Looking for “a country western slice of high-brow rural living?” Look no further than Forbes magazine, which has assembled a list of U.S.ranches and farms whose prices give its readers something to reach for. Many of the properties are in blue-ribbon trout country. Whether in Jackson, WY ($175 million) or Steamboat, CO (a thrifty $59.9 million), there are plenty of properties here that typify atypical rural living. The most attainable? This north New Jersey equestrian estate for $11 million. The died-and-gone-to-heaven choice? Perhaps this 3,000 acre Sun River ranch in Augusta, MT.
Tax refunds are right around the corner.
