In 1864, William Mulvey and his wife, Catherine, emigrated from Ireland to Montana’s North Boulder River valley, where they homesteaded the original 160 acres that eventually became Mulvey Gulch Ranch. Today, the ranch spans over 92,000 acres (more than 140 square miles) and consistently has between 3-4 thousand cattle grazing its pastures.

While our ranching practices have evolved over the years to address changing health needs and environmental challenges, our commitment to animal and environmental stewardship has remained the hallmark of our brand.

Family Tradition

Mulvey Gulch Ranch has grown considerably under Jerry’s management for the last twenty years. Today, we manage the ranch’s land and water resources, along with its inhabitants, in a manner that enhances the long-term sustainability of the environment. Our cattle, as well as an immense population of wildlife, enjoy our constant attention to improvements in forage specifics—such as alfalfa, sainfoin, clover and a variety of healthy grasses—and the management of water for the most efficient distribution to pastures and animals.


A Bold Frontier

Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, winding rivers, big sky and endless wildlife, Mulvey Gulch Ranch is a pristine reminder of the American West’s rich history and natural beauty. This is a land made for fishing, hiking and horseback riding—and one we invite you to explore.
