That’s why we’re here. We offer everyone the chance to experience nature in a way they’ve only imagined. In fact, if there’s one thing our homeowners share in common, it’s a love for the outdoors, and they all appreciate having over 5,600 acres to roam at their leisure. Those who visit never want to leave, and that’s why this is an exciting time at Shadow Creek.”

and gamble oaks, together with the Ranch’s lakes create a panorama of color and dignified beauty. Set atop the majestic 7,300' Mogollon Rim, the 42,000±-acre ranch is a combination of privately owned property and U.S. Forest Service grazing permit and a testament to the classic Western family ranch—with a twist. “Every ranch is unique,” said Richard E. Bunger, sometimes called “REB,” CEO and managing member of the Dutch Joe Ranch and REB Properties, LLC. “But the Dutch Joe Ranch is altogether different. The research, the approach, the development, the talent, the innovation, all are unique—it stems from a dedication by me, my family and my entire staff to a project with practical environmental depth and an emphasis on family values, but the Ranch is, and always has been, an operating cattle and horse ranch.” Richard E. Bunger’s inspiration comes from his great-grandfather, Sam Bunger, who settled in Arizona near the turn of the 20th century. The family, with many others, participated in overgrazing and heavy logging. Creatively working with the U.S. Forest Service and Arizona Game and Fish Department, Bunger hopes to bring together “practical” environmentally conscious people who have a positive impact on restoring the forest and create an example for others to follow. “Sustainability is a tricky term. People say ‘green’ living, but I hope to expand the meaning to include not only green concepts, but to add sustaining and protecting my most valuable asset: my extended family,” said Bunger. “Every innovation in forestry, mining, food production and energy development ensures their safety and provides everything needed to physically sustain themselves in their own backyard.” Unlike most ranches, the Dutch Joe lies completely “off grid” and provides independence

Cell phone and Internet services are available through a Ranch-owned private tower, powered entirely with solar and wind power. Future “off grid” projects include: a mostly underground greenhouse system to grow vegetables and food crops year-round; raising “non-caged,” “free range” chickens for meat and eggs; and wood-burning steampowered electrical generation. Individual plots and/or greenhouses for Ranchowners are also encouraged.

Richard E. Bunger and his family call The Dutch Joe home and fully participate in all aspects of the Ranch’s development and activities. “I welcome anyone who has a passion for the environment and sustainability and desires to build a place where their family can feel protected and provided for in these uncertain and dangerous times—a family “sanctuary”—a place for anyone who wants to invest in the present to secure their future.”

from utility companies by producing electrical power via a network of solar panels and some wind power with backup generators. Internet and television are available via satellite systems. In addition, the Ranch can provide residents with beef from the extensive cattle herd and plentiful fish from the numerous stocked lakes. The lake system, created with materials from the Ranch excavation and mining program, includes six lakes designed and landscaped to take advantage of the diverse terrain and carefully planned to maximize fish habitat, boating and fishing access. Large quantities of rainbow trout have been introduced into three lakes and channel catfish, largemouth bass, crappie and purebred blue gill have been introduced into the remaining three. The fish receive a carefully balanced food supplement diet. Says Bunger, “Our fishing policy is barbless ‘catch-and-release.’ All net fishing license fee income generated is planned for donation to the Ranch Environmental Fund.” Over the years, hundreds of thousands of acres of dense forests within and surrounding the Ranch have seen their share of neglect, allowing for large amounts of brush and smaller trees to dominate in an unhealthy, fire-prone fashion. Dutch Joe Ranch forest personnel have performed extensive forest restoration and remediation on Ranch properties, as well as providing cash grants to the U.S. Forest Service to perform restoration of nearby U.S. National Forest. “Having healthy lake and

Forest restoration includes thinning the excess and unhealthy trees, removing brush and overall enhancing the health of the forest. This prevents excessively hot and aggressive wildfires that not only endanger the forest and wildlife, but also Ranch residents. “The Ranch is reputed to be the most wildfire-defensible property in the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest,” said Bunger.

