This Western Colorado offering consists of two separate properties that are currently being used as a successful family cow-calf operation. They can be purchased together or separately and are approximately 30 minutes apart. Land The picturesque ranch has good water rights for its 355 irrigated acres and comes with summer grazing permits for 420 head on BLM and National Forest land. Even as a full-time cattle ranch, the owners have taken numerous quality mule deer bucks, bull elk, black bears, and wild turkeys on the property. With a reduction in cattle numbers the ranch could be set up as an excellent hunting ranch. You could hold many more elk and deer and the spring turkey hunting would be exceptional. Bull tags are available over the counter for every season except the first rifle season and buck tags are a draw statewide, but the ranch gets landowner deer vouchers giving you at least one buck tag per year. There is even a bald eagle nest and several black bear dens on the property where the owners watch the cubs emerge and grow in the spring. The upper ranch—the 1,041-acre George Creek parcel—located approximately 8 miles from Cedaredge, Colorado, sits on the picturesque Southern end of the Grand Mesa, the world’s largest flat-topped mountain, and only 50 minutes from the Powderhorn Ski Resort. This property is 45 minutes from the Montrose Regional Airport which provides easy access to multiple destinations daily. The area offers hundreds of fishing lakes in the summer and incredible snowmobiling in the winter. This property features a very nice 2,618 sq. ft. ranch-style home with incredible views. It was built in 2003 with 3 bedrooms and 2-1/4 baths and a walkout basement. It is unusual for a place with true end-of-the-road privacy to have fiber optic high-speed internet and domestic water, but this home has both. The Dirty George Creek runs through the Southern end of it and draws elk to the 190 acres of irrigated pasture lands as they travel from their bedding area in the juniper and pinion pines. In addition to the home, there are corrals, an arena, a large barn and several ponds to provide for your livestock and horses. With walking access to the national forest grazing permits, this ranch is an excellent staging area to compliment the lower winter pasture. The lower ranch—the 737-acre Peach Valley parcel—boasts 165 irrigated acres with excellent water rights consisting of 165 shares of Uncompaghre Valley water. The irrigated ground consists of both pasture and hay production. The property’s infrastructure includes working pens, corrals, a small feed lot, and an irrigation pivot. Production averages 4 tons per acre of alfalfa and 3 tons per acre of grass based on three cuttings per year. This parcel complements the upper ranch as a cattle operation but in today’s market it could be a developer’s dream with domestic water running through the center of the property next to the county road and BLM on three sides allowing for unlimited recreational opportunities. It could be divided into parcels where every owner could build on a high point, offering incredible views while providing a piece of irrigated ground for horses and a place to hunt some of the many quail found on the property. Whether purchased together or separately, the ranch is suited for life on the land.
