The biggest ranch on the market in America just got bigger. The heirs of William Lane, who assembled New Mexico’s Bell Ranch 40 years ago, have elected to include an additional 40,100 acres of canyon country and pastureland in the offering, which now totals 290,100 contiguous deeded acres or 453 square miles. Carrying capacity for the ranch is 5,000AU.
The new price for the Bell is $103 million: $99 million for the land and $4 million for livestock and equipment. That works out to $341 per acre, according to listing brokerage Orvis/Cushman & Wakefield. The price represents a 22 percent reduction below the original asking price.
