Arkansas River Irrigated Farm and Hunting is 716 acres and is an extremely productive piece of irrigated ground that offers world class waterfowl, deer and turkey hunting. The farm consists of 295 acres of irrigated ground, 135 acres is under pivot and 160 acres is flood irrigated. The property offers three functioning irrigation wells producing 2,300 gallons per minute combined and has permits for four more for a total of seven if needed. These wells are augmented in SWPDA's rule 14 plan with 600+ acre feet of water for 2018. The property comes with 716 acres of minerals as well.
The hunting along the property is phenomenal with 3/4s of a mile of Arkansas River frontage. The farm fields are a magnet for ducks, Canadian geese and snows. The property has an overflow pond that can be as large as ten acres that makes for excellent early teal and duck season habitat. The corn fields attract world class whitetail deer and the grass on the property is loaded with big mule deer. To go along with the deer hunting is the chance to shoot elk on the property as there are resident elk in the area and frequent the ranch in this C-Tag unit.
The property has a nice 2015, 1,850 sf home with three bedrooms and two baths and the opportunity to finish 800 sf in the upper level to make the perfect hunting camp for large groups. There is an attached two car garage and the home is fully landscaped with a sprinkler system. The homesite also has a 12'x28' out building that was built in 2014 and a 24'x40' barn built in 2017 with a full cement floor. For those who enjoy historical aspects of a property there is an upright silo that adds a lot of character to the homestead.
There is a current farm lease on 270 acres of the farm ground for $85/acre with the leasee paying all cost of augmentation and pumping plus maintenance of the wells and pivot. The grazing on the farm has been retained by the farmer after harvest which has reduced the lease price per acre. This is a year-to-year lease so the property can be all yours next season.
This farm is in perfect condition and offers everything from quality income to some of the best water fowl and deer hunting in Colorado. Call Seth Hayden today to schedule a showing on the property.
