Looking for space? Here’s 50,000 acres on the market in California.
Spanning 50,500 acres across four counties, the N3 Cattle Company ranch is the largest land offering in California according to California Outdoor Properties. There have been rumors that the state itself could be interested in it as the site of a new public state park, and the property would certainly provide a spacious option. According to the listing, it offers 80 square miles of “diverse terrains, flora, fauna, and important watersheds and creeks,” and 200 miles of well-maintained private roads that are “ready for hiking, trail running, mountain biking, and ATVing.”
What’s truly incredible about the N3 Cattle Company ranch, though, is that this is the first time it’s been on the market in 85 years. In that time, it has passed through four generations of ranchers, including the current fourth-generation owners who continue to preserve the Western wildlife and landscapes that one might have seen on the property a hundred years ago.
In terms of its cattle operation, the ranch supports 650 cow/calf pairs year-round, 1500 cow/calf pairs seasonally, or 3,200 stockers seasonally. The property includes 5 corrals and fencing and cross-fencing. It is also described in the listing as an “optimum habitat” for Trophy blacktail deer, tule elk, wild pig, turkey, quail, dove, rabbit, ground squirrel, and raccoon.
Whether you’re in the market for a massive ranch or daydreaming of wide open spaces, take a look at the room to roam on this incredible, expansive piece of land.
