Notice something different? As Farm & Ranch Publishing, LLC moves into its 25th year we looked at the future and decided that to better serve our broker clients and readers, we needed to find a partner that had the experience and knowledge to help us meet our 21st century needs. We are pleased to announce a partnership with Texas Monthly, a leading statewide and regional powerhouse with more than two million readers of its magazines and more than a million unique visitors to its website. We can’t think of better partners as we have served a similar, affluent audience for decades. As one of the many benefits of our new partnership, David Dunham, current Vice President of Development at Texas Monthly, will be taking the helm as the new publisher for Farm & Ranch.

FROM THE PUBLISHER Farm & Ranch has long been known as the preeminent resource for buyers and sellers of fine rural real estate, and we will build on that legacy as we continue to tie the knot between discerning buyers and their dream farm or ranch. To that end, we are planning the following: • Launch a totally rebuilt and redesigned website, farmandranch.com, in November 2017. It will be the perfect complement to our magazines, and a great platform for the future of Farm & Ranch with superior design and improved user interface for our broker clients. • Enhance our readers’ experience with editorial content including stories and photography from throughout the U.S. • Refine our distribution to geo-target affluent buyers, both in their homes and select newsstands. • Effective with our spring issue, increase our circulation by 17 percent to better serve our readers and broker clients. • And finally, as we continue to grow our national brand, with our spring issue we will change our name from Farm & Ranch West to simply Farm & Ranch. We are hoping that you will come along for the ride. Whether you are a long-time advertiser or subscriber or just the occasional newsstand reader, you are the other part of this new partnership. Please let us know what you would like to see as part of our collective future. You can reach me at ddunham@farmandranch.com. Our winter issue will close ad reservations on November 3, and trust me—you don’t want to miss it! To request a media kit or reserve your ad you can reach out to our National Sales Manager, Katy Franklin, at katy@farmandranch.com. In the meantime, I look forward to hearing from you.

RANCH

Rising from the river valley to the mountain top

S

panning an enormous block of contiguous deeded land, the Motherwell Ranch is distinguished by its exceptional privacy, diverse landscape, abundant water, plentiful wildlife and accessible location. This landmark property stands out as a rare example of a large-scale Colorado mountain ranch combining multifaceted recreational and agricultural resources in one complete and balanced package. The Motherwell is situated in the scenic Williams Fork River valley along the north flank of the Flat Tops Mountains of northwest Colorado. Entering at the ranch gate, one is immediately struck by the stunning landscape embodied by this 10,350Âą acre property. From the cottonwood-lined river and hay meadows in the foreground, to the timbered skyline in the distance, nearly the entire field of view is encompassed by the ranch. 8

Volume 68 Farm&Ranch West


Colorado v Routt County v Steamboat Springs Beyond the private bridge over the river, the ranch rises 2,550 feet in elevation over five miles to the national forest boundary, blending a rich mosaic of irrigated meadows, grass pastures, rolling foothills, verdant mountain parks and forests of aspen and conifers. The upper third of the ranch was formerly a part of Routt National Forest and remains representative of the quality and character of the finest lands found in our national forests. Historically the ranch has been operated as a highly-regarded hunting destination for trophy elk and mule deer. Complementing the outstanding wildlife component of the Motherwell is plentiful water for fishing, boating, aesthetics, irrigation and stock water. Its slopes are predominantly north-facing, resulting in lush ecosystems laden with a multitude

of springs, creeks, ponds and wallows. The higher elevations of the property are highlighted by three beautiful mountain lakes ranging between 10 and 20 surface acres in size. The lower ranch is anchored by 3.3 miles of both sides of the Williams Fork River, an excellent trout-fishing stream. The scenic and recreational strengths of the Motherwell are further enhanced by its extraordinary privacy and location. Encompassing one contiguous land mass of more than 16-square-miles, the ranch has no private inholdings and no impacts from public roads. This is rare for a ranch this size, and results in exceptional seclusion. Yet for all its privacy, the front gate is only 20 minutes from the region’s commercial airport, and world-class ski resort amenities with full services are only 45 minutes away in Steamboat Springs, striking the perfect balance between accessibility and escape.

10 Volume 68 Farm&Ranch West


Well-suited improvements consisting of the ranch headquarters buildings, owner’s home, guest cabins and hunting lodge provide comfortable accommodations without being overdone. Extensive equestrian facilities are complemented by livestock operation support buildings and quality fencing. Private bridges over the river link to an excellent network of interior roads and trails to access all the various activity destinations throughout the ranch. Thoughtfully assembled by current ownership through a series of private and public land acquisitions, the Motherwell has benefited from enduring stewardship that is now in its fourth decade. Additionally, there are no conservation easements on the ranch, leaving it unrestricted and preserving that option for the next owner. $45 million, contact Brian Smith. 970-879-5544. v

T

he changing West is sometimes best understood by identifying the evolving desires of today’s “new” ranch owner. Nowadays, many western ranch buyers are searching for more than a fence, homestead or hayfield. They are in search of a piece of the simpler past. A place to build a legacy. A place to slow down time with their family while they still have an opportunity.

