Beautiful & hidden in Southeastern Utah is this 1360+/- acre farm and ranch. Creeks run through the wildlife filled canyons that surround three sides of the 900+/- acres of organic fields. Spring-fed ponds provide water & habitat for Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, Mountain Lion, Waterfowl, and many other birds and small game. Over-the-counter Any-Bull Elk Tags are available for this hard-to-find hunting property. The ponds provide great habitat for waterfowl and other birds and are deep enough for fish to survive. An old homestead sits on the Northeast corner of the ranch, with barbed-wire fencing on several sides of the property. Canyon rims provide views of the manicured fields and deep canyons, and you can get great views of the distant mountains. The wide-open skies enhance this magnificent landscape.
