What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Completely off grid passive solar home with well, solar to battery electric system, and capacity to grow your own livestock and food.

Property Description

Live off the grid with tons of privacy on 160 acres just 7 miles south of Indian Valley, Idaho. This beautiful piece of land is currently split into 80 acres used for dry land hay and grass farming, with the remaining acreage consisting of pastureland, corrals, and the homestead area. The 932 sq ft passive solar home was built in 2000. 2 bedroom, 1 bath. Concrete walls, south orientation, and good insulation all make this a tight, efficient house. The expandable solar to battery electric system provides 120 Volt AC throughout house, while a rarely needed 6000 Watt generator provides back-up. Charming open concept kitchen/living area with antique wood-burning stove, 4 burner range, propane refrigerator, and DeWils cabinets. Conventional plumbing and bathroom. Currently no water heater but fitted for a propane, solar, or wood heater. A 220' well provides good, consistent water to the ranch, with a 24 Volt solar pump producing about 100 gal/hr. There are 2 water storage tanks: 1000 gal tank for the house and 3000 gal tank for the stock, shop, and garden though an underground system with 9 frost-free hydrants. There are 80 acres currently dedicated to dry land hay farming (alfalfa and grass), with an average yield of 1 to 1.25 ton/acre in 1 cutting. No chemicals or pesticides have been used on this land in at least 18 years, and it could be certified organic with the necessary paperwork. This ranch has supported 50 cow pairs, fed with site-raised hay and grain and the addition of leased summer grazing. A 2400 sq ft hay barn was added in 2012 to provide protected, efficient hay storage. 20' clear height to allow easy unloading of stack wagons, with additional room for equipment storage. In addition to the hay barn, other structures include: 24' X 28' concrete-floored shop, 20' X 40' shed, two 10' X 8' grain bins, 8' X 8' chicken house (with tongue and groove flooring!), and 10' X 15' cellar. There are 4 fenced pastures, 4 hay fields, a corral, and a feed yard. A nicely fenced garden includes 3 apple trees, 1 plum tree, 1 pear tree, and 1 apricot tree, with plenty of space to grow your veggies. This property was an old homestead and features seasonal Hog Creek running through the center with 5 seasonal ponds and 1 year-round reservoir. The ranch sits at 3500' elevation with mountain views and big skies. Wildlife include mule deer, antelope, elk, chukar, huns, partridge, coyote, several types of hawks, bald eagles, golden eagles, cranes, and more. Barn swallows nest on site and control mosquitoes. Excellent opportunities to hunt, fish, hike and ride with lots of public BLM land nearby. Can ride straight out of the gate on to open range. Ben Ross Reservoir, Payette National Forest, and Hells Canyon Recreation area are all in close proximity. Hog Flat Ranch - this is what self-sufficiency looks like. Make it your own.
