The 1,200-acre Huerfano Ranch, located southeast of Pueblo, Colorado has is a multiple-resource property with long-term income potential. The property straddles both sides of the Huerfano River, which provides valuable irrigation water to 400 acres of the property. In addition to the irrigated land, the ranch has a huge proven reserve of high-quality gravel, estimated to be at least 20 million tons. Existing gravel pits near Pueblo are close to being depleted. *** WATER RESOURCES The ranch has 400 arable acres, 6 wells, a center pivot sprinkler irrigating 90 acres, and 830 shares of 4,000 shares in the Wilton Ditch. Other water users have made very serious offers to buy the ranchs ditch shares. The ranch is also able to access many acre feet of water from nearby Pueblo Reservoir. *** IMPROVEMENTS An old 3-bedroom, 1-bath farmhouse, built in the late 1800s, is still functional as a ranch managers house. A huge hay barn80 x 160 x 42 tallprovides space to park machinery and store hay. A new and modern 40 x 60 shop building provides a good workspace. *** WILDLIFE The Huerfano Ranch has an incredible diversity of wildlife. A year-round, spring-fed slough on the east side of the river attracts large flocks of migrating ducks and geese during the fall and winter months. Both whitetail deer and mule deer live on the property year-round, with numerous trophy bucks of both species harvested on the premises over the years. Additionally, elk and pronghorn antelope are known to migrate through, with decent chances to harvest both species on the ranch. Upland bird species include quail and turkey in good numbers. *** GRAVEL RESERVES The Huerfano Ranch has incredible gravel reserves, with proven reserves of over 20,000,000 tons of high-quality gravel only 20 or so miles from Pueblo. There are extensive engineering studies proving the reserves. *** HISTORY Finally, the ranch has a fascinating history, with archaeological sites dating back thousands of years, as Native American tribes wintered on the property. The Taos Trail diverges from the Santa Fe Trail and meanders through the property. An old Pony Express station from the 1850's was converted into a cavalry station, and a gravesite from a cavalry colonel and his family occupies a bluff above the river.
