Property Description

Atwood Farm and River Bottom:

This 465+/- acre farm has it all. The property includes pivot Irrigation ground, flood Irrigation ground, pasture ground, nearly 1 mile of South Platte River Frontage, and to top it off amazing surface water rights. The water rights have been rated at 800 Acre Feet Consumptive use. The farm has been in the same family since 1939. This is a rare offering for this region, located between Merino and Atwood, Colorado. The farm is set up as a turnkey farming operation or investment property. This is a great offering for a local farm looking to add acreage, or an investor looking for an investment farm with a great recreational opportunity, and/or a startup hemp farm. There are lots of options with the property.

Land Break Down:

There are 140+/- acres under a 7 Tower 1320' Stainless Steel Zimmatic center pivot. Nearly 160+/- acres of flood irrigated ground located next to the river offering great moist soils. The remaining 140+/- acres are located along the South Platte River, which offers great pasture ground and grasses. The crop ground is currently being leased along with the pasture ground; future lease options could be discussed.

Recreation:

With nearly one mile of South Platte River frontage, this farm has endless opportunities for hunting. The farm sits in unit 96 and qualifies for two landowner buck deer tags. This stretch of the river produces trophy quality deer every year. The Whitetail deer hunting is some of the best in the state. Having food, cover, and water is essential to growing and holding trophy deer. This property has all three. Turkey hunting on the property is world class with plenty of roost trees along the river. The waterfowl hunting around Merino, Colorado is well sought after because of its great migration and holding of ducks and geese along the river. Birds routinely feed in the surrounding agriculture fields located up and down the river. The farm is located between two major reservoirs, North Sterling and Prewitt Reservoirs, which migrating ducks and geese take refuge on during their journey South.
