10 Acres of Hugelcultures, Ponds, Waterways & Gardens 



    We are happy to introduce a one of a kind project and opportunity  

    designed by Sepp Holzer in May 2012. (





A thriving complex of winding hugels that create courtyards filled  


with permanent raised beds. The hugels are stocked with perennial  


and self-seeding annual plants. The hugel courtyard, featuring over 1  


kilometers of 6’ hugels, is sub-irrigated by surrounding ponds. Much  


of the courtyard has already been fenced and has additional  


irrigation installed for the hugels raised beds and gardens. The  


irrigation is primarily fed by the uppermost pond and features a  


back-up pump that draws water directly from the lower ponds.  



 The 3 acres of waterways feature seven distinct water bodies that can  


be individually regulated. The energized and crystal clear waters of  


the ponds vary in depth up to 16’ and are primed for a natural  


aquaculture system; they already host fish and crawdad populations.  


Each pond has a unique role in the system such as a fish nursery, a  


swimming hole, providing irrigation, a wildlife habitat & turtle  


nursery, or growing garden mulch.




The rest of the land features 35 acres of beautiful gentle accessible hillside rich in a variety of wildflowers and native plantsas well as 

35 acres of sloped fenced pastures with stunning views over Flathead Lake and  


          the Mission Mountains.
