Soil conservation practices have been implemented over the course of many years. The property is irrigated by gated pipe, with approximately 54 shares of water from the pristine Highline Canal, served by Uncompahgre Valley Water Users. The fields stay irrigated, even in drought conditions, clear into late fall. The 5,500+ altitude is ideal for sweet corn, field corn, pinto beans, onions, potatoes, barley, wheat, oats, sunflowers, and alfalfa and have all been profitably grown on this farmland. Livestock have also flourished here. This farm parcel is a Hemp producers DREAM. Neighboring farms have converted to Hemp production with excellent crop results, and this farm has as good or better soils than others nearby. This peaceful property includes a hilltop of approximately 40 acres and a water tap with beautiful views over 50 miles of the local mountain ranges with potential building sites for one or more homes and a wetlands area where wildlife love to sequester. Views include: San Juan and West Elk Mountain Range, Black Canyon, Grand Mesa and the Uncompahgre Plateau. Nestled beneath the Uncompahgre Plateau, BLM land is also nearby, making this land a frequent host and hideaway for Mule Deer, Elk, Bear and Pheasant. Trophy bucks have also been hunted in nearby parcels. Farm can be purchased separately (this and another approx. 80 acre "Roatcap" farmland parcel also for sale) or they can be bought together. Come and see this rich farmland and dream about the endless possibilities!!
