The Porter RanchColorado Legacy Ranch for sale near Aspen & Glenwood Springs Large acreage Western Colorado ranch with abundant water rights for sale Large ranches in the Aspen/Vail/Grand Junction triangle do not often come up for sale, but the Porter Ranch, located just a few miles south of the town of New Castle, is now on the market. The ranch has excellent assets, including 3,526 deeded acres, superior water rights, beautiful year-round climate, irrigated hay meadows, world-class hunting, easy access to I-70 and airports, and a blank slate for future development. Centrally located on the I-70 corridor between Grand Junction, Aspen, Vail, and Glenwood Springs The Porter Ranch is easily accessed from Exit 105 on I-70, which parallels the Colorado River as it flows through New Castle and then down to Rifle and Grand Junction.

The Porter Ranch is located at a pleasing elevation for year-round enjoyment Many Western ranches are located at high elevation, where heavy snowfall can make life difficult. Winters are long and frozen, involving feeding hay to hungry animals, plowing snow, and waiting for spring. Fall comes too quickly and it’s winter again. With the Porter Ranch headquarters at 6,000 feet in elevation, the ranch has an enjoyable year-round climate. Spring comes earlier, fall arrives later, and the ranch enjoys a long growing season. The upper reaches of the ranch top out at 7,800 feet, so there are zones that have a longer winter, but generally speaking the weather is pleasant on the Porter Ranch. Water resources on the Porter Ranch for saleexcellent water rights for ranching or future development As the saying goes in the West, whiskey’s for drinking; water’s for fighting, because water is such a precious resource. The Porter Ranch has several different diversion points from local creeks to water the ranch, as well as a large reservoir situated on the top of a ridge overlooking the ranch. Fed by mountain snowmelt, the reservoir holds about 1,200 acre feet of water that is entirely dedicated to the ranch. Further, the Porter family installed a network of underground water pipelines to irrigate close to 800 acres of the ranch with pressurized sprinklers, which makes for an easy job of irrigating and results in quality hay production.
