The Flying Y Ranch represents a near-perfect 4,050 deeded acre Wyoming ranch. It lies in a contiguous block of high-quality deeded land with approximately eight miles of the Laramie River passing through. The river meanders through the heart of the ranch creating a rich, fertile alluvial bottom, dense with healthy cottonwoods, willows, and thick stands of grasses. The terrain is gradual and consists mostly of irrigated and sub-irrigated pastures with the river bottom anchoring the ranch. There are 2,000 acres under flood irrigation and 830 acres of sub-irrigated pasture lands. These provide a more than adequate feed base for a cattle operation or a large-scale hay operation.
There are two separate sets of improvements on each side of Brubaker Lane, both along the river. The west set of improvements serves as the headquarters and includes a beautiful three-bedroom owners residence as well as a managers house, shops, barns, and everything needed to operate the ranch. The improvements on the east side of Brubaker Lane serve primarily as a cattle handling facility. There is a nice calving barn with 25 calving pens, an additional barn with a functional apartment on the second level, multiple loafing barns, and a large corral setup.
With over eight miles of river corridor and over half of the ranch under irrigation, the Flying Y comfortably sustains both livestock and wildlife. Hunting for elk, deer, and antelope is outstanding, and there is excellent fishing for brown and rainbow trout. In summary, the Flying Y Ranch is a completely private, well-balanced, river bottom ranch with extensive recreational amenities.
