The information herein, although deemed reliable, is not guaranteed.

Purchased in 1950 by its current owner, this property and its natural resources have withstood the test of time. Located in its own pocket along Sand Creek--beautiful, natural and undisturbed...yet less than five miles from pavement. The photos speak for themselves!

A modest headquarters rests in the basin at the heart of the ranch--still occupied during the summer months by its owners.

The barns and cattle working facilities have seen many updates and improvements and are ready for livestock.

Of the 2680 deeded, 137 acres are crop. There is an additional 1120 acres of adjoining lease available, as well as 520 acres of Forest Service land (turn in permit).
Also, a future possibility of leasing additonal 640 acres of State land.

If all acreage mentioned is included in the ranching unit, it had handled up to 225 animal units, in the past, pending average weather conditions.

At this time, the Seller has leased out the ranch for the 2009 season grazing and growing season, but the lease will expire at the end of this year.

The springs on the property make it a prime pipeline project possibility, however, up to this point, the rancher has managed to sustain his operation by depending on the wells and on the creek that meanders throughout the entire ranch. Due to dry conditions in the summer of 2008, water was hauled to cattle in the Forest Service pastures.

This ranch is settled in the "core" of prime cattle country and, based on supply and demand, probably the most highly desirable recreational area in the upper mid-west!

Gravel and scoria rights transfer with the sale--and in earlier years, scoria was sold off the property.

This ranch offers so much more than an agricultural investment. So many unique characteristics that create multi-dimensional opportunities.

The Pitchfork Ranch is a real, true cattle ranch, with live creek crossings, good grass and ash & cedar draws for livestock protection. But, it is also an investment that will appreciate because of the natural resources it has to offer that aren't available on every piece of property.

And finally, it's a "retreat", where you can enjoy the beauty of nature, explore, hunt, and take pride in preserving a lifestyle that can be carried on for the next generation.

This ranch is special...don't miss out on the opportunity to call it "home"!
