In 1918 FJ Hartell set foot on the most beautiful land he had ever seen. From the breathtaking expansive Rocky Mountain views to the nutrient rich grasses and cool mountain stream meandering through the property, FJ had found his home to raise his family. Now covering 1,738 acres (2.72 sections) of land, the historic ranch is home to the native birds and wildlife in Southern Alberta. Moose, deer, Elk and fox wander here amongst the spruce, aspen and willows. In the spring, the hills showcase silvery lupins, shooting stars, wild strawberries, saskatoon's and gooseberries. The land has been this way for centuries and this is how the Hartell's wish it to remain. At inception the ranch raised award winning Suffolk Punch horses. 150 brood mares once grazed this land. Over the years it became a cattle ranch and partnered with the Alberta Oil and Gas industry. Pump jacks and cattle co-exist quietly together. The land is treated with the utmost care and respect. There are 1200 acres ..(see add't remarks) of native grass and approx. 330 acres are currently cultivated. Good producing water wells on the property. The views throughout the property like none other; stunning. There is one home included with the property. It was built in the 1960's and sits up on a knoll above Tongue Creek. The home is currently rented to a quiet, mature tenant. A historic barn stands near the home. The sellers will add siding to the barn this summer to protect its structural integrity. ~Click on the movie reel to view a video of the property.~
