B Bar Ranch near Emigrant, Montana is nestled among the 10,000-foot peaks of the Gallatin Range in the Tom Miner Basin, which sweeps from Yellowstone National Park’s northern boundary to intersect with the fabled Paradise Valley. The ranch’s nine thousand acres of open meadows, forested hillsides, riparian areas and mountainous wildlands provide excellent habitat for the region’s renowned wildlife species, including grizzly and black bears, elk and moose, wolves and coyotes, and countless varieties of birdlife. The ranch is a place of spectacular beauty, and committed to protecting its unique and extraordinary landscape.
A working ranch since 1906, the B Bar today provides summer range for the ranch's herd of Ancient White Park Cattle, irrigates two large pastures, and puts up hay each year (once providing superior hay for Kentucky’s race horses). We feature organic grass-finished beef from our cattle for our guests and for sale along with maintaining an intensively-developed landscape at ranch headquarters.
Historically a working ranch, hunting lodge, and retreat, today B Bar Ranch welcomes a wide range of guests including events for selected non-profit groups, workshops and retreats, weddings, and reunions, as well as board, staff, and patron meetings. The guest facilities accommodate up to 40 guests and include a rambling lodge with a dining room, large living room, and four suites plus an additional six cabins overlooking a pond with spectacular views to mountains and the valley beyond.
From time to time every employee may be asked to perform jobs other than the job for which s/he was hired. This may happen to fill in for illness, or during particularly busy or slow times.

Our Ideal Candidate
The best applicants are hard working, self- motivated, flexible, and team oriented. Ecology and stewardship are important parts of ranch philosophy and operation. Employees who best fit these jobs work with conservation in mind. Whether working in the garden, with livestock, or in the kitchen and lodge, the staff employs environmentally sound methods to accomplish each task. Candidates recognize that they are coming here foremost to work, and then for their own personal enjoyment. The hard work expected from our employees will be rewarded with living in a beautiful, historic location and spending free time in the surroundings.
Room and Board
We provide quality housing for our seasonal employees. The bunkhouse is at ranch headquarters. It is fully furnished, has shared bedrooms and bathrooms, a large living area, a full kitchen/dining area and laundry facilities. Employees are responsible for purchasing and preparing their own food. We offer a competitive salary and provide the opportunity to work and play in one of the most spectacular settings in the Northern Rockies.
Getting Here and Getting Around
Because of our relatively remote location, we encourage employees to have their own vehicles, but it is not necessary.
Outdoor recreational opportunities on the ranch and the surrounding wildlands of Greater Yellowstone include hiking, fly fishing in the world class Yellowstone River (at the turnoff to the ranch), and exploring Yellowstone National Park just 40 minutes away. If you enjoy the outdoors, the mountains, and the likelihood of seeing everything from grizzly bears to wolves to moose to elk herds that number in the hundreds all from your front door and backyard, B Bar should be on the top of your list when deciding where to work this summer.
