Circle 9 Spring Creek Ranch Profiled by The Wall Street Journal

We are thrilled that The Wall Street Journal profiled Circle 9 Spring Creek Ranch as a “House of the Day.” Resting in the shadows of the rugged Tobacco Root and Highland Mountains in the historic and lush Jefferson River valley, the ranch offers gorgeous scenery and miles of river and restored spring creek fishing, as well as productive pivot-irrigated farmland.

An excerpt from the story reads:  “Terry McClinch bought this 714-acre ranch in Silver Star, Mont., because he could see the potential. ‘I think it’s Montana at its best—the perfect combination of recreational and traditional ranching,’ says Mr. McClinch, adding that the property let him combine his love of fishing and hunting with his interests in agriculture and cattle.”
