Arkansas River Farms
Las Animas, Colorado
Arkansas River Farms An offering of 2,542 acres of dry land farm ground in Bent County Colorado. The offering consists of 5 separate farm parcels near John Martin Reservoir and the Arkansas River each with level productive dry land farm ground. Most of the farm ground habe been planted to sorghum and some of the fields will be planted back to grass in the fall. There are pockets of trees on each parcel providing field barriers and wildlife habitat. There are an abundance of deer and turkey on each of these properties. Additionally, these parcels each have a source of running water via irrigation ditches or creeks. Though not irrigated, these water sources coupled with great wildlife habitat in a great wildlife area provide for excellent hunting. There are Whitetail, Mule Deer, turkey, upland birds, waterfowl, coyote, and fox. With some additional management for wildlife, these farms would be amazing hunting properties. This general area is an outdoorsman's dream with John Martin Reservoir, Karney Ranch State Wildlife Area and the Arkansas River. The area is also steeped in history with the old Santa Fe Trail just south of these farms, Bent's New Fort ruins, old Fort Lyons. Call a Hayden Outdoors Broker to schedule your private tour.
