The Land 

Previously going back many generations, the irrigated farm headquarters and dry ranch land blends the old with the new.  Totaling +/- 268 acres, KMS Farms features 7 pastures fenced and cross fenced, +/-22 acres of irrigated pastures & paddocks with 210+ acres left timbered and extending approximately 1 mile north.  The entire property is conservation easement protected (enrolled).  Bordering +/-2000 acres of landlocked BLM, the property is crisscrossed with riding and ATV trails that extend into hundreds of acres of additional BLM acres for the owners enjoyment.  For the sportsman or wildlife watcher, KMS Farms holds a resident herd of mule deer and is in a major elk/mule deer migration route.  The apple orchard pasture is almost always home to several big bucks and the farm meets the requirements for Landowner Preference Mule Deer Tag annually. Located in Big Game Unit 75, elk tags are over-the-counter for a 30-day archery season and 2 rifle seasons. Several locations exist for game management food plots should improving the wildlife habitat be of interest. 

The Water 

The ranch features 3 wells (main home, barn/stables and caretaker/guest home).  The county is just completing municipal water installation, right past the ranch entrance, and that hookup will be available in the near future.

There are water rights with +/- 22 acres of irrigated pasture and apple orchards. 

The Home

The center focus on the ranch is the owners masterpiece home, custom designed for total privacy and southern exposure, cozily tucked back into the rim of the foothills overlooking the pastures, stables and paddocks with views well beyond the New Mexico state line.  With too many features to list, the pictures and attached write up will hardly do it justice. This home is incomparable. 


With 5 stalls, wash racks, tack room, bath and kitchen, KMS Stables is ideally set up for housing and currently boarding horses.  Easy vehicle access allows great service by both veterinarians and farriers.

Indoor and Outdoor Riding Arenas

16000 sq. ft. indoor riding arena is serviced by large doors on the sides and the ends (200’ x 80’), and an outdoor riding and dressage area.

- The 3rd tier beautifully steps up to the owners home allowing for maximum privacy and security.
