Description

Boasting nearly 800 acres of deeded undulating pasture, sprawled across 6 separate titles, and nestled alongside Green Lake Provincial Park, this very rare ranching opportunity will take your breath away.

What began as a small operation with about 30 young heifers has blossomed into an impressive organic meat business that supports, on average, 300 animals. In existence for over 30 years this ranch has been meticulously designed and crafted what is now a well-established and renowned ranch in one of the most scenic locations in the interior of British Columbia. In addition to being one of BC’s premier ranching operations, the XH Buffalo Ranch gained world-wide notoriety in 2015 when it supplied genuine buffalo skulls and hides that were used in the Academy Award winning epic “The Revenant”, which was filmed in Alberta.

At the heart of the ranch is a bold and beautiful log residence. With rustic elegance and a charming interior design this 4,341 square foot home is a sight to behold. Featuring 7 sizable bedrooms, and what could easily be converted to a lower-level secondary suite for ranch hands, or to be used to house family and friends. Its imposing yet comforting aesthetic is entirely reminiscent of a country western movie, as it stares out over the farmyard and surrounding pastures and animals offering one-of-a-kind views that take you back to a time when Bison roamed freely across North America.

In addition to the main residence, the property is dotted with farm related outbuildings, each with their own purpose and utility. Covered storage is never hard to find, and 2 additional log cabins, one of which is move in ready, add to the appeal and functionality of the ranch. The sellers were also able to obtain the appropriate licensing to operate a fully approved slaughterhouse on the property, allowing them to prepare meat effectively and efficiently, and limiting undue stress from transportation. To further add utility and value to the property, the sellers constructed a hide tanning shop where the owners masterfully prepare hides and skulls for individual purchase.

A huge draw to raising Bison, other than the love of the animals and lifestyle, is for the meat. The Canadian Bison Association recommends bison meat as a healthy and natural alternative to beef. As well as being a natural red meat, buffalo meat is low in fat, low in cholesterol, and high in protein. No antibiotics, chemicals or growth hormones are used in raising XH buffalo.
