Silver Sage Farm

30040 Weaver Springs Ln, Burns, OR 97720

Silver Sage Farm is an eastern Oregon outfit nestled in the high desert of Harney County approximately 25 miles south of Burns Oregon.  Rolling hills with sandy loam make up the terrain for this large operation as it is located in some of the highest yields for hay production per acre in the region.

The farm consists of over 10,000 continuously deeded acres plus 240 acres of State of Oregon lease land.  Of that acreage, 5,000+/- acres are irrigated under 69 pivots with 3,000+/- acres of that currently are certified organic.  The Seller is willing to consider purchasing back 10,000 tons of Organic hay annually.

In addition to the large amounts of irrigation infrastructure can be throughout the large deeded.  A total of 10 hay covers, 3 frame built homes, 3 manufactured homes, 3 shops, 2 truck scales (60 ton/20 ton), 3 rock pits, corrals, & a 2,200’ concrete feed bunk separated into 6 fields.  The owner is willing to consider leasing back the feed bunk for their dry dairy cattle operation.  Silver Sage has a 2,000 head CAFO permit for the lot for their replacement dairy heifers.

Located off a paved county-maintained road that dead ends at the property entrance.  Within 20 minutes of the farm one can export in any direction off 4 major highways: Hwy 20, Hwy 78, Hwy 205, & Hwy 395.  The farm is also located roughly 5 hours from hay press facilities in Boardman, Junction City, & Aurora to export hay overseas.

The land is home to all types of wildlife.  With the continuous acreage, the land allows landowner preference tags for hunting.  Mule deer, antelope, & elk are seen throughout the area grazing pivots as they are highly attracted to the feed.  Several other animal species such as bald eagles, hawks, coyotes, & more can be seen throughout the year.

The land is perimeter fenced with cross fencing throughout, & an additional 240 acres from a State Lease.  Silver Sages location along with the current infrastructure in place creates an extremely large operation for the area.
IMPROVEMENTS  

Throughout the deeded acreage improvements are found with homes, shops, hay barns, corrals, rock pits, scales, & more.  There are a total of 6 homes for workers with 3 of them being manufactured homes while the remaining are stick built.  Most of the homes have an attached/detached garage or some sort of cart port and are 3 bedroom 2 bathrooms.

Hay storage facilities are located conveniently along good roads.  Two locations are equipped with multiple hay barns & shops, one of which has five 6,480sqft hay barns and a 6,864sqft commodity building with additional cover, truck scales and fuel tanks are available as well.  Another has 3 hay sheds and a large shop.

Across the ground are 3 cinder pits to save money & maintain roads, pivot tracks, pads, & areas around the improvements.  Two sets of truck scales can be found near hay storage facilities, one is 60 ton & the other is 20 ton.
CATTLE  
The Farm/Ranch currently has a 2,000 CAFO permit for replacement heifers on the ground year around.  With the deeded acres being perimeter fenced & cross fenced, the current owners kick cows out in the fall to graze any remaining feed from pivot corners & elsewhere.  There are three corral setups in various locations.
A 2200’ concrete feed lot is beautifully built & designed.  An 8ft wide concrete slab runs the whole distance for feed tractors to get in and out all year.  The whole distance has manual head gates & there are a total of 6 separate lots.  A large sorting alley leads to a loading chute to move cattle smoothly.  All fencing and gates are metal & water troughs are conveniently located between fields. 

IRRIGATION
With over 5,000 acres of water rights nearly every acre is under pivots.  Of the 69 pivots, a majority are Zimmatic but range in brand, some have LESA systems.  A large portion of the pivots are tied into the same mainlines with existing wells & some sections have variable frequency drives making it easy to move water around.  The majority of the fields are in alfalfa or triticale. 

SURROUNDING AREA
Harney County, located in the expansive high deserts of rural Eastern Oregon, ranks as the 10th largest county in the United States, encompassing over 10,000 square miles.  This vast area boasts diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife.  At the southern tip of the county, one can marvel at the stunning vistas of Steens Mountain, which oversees the Alvord Desert & Trout Creek Mountains.  The northern region features the Malheur National Forest, Silvies River, & timber country.

Wildlife abounds, ranging from large game such as elk, pronghorn, & mule deer to a variety of smaller critters and bird species typical of the Pacific Northwest.  The county’s primary community, Burns, is situated midway between Central Oregon & the Idaho Border.  A two-hour trip to the west leads to Bend, while two hours east reaches the Idaho border and the Treasure Valley.
