Sale Description

The area around Bay Tree, Alberta has a great deal of history, dating back to 1914 when the settlers arrived.  They knew they hit the jackpot to find such a place to farm and raise a family.  Now Gemvale Stock Farm, the name ranchers banked on for 50 years for award-winning cattle, is proud to offer 'Prime Time at the Border'.  This ranch has carefully sculpted its genetics to design cattle that produce.  The Murphy family managed the land the same way; staying up to date with farming practices to solidify big returns year after year.

‘Prime Time at the Border’ is being sold in 3 parcels and has a[] total of 310 acres, of which over 190 are arable.  Located just one-half mile north of the Bay Tree General Store, parcels 2 and 3 are bordered to the east by paved Range Road 131.  There is also one mile of northern boundary access from Township Road 792.  Close to the BC border, it is a mere 20-minute drive west to arrive at Dawson Creek - ‘Mile Zero of the Alaska Highway’.

Parcel 1 consists of 161 acres, with approximately 72 acres cultivated on the north side of the creek and approximately 40 cultivated acres to the south side.  The south side of the creek also offers an optimal building site.  There is some merchantable timber as well, which offers many options for the new owner.

[]Parcel 2 has a total of 124 acres, of which over 80 acres are arable with 26 acres currently in timothy.  A perfect place to drop off your prize heifers and watch them grow with 58 acres of pasture.  There is great shelterbelt with plenty of water, or remove the fence and farm this land from one end to the other.

Both Parcels 1 and 2 have a gentle slope to the west, with good drainage into the creek that flows to the Pouce Coupe River.  The timothy will be at its peak in 2022, providing great revenue with very little inputs.

Parcel 3, a 25-acre parcel, would be a perfect setting for your new[] home.  This is one of the most sought-after acreages in the area. Not only is it almost unheard of in today's hot market to find an acreage of this size, but one where ‘pride of ownership’ shines through is rare indeed.  Mature trees surround the property, which includes a 3-bedroom modular home with recent updates and other solid outbuildings.  As a bonus, water is piped from the Bonanza water treatment plant.  Stock the dugout with fish, saddle up the horses, just like Jean McRann did for many years, and enjoy this property for years to come.

Like any business, the ability to adapt to the current marketplace is key. The Murphy’s started in the Polled Shorthorn business in Neville, Saskatchewan, then transitioned into the Charolais breeding program; they continued evolving to build one of the most desired Red Angus herds in Canada.  The time has now come for part of this ranch to sell.  Property like 'Prime Time at the Border' does not come along very often in a lifetime - don’t miss this Bay Tree beauty.
