America's westernmost ranch, the 500,000-acre Bering Pacific Ranches, just hit the market for $19.9 Million.
Mike Coppock wrote back in our April 2018 issue about The Ranch at the Edge of the West, Pat Harvie's working cattle operation on the Aleutian Islands. Harvie established Bering Pacific Ranches, which is located in the region of Alaska known as the Cradle of Storms, with former schoolmate Bruce Hubbard in 1993. Now, with nearly 10,000 head of cattle, Bering Pacific Ranches is one of the largest organic beef operations in the United States.
“The business is now a completely turnkey operation ready for a new owner to take the reins,” Harvie said in a press release. “It has the inventory of cattle, the pastures, and year-round feed to support them as well as the means to market them.”
The listing agent is Bernard Uechtritz, founder of Icon Global Group, a leading ranch and specialist property sales group. In the same press release, Uechtritz added, “Truly the last frontier, this is an incredible one-of-a-kind opportunity to combine business, adventure, and pleasure of isolation and outdoors while expanding the organic cattle production business in North America.”