They’re looking for a place to live an adventure. The Western Ranch Dream As our world experiences the reality of smaller and fewer spaces left untouched, the vast skylines of the West still hold the true majesty of understanding what creation really is and how we are truly blessed to enjoy it. Can you remember the last night you spent in the open without a single light on any horizon in any direction? There is little in this world that inspires appreciation like spending a night under star-filled skies, truly seeing the Milky Way, or sitting atop a high ridge as the sun breaks to the east, cold mist floating up from the valley bottoms as elk bugles ring across the hillsides. The recent Trace Adkins song Just Fishin’ perfectly paints the picture of what I call livin’. It’s the story of a young girl spending time with her dad, sitting lakeside, casting out, just enjoying time with something that doesn’t have a LCD screen. This lyric clearly brings home this point about focus on appreciation: I guarantee this memory’s a big’in, And she thinks we’re just fishin’.

The Western Ranch Story You can understand western ranches even better when you know how the West was settled. The higher portions of the West, with their high peaks, steep hillsides and alpine valleys, were typically settled in search of minerals, typically in deeded, 10-acre mining claims. Some areas in the Mountain West may see hundreds of 10-acre claims covering one mountain, with each and every parcel deeded to a different owner. These high alpine, mineral-rich areas flowed down to larger tracts of land known as placer claims, which were originally laid out as 160-acre ore processing areas.

48 Volume 68 Farm&Ranch West

As you continue to head downstream, you would come to the first real mountain valleys. These became townships, providing materials and goods to the higher claims. As the valleys continue to widen, you would start to see homesteads producing cattle and potatoes for the upstream communities. This history is the main reason so many of the high alpine mountains near the west ski areas contain so few large, deeded ranches. Today, that same lack of deeded ground has driven the limited supply into higher valued purchases. In the Mountain West, you can find larger deeded ranches where large sheep/cattle

and ag operations are the mainstay. In northern Colorado and southern Wyoming, you will find some spectacular mountain ranches, where cost-per-acre for lush, game-covered mountain ground will be less expensive than dry West Texas plains acreage. In areas like western New Mexico and eastern Utah, you may measure the cow by the section but you can find some very large ranches with truly unthought-of attributes. Many of these types of ranches are located hours from any type of ski area or upbeat mountain town, but they provide a western experience just a bit closer to the true history of the West.


The Modern Western Ranch Journey If you’re an adventure ranch buyer, your challenge starts with clearly understanding what your property goals are and then determining how best to make a wise investment work with available budgets. You also have to recognize what your ranch perspective is, along with issues like land logistics, regional amenities and travel times. Making the right choice in the right area, on land that provides the right attributes, can make your ranch purchase the legacy property of many dreams. Ranch values are widely diverse across the west. Large acreages don’t necessarily mean large dollars. In some areas, a big ranch may total less than a couple hundred acres, while in other areas of the West, without thousands of acres, a ranch may have little to offer.

When you lay out your goals for a ranch purchase, take into consideration what you personally consider to be the needed amenities. Is close proximity to local activities a deal maker or a deal breaker? In many cases, we find the guys love the more remote properties with long drives, no people and BIG back yards, while many ladies, and a growing number of our kids, like to be just a bit closer to regional attributes, like the ski valley, a mountain town or even a bit of shopping. This is one of the larger first steps in defining your ranch search, and your answers shed light on a better understanding of ranch values for you. For example, there is a ranch located just minutes from outstanding luxuries, medical facilities, shopping and dining in the small mountain town of Lake City, Colorado.

Appropriately named Bucksnort Ranch, due to the meadows populated with deer and elk, the ranch backs into over two million acres of public land and is fronted by 34,000± acres of wilderness study area. This ranch has what many call the perfecta, low taxes due to ag status with strong water rights, great improvements, a main house and guest house, a mile of premier trout stream and five-acre trout lake, all with the ease of county-maintained, year-round access. Lying in a western mountain county with 96.5 percent public lands, a skyline of 5 to 14,000foot peaks, limitless high mountain lakes, streams and trails, this smaller, 184-deeded acres is one of the county’s largest ranches. This is the type of ranch where you realize that smaller is bigger, and you don’t have to own the castle to live like a king. FarmAndRanch.com

In your ranch journey, it is important to research these questions: • How are you going to access your ranch? • Are you a private flyer with the ability to travel great distances in short times? If so, what’s your desired window of flight time? If you are flying private and/or commercial, what’s the closest airport access? • If you’ll be driving to and from the ranch, are your drive goals within 8, 10 or 12 hours? Pay close attention to travel routes. • Do you have any issues with altitude? If so, what’s your envelope of comfort? • Are you looking for a full-season ranch or a summer escape? • Is your family growing and what ages of enjoyment will the ranch need to accommodate? • Is fall hunting a priority? If so, you need to focus on state regulations, regional game counts, big game migration routes, hunter success ratios, area ranches big enough or located well enough to hold game year-round, and whether the ranch can provide sanctuary grounds for migrating big game herds. Better understanding your goals will greatly help you make the right ranch purchase. All western ranches hold value and most see the return in value for what we call an end-user buyer. Ranches are a love, full of passion and commitment, and they provide untold joy and fulfilment year after year. On ranch after ranch, time has proven to be the best arbiter of value. Remember, a Class A ranch is a Class A ranch in both a good and bad economy, but time and enjoyment will always prove the winner. v
