Montana comes from the Spanish word montaña, meaning "mountain" and is known as the Big Sky State or The Treasure State. It’s known for wide-open spaces, grassy plains, and towering mountains. It is the true American West at its best.View Properties
Vast skies, fresh, crisp air and crystal-clear water welcome you. There’s no shortage of nature in its purest form, as the Big Sky State is home to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, as well as Triple Divide Peak, where water flows freely into three separate oceans. Adventures are endless as you explore the beautiful and vast landscapes.
Montana’s largest industry is agriculture with extremely fertile soil from the abundance of natural resources. The state boasts almost 28,000 farms and ranches spread across 59.7 million acres. Producing a wide range of commodities, wheat and beef top Montana’s list. However, you’ll also find sweet cherries, sugar beets, seed potatoes and hay, to name a few. The Big Sky state is a national leader in the production of certified organic wheat, dry peas, lentils and flax, and ranks No. 2 in the U.S. for its honey and pollination industry.
Covering 147,000 square miles, Montana is the fourth-largest state in the United States. The state is split into distinct eastern and western regions by the Continental Divide. Most of the major mountain ranges are in the west. About 60 percent of the eastern section is prairie.
Montana is an outdoorsman’s paradise. Big game species include black bears, mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorn antelope, Rocky Mountain elk, Shiras moose, mountain goats, mountain lions, bighorn sheep, turkeys, wolves, and bison.
Cast your line in the Paradise Valley or on Flathead Lake, only two of many prized locations for anglers in Big Sky Country.
