LOCATION: The Farm is located 6.5 miles south of Worland, WY (population 5,450) on the east side of Highway 20. Property fronts the Highway and has legal access. Six Farm has K-12 bus service to the gate.
DESCRIPTION: The Farm lies along a bend on the west side of the Big Horn River adding an aesthetic feature to this otherwise productive farm. Current owners run a small herd of cattle and grow hay. The house sits on a bench overlooking the river. This farm is a unique combination of production and beauty in a private setting.
IMPROVEMENTS: Improvements include a “city-quality” home with a panoramic view of the river, shop, barn, feedlot and various smaller support buildings. The buildings are all well-kept and proportionate to the size and quality of the Farm.
HOME:3,167 sq. ft. Bi level. There are 3 bedrooms and two full baths. Bright country kitchen, sun room facing the river and partial in-floor heat. The house is connected to a community water system maintained by the Washakie County Rural Water District and natural gas line. The home utilizes electricity, in large part, supplied by their own solar power supply*. The yard features mature trees, lawn, and flower beds. There is a two-car, log -sided detached garage with open bays.
· Solar panels were installed in 2019 and are metered through the local electric company’s meter. These reduce monthly electricity costs to around $40/month.
Shop: 4,000 sq. ft., metal sided shop. Concrete floor, gas heat, partially insulated. Features a large walk in cooler, storage areas, and four overhead doors, two of which are electric.
Barn: 1,300 sq,ft log structure with tack room. Working corrals, small feedlot with heated water, and separate well.
Farm Production: Soil on the farm is primarily a clay loam, as you would expect to find in a major river valley. The topography is generally flat and consists of a bench that contains 80% of the farm with the remaining bottomland grass pasture.
The current owners run a small herd of beef cows and produce alfalfa and grass hay. The ground is irrigated with gated pipe and K Line sprinklers, powered by a 10-hp. pump. The ground is highly productive and could grow row crops, hay or small grains. There are 5 pastures cross-fenced on the property. The owners currently run 40 head of mature cows year-long and sell some hay depending on the year.
Water: The Farm has water rights out of the Bluff Canal at an annual cost of $17/irrigated acre. Water rights are excellent and reliable. More info can be obtained by calling The Bluff Canal Secretary, Sandy Richardson at (307) 431-2261.
Domestic water comes from a county-wide rural water system at a base cost of $67/month. Livestock water consists of three year-round piped springs and a livestock well in the corrals.
Recreation: The Big Horn River offers excellent duck and geese habitat. The farm lies in a big bend and has nearly a mile (.9) of frontage which attracts large flocks of water fowl during the colder months. There are also pheasants on the farm as well as deer and other wildlife.
Fishing is primarily warm-water species with trout migrating downstream during the early spring and late fall.
Comments: This is a unique, productive farm with superb frontage on the Big Horn River.
The setting is private, yet ten minutes from town. One of the nicer farms I’ve ever sold.
