The Castle Valley Ranches (CVR) offering represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to purchase a fully 'turn-key' enterprise, which not only 'has it all', but has the very best of 'all of it'! At nearly 10,000 deeded acres, plus an additional 325,000 acres of public grazing permits that provide over 7,000 AUMs, the CVR is an absolute giant. The 10,000 acres of private lands are strategically located along waterways and adjoining National Forest and BLM lands, and comprise 1,600+ acres of sprinkler irrigated farmland, 1,000+ acres of riparian and river bottom lands, with the balance of the land varying between high desert to high mountain landscapes. The CVR has three fully appointed and separate headquarters, one for the hunting and recreational enterprises (Castle Valley Outdoors), one for the farming and livestock enterprises (Castle Valley Main Ranch), and one for the cattle ranching enterprise (Baker Ranch). The building improvements alone on CVR total over 40,000 SF, and include an extraordinary 8,000 SF hunting and guest lodge, numerous homes, cabins, bunkhouses, and the full complement of both recreational and agricultural support buildings. The lifeblood of this massive operating is the incredible water resource and rights it controls, with over 15 miles of bisecting streams, three large fishing ponds, and several irrigation reservoirs. Cattle and wildlife never have far to travel for a needed drink of water, and most of the farmland is pivot irrigated and supplied by buried and pressurized mainlines. For hunters, the CVR is both a registered CWMU (Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit) for mule deer and antelope, and is also an Orvis-Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge, the only one in the state. The 'turn-key' offering includes all the furnishings and equipment for the Castle Valley Outdoors enterprise, as well as the owner's current inventory of farming equipment and machinery. The owner's existing herd of over 600 cows can be purchased separately.
