Ranch with Strong Water Rights & Irrigated Acreage

Water rights can determine the productivity and usage of a mountain ranch. The Holmes Mesa mountain ranch has an impressive array of water assets available to the property. Irrigating almost 20 acres of hay ground, water rights are diverted out of Cottonwood Creek which flows through the property. This allows for typically 2 good cuttings of hay per year, and lush pasture for horses, cattle, and other livestock. The domestic water is fed by a 80-foot, high production water well. The well produces 25 gallons per minute, an incredible amount of water which is utilized for the domestic water, greenhouse, and other needs. A spring has been developed up the mountain on the property, and piped to the pond & hydrants around the property.

Mountain Hunting Ranch, Colorado Mule Deer, Elk, Bear & More

Mountain hunting land coupled with productive hay fields naturally draws game to the Holmes Mesa Ranch. The owners of the ranch have successfully harvested countless large bull elk, mule deer bucks, healthy bears, and other wildlife on the property. The mountain acreage is easily accessible by the atv road and provides for a haven for the wildlife to avoid the public land hunters to the South. Quiet access leads to successful hunts & easy recoveries on the ranch.
