Seize the chance to live on a functioning cattle ranch and raise your family in the old west way, all with quick access to paved roads and grocery stores. In a market where the demand for the acquisition of large swaths of land outweighs available inventory, this ranch offers the opportunity to own a piece of the historic gold rush of the 1860s, while wisely diversifying your wealth portfolio.

Head south on Upper Hat Creek Road off major Hwy 99 to access this incredible spread, or if you are looking for truly effortless entry, there is plenty of room to land the helicopter.  This property even features an airstrip where Cessnas have been known to land since the 1980s.

Comprised of five separate yard sites, ‘Hat Creek Ranch Collection’ has extensive infrastructure in place.  The ranch headquarters can be found on yard site 4, which was known as 88 Ranch, and includes houses, a shop, barns, and a large, working cattle area, as well as plenty of room to land the helicopter for truly effortless travel.  The private and exclusive owner’s retreat is the quintessential ranch home resembling that of a Hollywood western and can be found on yard site 1. The ranch manager’s private residence can be found on yard site 2.  There are houses on yard sites 3 and 5 as well.  Meticulously planned and expertly executed, every yard includes not only a home, but also a turn-key opportunity to continue the age-old tradition of ranching in the Hat Creek basin.

Imagine taking the reins of one of British Columbia's premier, historic ranches, with a herd known for their exceptional genetics and closed herd integrity. This is not just an investment in land; it's an investment in a legacy of quality and excellence – a premiere cattle operation in the heart of British Columbia.  ‘Hat Creek Ranch Collection’ is a farmstead where the pastures and mountain peaks stretch as far as the eye can see; it supports significant AUMs and boasts irrigated feed to ensure a sustainable and prosperous operation.  The Upper Plateau offers robust pastureland where it’s not uncommon to find grass that grows to a horse’s belly in the late summer - just when a rancher needs it most.

Beyond its operational capabilities, ‘Hat Creek Ranch Collection’ offers an escape to a world where nature dictates the rhythm of life. A place for families to reconnect and forge lasting memories while immersing themselves in an authentic ranching lifestyle. Brian Parke, a generational ranching steward of the valley, aptly described the soul of Hat Creek when he stated: ‘this is my home, not the house I live in, but the valley… I feel I have a responsibility to the valley, looking after it and making it better than our predecessors…’
