Property Details for 3870 State Rd 522, Costilla, NM 87524

Ute Mountain Farms is on the market for the first in almost 70 years if not more. This legacy ranch, that was once a huge potato farm, has been developed into a successful holistic management cattle operation. The 6 sections (3920 acres) have been defined into separately fenced and crossed fenced quarter sections (160 acres each) for easy cattle rotation and crop preservation. 4 drinkers are situated to help facilitate easy rotation with minimal work. 60 acre feet of water rights from 2 wells supply the hearty and drought resistant Crested Wheat Grass that is on a flood irrigation set up and perfect for fattening up the calves with 600 pounds of weight gain a season. The owner currently runs 180 head rotating them every three days to the next pasture. There are three homes on the property. The main house that is nicely done and has beautiful laminate floors, updated bathroom and master bedroom, new windows, a pellet stove for comfortable heat supplement. The second home is a 2 bedroom one bath with a mud room and eat in kitchen. Perfect as a guest house, extended family or a bunk house for elk hunters. The second guest house is also a 2 bedroom 1 bath and has the same floor plan and the first guest house. The property comes with 43 elk tags so the extra homes could be used to house hunters. The tags are unit wide, 17 Bull tags, 9 either sex (bow) and 17 cow tags all for unit 53. There is a large shop for the toys and lots of space for working. Out by the corrals is a 12 room bunk house and 2 root cellars. One of the root cellars would make an epic man cave! Lots of details and much to see with this well utilized property and all it has to offer!
