This beautiful and historic Colorado Ranch is a perfect blend of agricultural and recreational amenities conveniently located 8 miles east of Gunnison, Colorado. It features exceptional ranch headquarters and two natural Rocky Mountain trout streams that originate from the head waters of the Great Continental Divide. For the first time in their 140 year ranching history, these two neighboring ranches may be purchased in combination to form a truly outstanding cattle ranch.
Together, they have over 520+ deeded acres of lush irrigated meadow and pasture land that produce 800 to 900 tons of native grass hay annually, with a "bumper" crop of around 1000 tons occasionally. Additionally, there are 384+ acres of deeded acreage for dry grazing and calving grounds along with both ranch headquarters. The abundant water rights with excellent use histories and over 4 miles of Tomichi Creek and Cochetopa Creek meandering through the ranch nurture the groomed hay meadows and pastures. Both of these natural watersheds provide superb habitat for livestock as well as fish, waterfowl, and wildlife.
Most of the ranch is in GMU 551 which offers excellent Mule Deer, Elk, and Antelope hunting opportunities. The ranch borders BLM for several miles affording an owner easy access to public lands in 3 different directions. World class skiing at Mount Crested Butte and Monarch Ski resorts are 45 minutes and 30 minutes away and Colorado's largest reservoir, Blue Mesa, is just 30 minutes away as well.
