LandTrust is a for-profit conservation company focused on enhancing the land and wildlife management on rural private lands. We do this by connecting sportsmen, industry partners, government programs, and conservation experts to create a community of support for rural landowners. You can learn more about our partner programs on our conservation page.
Testimonial Tuesday! LandTrust is built around trust; the high quality relationships amongst our landowners and sportsmen are what make the business work. We value those relationships and the experiences that our landowners and sportsmen share. We would like to share some of those stories with you, so you can get a look into what our partnerships look like. This week, we have a landowner testimony from Jonathan Birnbaum. Jonathan signed up as a LandTrust landowner almost a year ago and has seen a lot of action on his two listings: The Birnbaum Farm and the Black Horse Canyon Ranch (BHCR) are both located in eastern Washington.
Hello Landowners and Sportsmen, we’ve had a busy last few weeks! The LandTrust team is working hard to build more opportunities for Landowners and Sportsmen to work together for the upcoming hunting season and we have some exciting new listings in Nebraska to share with you.
New LandTrust Listings in Nebraska
The Abbott Ranch is located in the heart of Sandhills, Nebraska and includes over 30,000 acres of lush, green grass on rolling terrain. This sixth generation working cattle ranch also offers access to over 30 miles of spring-fed, open-water tributaries of natural rivers, creeks and man-made ditches, including an 11 mile stretch along the Snake River. Lodging on the ranch consists of an old, ranch-style bunk house that has been well maintained. The bunk house has nine beds plus a couch, plenty of chairs, a microwave, TV and full bathroom. The Abbott’s welcome waterfowl sportsmen for a great experience on their pristine land. Check out the Abbott Ranch listing here!
“In 1860, my great-great grandparents homesteaded just a mile up the road here,” explains JD Hamm, fifth-generation owner and operator of the Montana Cow Company.
Today on the blog, we bring to you a father-daughter duo that have been LandTrust landowners for over a year. Katelyn Kohlbeck’s family moved to Bozeman, MT in 1919 and has been raising registered Herefords since 1935. However, Katelyn was honest about what many ranching families know when she said “You can’t just live off of cows.... We needed to find another way to make a little bit of income in between the checks that you get from cattle sale to cattle sale.”

Welcome to the LandTrust blog! We are excited to introduce this page to you to help share our LandTrust stories with landowners, sportsmen, industry partners, government programs and conservation experts. If you are new to LandTrust, we welcome you to visit our About Us page to learn more about who we are and what we stand for.
Recently, there has been a lot of conservation talk in the news. Conservation is our business, which is why we are looking forward to diving deeper into this topic with you. We plan to share resources and open the door to more conversation regarding the effect of certain policies and how that might shape the future for private landowners. We hope to support these landowners through our LandTrust marketplace by connecting them with respectful sportsmen. By allowing our sportsmen to book a hunt on private property, our landowners grant them access while generating more income for their operations.
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy learning more about LandTrust by listening to and reading featured podcasts and articles.