The Dutch Joe Ranch offers numerous training and activity programs for those just taking their first steps into the outdoors, and their first steps in Ranch management, and also for veteran Ranchers who have worked the land for years. “The Ranch is more than just for working; we want everyone to experience the land, and the way of life in sustainability ranching—and have a little fun in the process,” said Bunger.

forest environments protects the land and people. I want the Ranch to entertain and teach younger generations the values of respecting the environment and each other.” Looking at the Ranch’s multi-purpose barn and training facility, one instantly gets a sense of the size and scale of the Ranch’s working facilities and amenities. At 74,880 square feet, the barn offers adequate space and the perfect year-round venue for horse training, Ranch rodeo events, family gatherings, largescale Ranch events and can serve as a shelter for hundreds in the event of a national or environmental emergency. The activities spill into the outdoors and onto the proposed custom ATV training course and shooting range. In addition to the Ranch’s customized nine-person, six-wheeled ATVs, trail rides with horses, various antique stagecoaches, ATVs, mountain bikes or just hiking can be enjoyed on many miles of Ranch trails or on trails within the millions of acres of the surrounding Apache-Sitgreaves Forest. Becoming a Ranchowner is more than just owning an Undivided Interest in the total Ranch. A Ranchowner may build their dream Ranchhouse on a Ranchstead within


the Ranchowner’s “area of exclusion” of approximately .5 acre and larger, or on a 36acre or larger Private Ranch Estate. With an Undivided Interest purchase, you are a true Ranchowner. In addition to your Ranchstead site, you own an Undivided Interest in the Ranch cattle, horses, multi-use barn, lakes and fishing operations, ATV program, recreational areas, sand and gravel mining operation and common areas in proportion to the area of your Ranchstead as it is a percentage of the total Ranch. With your Undivided Interest Ranch ownership, you are legitimately entitled to wear your own hat, boots and big belt buckle, and walk with a “steely-eyed” confidence. “I didn’t create the Dutch Joe as a temporary investment. The Ranch is dedicated to longterm, practical environmental conservation and sustainability, in all its broad meanings, for individuals, for families and every following generation,” said Bunger. In fact, the future at the Ranch shows incredible promise. In addition to Phase I amenities and features already in place, the planned development opportunities are exciting and far-reaching. Even as current plans thrive, Richard Bunger plans to lead his engineering, architectural and

construction teams to new projects that will even further enhance the Dutch Joe Ranch. “Make no mistake, potential lies everywhere,” said Bunger. “Every day is a new discovery and opportunity for further environmental and sustainable developments abound-with individual rights and family always in mind.” Suspended directly overhead amidst the clear Arizona sky, the sun casts the first afternoon rays upon the forest as Richard Bunger strolls to the edge of the Ranch. Resting a foot on the bottom fence rail, Richard rests upon the bark-roughened fence and silently views the land beyond. The lush forest appears as always, but today, something catches his eye. Hopping the fence, he hikes through the grass and falls to a knee. Pushing back the brush and tree limbs, he reveals a solitary tombstone. Aged by years of neglect and the unforgiving elements, the discolored stone is etched with a solemn message: Will Erixson - Kil - July 1885. Once, lives were lost here. Once, families were torn. Once, the land suffered. Today, the Earth still speaks, the independent, self-reliant pioneer legacy still lives and families are safe and sustained at the Dutch Joe Ranch. v For more information, contact Richard E.

One of the most unique high country properties in the West, these 1,610 deeded acres present an amazing array of opportunities to sportsmen, equestrians and wildlife enthusiasts alike. Overlooking Eagle Nest Lake and the entire Moreno Valley from Angel Fire to Red River, and bordered by another 33,000 acres of State Wildlife Reserve, this stunningly beautiful tract of land comprises a remarkably abundant wildlife habitat. To ensure its permanence, a large conservation easement protects part of the acreage, and as many as 33 landowner elk permits are available from New Mexico Game and Fish.

Solar-powered water wells feed three ponds. For sportsmen, the hunting and fishing opportunities in the area are endless and include Ted Turner’s nearby Vermejo Park Ranch.
