South Creek Ranch nestles against a backdrop of the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains from a private access road. Just west of the California/ Nevada border, it is only 17 miles from downtown Reno, NV. The farmstead site was historically the headquarters for a larger ranching operation and includes a full set of working corrals, complete with a loading chute and squeeze chute. Perimeter-fenced and cross-fenced, the current owner runs approximately 60+ pairs with replacement heifers and bulls. A large irrigation reservoir collecting water from South Creek is located along the southwest boundary. A second smaller in-stream reservoir collects water from Purdy Creek, which traverses the western portion of the ranch in a northerly direction.  The ranch is developed primarily to 200 acres of irrigated meadow hay and 71 acres of irrigated pasture with a 17-acre farmstead and 48.8 acres of native grazing land. Native meadow hay production runs at 300+/- tons annually, with plenty for winter feed. Excess hay is sold by the bale.

The headquarters consist of a main Mid-Century Modern residence, a caretaker or guest house, a bunkhouse and an incredible refurbished historical Stone House, a huge barn, a newer hay barn, and multiple outbuildings.
