Raise your hand if you are ready to cultivate a new lifestyle! Ditch your corporate job, move to the country, live in a yurt, and own a thriving flower farm that that supplies florists across Montana. Killing Frost Farms and Farm to Florist have excellent notoriety and goodwill in the Montana flower scene and are offered for sale with this incredible property. The real estate comprises just under 13 acres, with 3.5 acres behind 8’ elk fence, and of that, about 1.75 acres of cultivated growing space, leaving approximately 9.5 acres for pasture, spring-fed pond, and a stunning building site overlooking the farm. The 30’ yurt was sourced in 2022 from Shelter Designs out of Missoula and features a fully functional kitchen with on-demand water heater and 4-season comfort provided by a mini-split heat pump and a high efficiency wood stove. The “barn” is 20’ x 50’ with 12’ awnings on each side, metal roof, and a solar array. Continued... The interior of the shop is separated into three spaces: a full bathroom with clawfoot tub and 4-person infrared sauna, a 20 x 10 walk-in cooler, and an oversized double garage. The barn is insulated with polyurethane foam, has propane Rinnai heat and an on-demand propane water heater. Other outbuildings include a 72 x 24 greenhouse heated by propane so you can get an early start on planting each season, a 72 x 24 shade tunnel (which can be converted to greenhouse), and an unassembled 72 x 24’ greenhouse kit with a prepped and leveled build site. On the east end of the property is the sheep pasture, with two large metal loafing sheds, and 16 head of Barbados Black Belly hair sheep, negotiable for the right buyer who will love them and appreciate their amazing land management skills. Also included are the farm vehicles: a 2021 John Deere tractor with implements, a BCS Two-Wheel tractor, a 2007 Isuzu NRR Reefer Truck, and a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Flatbed. Whether you are an experienced or aspiring farmer, this is a manageable operation and truly a plug & play working farm. It includes all the tools and equipment necessary to take the reins today and continue its success. It’s a good life, and a great way to contribute to the diversity of floriculture, reduce climate-impacting travel by supplying regional florists, and add shelter and fuel for honey bees and native pollinators. This property is located just 15 minutes from the historic downtown district of Montana's capital city. Known for its thriving art scene, top notch breweries, friendly vibes, and world-class mountain biking, Helena is loved by locals and coveted by visitors from across the globe. We have unsurpassed access to outdoor recreation in every direction: lakes, rivers, mountains, and streams. Explore & experience the serenity and vibrancy of the landscape and life under the Big Sky!
