Kimberly, Oregon Ranch

The picturesque Big Basin Ranch in eastern Oregon has everything you want and more! The ranch headquarters is located approximately 11 miles south of Kimberly Oregon in the heart of the John Day Fossil Bed National Monument area where visitors from around the world come to see well preserved fossils from critters which roamed the region around 45 million years ago. Consisting of 7,532 deeded acres with varied terrain which includes the John Day River frontage, tabletop sloping pastures, springs, creeks, and pine tree timbered draws makes this a solid cattle ranch with beautiful landscapes. The ranch also hosts a world class home and wildlife including mule deer, antelope, and rocky mountain elk. Along with the private land, there is also nearly 10,000 acres of private Bureau of land Management (BLM) grazing leases allowing for over 1200 animal unit months (AUM’s).

The current owners run the ranch with a small herd of cattle, grow alfalfa hay and conduct projects to add to the wildlife and habitat opportunities. This focus on sustainable stewardship has increased the productivity of the native grasslands, added additional tons of alfalfa in the hay fields, developed 40 plus spring water sources for cattle & wildlife, and significantly reduced the Juniper tree population, benefiting groundwater and helping prevent wildfire.

The ranch borders a portion of the John Day River which is a tributary to the Columbia River. This river source comes mainly from snowpack out of the Strawberry Mountains

The Big Basin Ranch is centrally located in Oregon and is approximately 105 miles from the Redmond Airport which hosts many commercial flights, 125 miles from Bend, Oregon, 225 miles to Portland, Oregon, and 235 miles to Boise, Idaho.
