Pembina Ranch’ is situated in a region that is known for offering a plethora of farming options.
‘Pembina Ranch’ is comprised of three quarters, totalling 475 acres, including the ranch headquarters. The south half offers over 260 arable acres, and with a history of cattle on the land, the built-in nitrogen will help to offset the high cost of fertilizer. With very few rocks to contend with, run the High-Speed Disc in the Spring and watch the canola or the corn thrive throughout the growing season. With Highway 764 running the length of the eastern border and Township Road 574 on the southern border, access will never be an issue, whether running cattle liners or trailers full of grain in the Fall; even the school bus benefits from ease of access. ‘Pembina Ranch’ offers acres that farmers and ranchers can bank on.
The yard boasts numerous improvements, including a farmhouse with a hearth-warming wood stove and an outdoor boiler system to help offset the utility bills. There was a recent upgrade to the septic tank, and while the house is ready for the new owner’s to make their own, the shingles have already been purchased and are ready to be installed. The pipe-built corral was built by ranchers with a deep understanding of how to work cattle in a safe and reliable way. Fences are set up to easily move cattle from the yard to the northern and eastern quarters without disturbing the crops.
With numerous water wells, in addition to spring and creek-fed dugouts throughout the property, ‘Pembina Ranch’ offers excellent water for the livestock. Significant shelterbelts are in place as well, proffering excellent opportunities for the hunter in the family. Neslted alongside the Pembina River, there are excellent locations to enjoy a family picnic after a long day spent baling.
Not only does the south-half have a history of producing big crops, there is also the potential for a lift on investment by subdividing off the yard site. With it’s stirrup-high grass and ample water, the northern quarter is ideal for putting pounds on cattle. Furthermore, there is an opportunity to open up a few more acres on the west side of the quarter.
