Salmon Creek Farm is a lovely 67± acre river property set in the Snake River Canyon ten minutes from Hagerman, Idaho. With this location, an owner enjoys a mild four-season climate in one of the state’s most coveted outdoor recreation areas. The farm features over a half-mile of frontage on the Snake River and Salmon Falls Creek and 50± acres of sprinkler-irrigated cropland and horse pasture. A beautifully appointed one-bedroom/one-bath home with attached workshop (built in 1998 and remodeled in 2007) is perched above the river and enjoys unimpeded views across to the cliffs, springs, and islands of beautiful Thousand Springs State Park. Other improvements include a separate four-bay shop, outdoor riding arena, loafing shed, and round pen. The property’s private boat dock opens up access to the river for all forms of water sports from waterfowl hunting to water skiing. Deer, pheasants, and quail find refuge in the property’s robust riparian habitat, while ducks and geese take advantage of a one-acre waterfowl pond developed in cooperation with Ducks Unlimited. Federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management adjoin the property and provide opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, and dirt-bike riding. The farm is covered by a conservation easement held by the Southern Idaho Land Trust that allows for continued residential, agricultural, and recreational uses. This area is rich in pioneer history, and the property is located at the site of the Overland Stage Line ferry crossing which operated in the 1870s. With frontage on US Highway 30, Salmon Creek Farm is easily accessible to the resort amenities of Sun Valley, located 90 miles north of the property, and shopping, medical facilities, and commercial air service in Twin Falls, just a half-hour east.

“Most brokers have a strong sense of independence, so brokerages work around that, but Hall and Hall is not about the one working alone—their strength and longevity is built on the group, on the family,” explains Tyler Jacobs. “It’s the basic fundamentals and traditional values that we’ve thrived on since the company was founded back in 1946.”
Our Hall and Hall broker, Randy Shelton, kept us in the loop as though it were. Our sale hinged on that of larger surrounding parcels, and when an initial offer fell through, Randy went back to the drawing board and found a suitable buyer who shared our values. That meant a lot to us, as our property had been in the family for more than 100 years.
From the first time I walked through the door, I sensed Hall and Hall’s highest goals were to understand who I was and build a relationship, to understand what made my property special, and to find the buyer. Their discipline and focus was apparent. Throughout the entire process, their approach towards reality was different from the experiences I have had previously. Genuine would be the word I would use to describe everyone at Hall and Hall.
I interviewed 4 agents and selected Hall and Hall because of the agency’s reputation for expertise in high end ranch property and global marketing. I had the pleasure of working with Tim Murphy on the sale of a family property in the Paradise Valley, Montana. We believe he represented our family interests well and contributed to the integrity of the property by joining together buyer and seller and a shared love for this special place in our lives.
Bill McDavid was an outstanding and very patient partner in this sale. His expertise in the market and marketing of the property was excellent. I would use him again in a heartbeat to either buy or sell a ranch property.
“Guns, bear spray and handsaws: These aren’t the tools of your average luxury real-estate agent. But ranch brokers like Mr. Murphy, a Bozeman-based partner at Hall & Hall, occupy a unique and increasingly challenging niche in the world of multimillion-dollar property.”
“When it was time to invest in a ranch for our family, we knew we needed to work with Hall and Hall. The expertise is unsurpassed.”
In 1988, Joel Leadbetter became a partner at Hall and Hall where he has been instrumental in completing complicated, high-profile deals such as the recent sale of Texas’ historic 512,000-acre Waggoner Ranch.
“The professionalism, preparation, and overall positive demeanor exhibited… were truly impressive… I have never before worked with a more dedicated, knowledgeable, and level-headed sales professional.”
I had been looking for the right property for several years and Elliott Davenport’s insight into the quail plantation market and his ability to think strategically was instrumental in helping me find our new place. Elliott was helpful on all technical aspects of contracting and due diligence. His post closing help with hiring and contractors made the process much easier as well.
I have purchased 4 ranches through Hall and Hall over the past 20 years, and there is simply no other team in the world like them. They have navigated complexity, professionally attended to every detail, operated with fairness and integrity, and demonstrated an unwavering commitment to me– whether representing me or the person on the other side of the deal.
