This very productive 208+ acre farm is located along the edge of the city of Riverton in Fremont County Wyoming. Located in the Wind River Valley in central Wyoming and surrounded by the Wind River Mountains, the valley is watered by snow melt from the high mountain peaks which is the source of the scenic Wind River. Ample water for the thousands of acres of farmland in the county have made it into one of Wyoming’s most sought after locations for highly productive, quality farms. Warm, dry summers make this area one of the premium hay production areas in the country. It is nationally recognized for producing some of the nation’s finest quality alfalfa hay. Livestock producers from around the state bring cattle to the area to take advantage of the winter aftermath and hay produced in the area. One of the largest regional livestock markets in the west is located just 4 miles away in Riverton. Riverton ,Wyoming has a population of approximately 11,000 people and has a thriving economy made up of agriculture, energy, and manufacturing enterprises. Highly rated schools, large retail outlets, and a regional airport make this small city a regional center for the surrounding area. Located on route to nearby Yellowstone Park and Jackson Hole, it is a popular destination for hunters, fisherman, and outdoor enthusiasts.
The farm’s east boundary fronts Wyoming Highway 789 just north of Riverton. The city limits are adjacent to, and across the highway from the farm, and livestock supply and implement dealers border it. Growth over the years has brought development to the farm’s boundary.
Future development of the surrounding area is progressing and the farm lies in the path of the limited areas for growth. With infrastructure now within close proximity to.the property, the likelihood of development is certainly a consideration for future use.
Currently producing beans, sugar beets, alfalfa, and pasture under side roll sprinkler and flood irrigation. Water is supplied by the LeClair and Riverton Irrigation Districts. Extensive leveling and concrete ditch allows efficient use of flood irrigation on 113+ acres of the farm, currently in beans and sugar beets. A solar powered, gravity fed sprinkler system provides a cost effective and labor saving use of the of the remaining 95 acres of alfalfa, currently in the 2nd year of production. Approximately 18+ acres of pasture and grass hay above the canal is sub and sprinkler irrigated.
There is power, a well, and small storage building on the property. An access road off the highway runs the length of the North border, as well as an additional highway access road in the center of the property. The Riverton Irrigation System canal bisects the farm and provides water for approximately 95 acres below the canal. The water for the remaining acreage is sourced about ¼ mile above the farm off the LeClair Irrigation canal. It is delivered through buried pipe and provides pressure to run the solar powered wheel lines on the property.
Donovan Road just south of the farm, provides access to two additional subdivision lots of approximately 3.86+ and 3.87+ acres on the southwest corner of the property. With privacy, good views and access, these lots would provide an excellent site for a home and improvements. Power is near and Lot 3 has a well. These lots are priced separately and are not included in the 208+ acre farm.
This is a highly productive, high quality farm in a prime location, in one of the state’s rapidly growing regions. Wyoming is known for its tax and business friendly environment.
