1,920 +/- acre potato farm and ranch for sale located in the San Luis Valley North of Alamosa, Colorado.
There are 12 full pivots covering 12 quarter sections, and flood irrigation to compliment the water resources. Each quarter section includes a primary and backup well, surface reservoirs for re-charge and canal water.
All pivots, wells and equipment are well maintained. The pivots are made by Lockwood and Valley with electric submersible pumps. Wells are approximately 70 feet deep, and there are 3 reservoirs fed by artesians that can recharge the pivots. All the wells combined can easily total over 20,000 +/- gpm. The ranch is in Irrigation Sub District #1 in the San Luis Valley.
Canal Water: The San Luis Valley Irrigation District (Farmers Union Canal) provides additional water supply per pro rata share of the water available each year. Five subject fields would have 791 acres right in the district, translating to .76 acre feet per gross acre (600 acre feet of water).
Multiple artesian stock wells and tanks distributed across the property provide an incredible water supply for a large livestock operation.
Property has two well-maintained ranch houses that can be used as owner housing and foremen headquarters. There are 17 grain bins (3K to 8K bushel range), equipment buildings, fuel tanks, and equipment barns.
