This area known as the Lucerne Valley is a productive agriculture zone that is under the Lucerne and Owl Creek Irrigation District with water sourced from the Bighorn River. Limited available land and growing subdivisions have made farms of this nature difficult to obtain.
There are approximately 110 shares of water under the Lucerne Irrigation District and water is supplied through a headgate on the canal system that goes through the farm. Water is delivered through an open ditch and gated pipe.
Assessments for the irrigation district are through the Lucerne District and the Owl Creek District annually.
