What could be your own big, historic ranch is near Jon Tester's, but yours would be more than 14 times as big. It's also a Montana bargain at $17,450,000.

(The Tester Family farm near Big Sandy, Montana is approximately 1,800 acres and has been in their family for over 100 years.)

So the big piece of property in question here is also "near" Big Sandy and is currently listed with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Montana Properties - Big Sky. (Don Pilotte is the listing agent.)

According to the official listing on Realtor.com, this large property is commonly known as ZY Brown Ranch and Chase Hill Outfitters. It's located southeast of Big Sandy and has two main dwellings, along with several historic homesteads. How cool is that? (If you've never been on an old homestead, you're missing out.) This place is a fully functioning ranch with livestock and tons of farmland.

  • PRICE: $17,450,000
  • 6 bedrooms
  • 3.5 bathrooms
  • 2,496 square feet
  • 25,876 acre lot
  • 418 Chase Hill Drive-Eskay Rd, Big Sandy, MT 59520
  • Property Type: Farm/Ranch

It's also interesting to note that this property has never been on the market. At least that's what this Realtor.com listing says. The assumption would be that it's been in the same family since it was homesteaded? It's unclear.

These pictures were taken by professional photographer Chris Dickinson at the 88 Ranch located outside of Douglas, and they perfectly show the love between ranchers and the animals they raise and work with 365 days a year.
