The Kragh/Owen family moved into the Colorado Territory in 1872, and have kept this farmland intact and maintained the integrity of the great soil and land. The property is on an annual lease with a neighboring farmer and can be negotiated.
WATER AND MINERAL RIGHTS

The annual withdrawal rights are: Laramie-Fox Hills Aquifer 67.2 Acre Feet and the Lower Arapahoe Aquifer 43.50 Acre Feet.

The 312-acre farm is located within an upcoming rural residential and development area, but all development in the area is for larger acreage including ranchettes creating a true rural atmosphere. Being in farming and ranch community this is a big draw for potential buyers.

The farm is perfect for buyers wanting to get rural. It has a great setting. A buyer could also subdivide a portion of the property and keep a fair amount of the land for themselves and make a profit on the lots, all with having control of the development.
