Lone Cone Ranchon Wright’s Mesa

The sight feels strikingly familiar: a classic combination of Colorado topography where a thick blanket of forest climbs the slopes of a majestic mountain framed by an expansive cloud-dotted skyline. While many attempt to replicate this stunning profile in architecture, the design at Lone Cone Ranch is especially impressive.

Situated on 496 acres, the beautiful main residence features a custom home that perfectly emulates the strength and beauty of its neighboring landscape. This lovely stone and log home pays homage to the simple elegance of the surrounding nature and mimics both the mountain and sky with an impressive wall of windows that ascend towards the vaulted ceiling. This is a perfect frame for the magnificent views of Lone Cone

Investing in Rural Real Estate – No Experience Required Tips and Advice from Bill and Kim Boyce with Fay Ranches

Owning a ranch—the idea sounds inviting, garnering visions of a mountainside retreat in Colorado, fishing blue ribbon waters in Wyoming, waking up to oceanfront views in Oregon or running a cattle-breeding operation in Montana. Yes, cattle breeding. Beyond simple beauty, owning a large or small-acreage property can offer excellent income potential that turns a recreational retreat into a productive business investment. Many homebuyers shy from purchasing a property with agricultural or livestock potential due to lack of experience, but with the right information and knowing the options available, owning a previously established or developing a new cattle-breeding ranch, productive salmon fishery, hay/corn farm or even a winery is well within reach. “Your goals drive the entire equation: from what ranch to purchase right through to how it will be operated,” said Bill & Kim Boyce, licensed sales agents with Fay Ranches. Based in Lewistown, Montana, they have an extensive history in owning, buying, selling and managing rural real estate. “Everyone has a different motivation for buying property, whether it is recreation or investment oriented or most often a combination of several different factors. This all has to be taken into consideration when making the initial decisions about how to move forward.”

Options of Ownership: Ranch Manager or Lease Agreement? Owning a production-oriented property comes with a question: does the owner want to be responsible for the daily operations or do they want to place those responsibilities in the hands of a leaseholder? For those with no or very limited experience in property management or for a new property without a significant income-producing history, choosing to work with a leaseholder is perhaps the best choice. “Entering a lease situation will allow the owner to place the responsibility of ranch operations in the hands of a leaseholder and still generate income,” explained Boyce. “There are several different lease structures that may be considered with varying levels of involvement on

Volume 49 Farm&Ranch West

the landowner’s part, such as crop share, net share or a fixed cash rent. “In a crop share lease, the landowner receives a certain share (%) of the crop and usually will also share some of the expenses with the leaseholder. In a net share situation, the landowner receives a smaller share of the revenue but the lessee pays for all of the expenses. The route of least involvement would be a fixed cash rent lease where the landowner receives a set amount of rent no matter what the income generated from the livestock/crop.” If, however, the existing farm/ranch operation has proven to be productive and an experienced ranch manager is in place, a landowner with even minimal experience can venture to become more included in the day-to-day financial and operational decisions. “This would mean working closely with a ranch manager who would be interested in staying on board; this can get tricky depending on who/what processes have been in place and whether or not they meet the criteria of the new owner, especially if the plan is to take the ranch in a different direction. Change can be a difficult thing for someone who has lived on the ranch and has a

Best Choices for an Absentee/Inexperienced Owner For an owner who plans on having little to no on-hand experience with the property, the size and scope of the development is less important than finding a competent and trustworthy lessee. On the other hand, for an owner who desires to be more involved, each situation is unique. “It’s about understanding your operation and deciding how many ‘moving parts’ you want to handle,” explained Boyce. “For example, an intense farming operation that includes major irrigation and a cow/calf operation is a going to be year-round responsibility with daily decisionmaking.

For example, do you want someone with a traditional set of farming/ranching tools who can work on equipment or possibly be an AI tech, or are you looking for someone who has more experience with wildlife/habitat management and can work with bird dogs and put in food plots?” noted Boyce. “Many times, no one is perfect, but at the end of the day there has to be something that this person is bringing to the table that really excites you. You want somebody that has their own thought process and can think on their feet, but who still understands your goals for your ranch—it’s important they’re open to your ideas and opinions.

especially west of the Continental Divide, is heavily forested with more than two dozen species of trees. The eastern half of the state has a distinct character of its own and is comprised of lakes, rolling hills, badlands, and prairies. The prairies provide for a thriving livestock industry and bird hunting habitats. The diversity of nature is found in these productive areas—sage, willows, cedars, berries, and the ubiquitous hardy cold season grasses. These regions provide the backdrop and legacy of the Western traditions associated with the great trail drives that brought cattle and cowboys from Texas to Montana after the Civil War.

The Perkins Ranch is one of the premier riparian properties in the Southwest. The approximately 3,400Âą feet of Verde River bisecting the headquarters has beautiful large stands of cottonwood and willow trees. In addition to the 214.39 deeded acres, the substantial historic water rights (over 20,000 acre feet) truly make this a one-of-a-kind property. The deeded land adjoins Prescott National Forest land to the north, west and south. Included in the sale are the historic Perkinsville depot and recently renovated 1926 ranch house. These buildings at Perkinsville played the role of Gold City in the 1964 film How the West Was Won. Also, there are Indian ruins on the deeded land showing that history goes back even further than the Perkins ownership. Complementing the deeded land, the sale also includes a grazing allotment on the Prescott National Forest for 266 animal units for seven months (variable numbers not to exceed 3,192 cow calf animal months between October 15 - June 15). The irrigated pasture on the deeded land, together with the forest allotment, makes this a very attractive offering and an easy ranch to manage. The ranch is located in one of the most scenic and picturesque areas in Arizona, having views of Sycamore Canyon, Sedona and the Red Rock Country and the San Francisco Peaks. Rarely does a ranch with such steeped Western history, outstanding riparian characteristics and water rights come available on the market. This ranch truly is a crown jewel, not only of the Verde River, but in the entire southwestern United States. A lot has changed over the 110 years that the Perkins have owned this ranch, except for the ownership. For the first time in over a century, the historic Perkins Ranch can be yours.
