The Haymaker Ranch sits alone on the Cottonwood Bench just north of the High Uinta Mountain Range overlooking the historic Bridger Valley of Southwestern Wyoming. The ranch is completely surrounded by BLM public land and is a rare in-holding that controls the water rights to two drainages off the high mountains to the south. A peaceful seclusion is created by the surrounding topography and no views of any man made improvements other than what can be found on the ranch. The Haymaker Ranch consists of approximately 2,280 deeded acres along with nearly 23,000 acres of BLM grazing permits and leased private property. The life blood of the ranch is the 100 surface acre reservoir (Reed Reservoir) that is permitted to hold 1,076.2 acre feet of water. This reservoir captures the spring runoff out of the Sage Creek and Cottonwood Creek drainages of the Uinta Mountain Range. With approximately 25,000 total acres and 21,898 acres of leased summer pasture, the main ranch sits on 1,920 acres with 850 acres of BLM Land that is contiguous to the ranch. Live Water Properties represented the Buyer on the sale of this ranch.
