Location: Ovando, Mont.
Price: $9,500,000
The Skinny: Bordering state lands in Montana's Blackfoot Valley, the Knob & Kettle Ranch belongs to Pat and Nina Brock, former owners of the 108-year-old Brock Candy Company. Back in the 1980s, Brock was the first candy company to produce "gummy" candy in the U.S., including gummy bears and gummy worms, today classic staples of the candy industry. The family poured some of their considerable fortune into this ranch, a 1,185-acre spread with nearly a mile of river frontage, which is now graced with a series of log structures. The interiors have a real "western" bent, including raw wood beams, leather furniture, and patterned throws, but are still much more modest that some of the monstrous log mansions to be found in Montana. The ranch that gummy bears built is listed for $9.5M.
