Location: Located in Lincoln County, Washington, between Edwall and Sprague. The property is about 45-minutes northeast by car to Spokane, Washington. Lincoln County lies on the channeled Scablands, also known as the Big Bend Plateau, which is made up of a system of channels eroded into the bedrock by glacial rivers and streams which flowed from the northeastern corner of the state. It lies between 1,500-2,500 feet in elevation, and the terrain remains quite level throughout. The entire area lies in the dry intermountain basin between the Cascade Mountain Range and the Rocky Mountains, where weather conditions range from arid to semi-arid. Annual rainfall is between 10-20 inches, which plays a major factor in the area’s agriculture. Lincoln County is considered the second-largest producer of wheat in the United States, sometimes producing 25 million bushels per year, using a summer-fallow harvest method.
