The 180+ acre Horizon Farm is located in Hot Springs County, 7 miles north of Thermopolis Wyoming. This productive unit is part of a larger operation and is currently producing alfalfa, grass and pasture under sprinkler irrigation provided by the Lucerne Valley Water District.The farm is divided by a gently sloping ridge and the fields are irrigated with 3 pivots supplied by the upper Lucerne canal just west of the property. New and very well laid out pipe corrals and working facility with load out for trucks make handling cattle enjoyable. There are no other improvements on the farm but power and water is accessible. It is being offered in combination with the adjoining home and farm with a full set of additional improvements, the Cheyenne Creek Farm.
Situated at 4300 feet elevation less than a mile from the Bighorn River, the combination of reliable water and mild weather for growing hay, makes this farm a key wintering destination for livestock. The surrounding valley has a limited number of very productive farms producing hay, corn, beets, beans, and small grains. The nearby Bighorn river has a regulated flow from Boysen Reservoir at the mouth of the Wind River Canyon. The water is stored for irrigation and power and is utilized by the Lucerne Irrigation District to supply the farms with reliable water.
Thermopolis lays at the southern end of the Bighorn Basin and is buffered by the Bighorn, Bridger, and Owl Creek mountains. The population of 4000 boasts a airport, hospital, K-12 schools and the world’s largest mineral hot springs. A popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts, it has world class hunting and fishing and is near Yellowstone Park.
