The Hohnholz Ranch is an all contiguous ranch spanning 4 miles east to west and 2.5 miles north to south. Mature cottonwoods, aspens, and willows line the property’s lush river corridor. Winding river bottom rises into gently rolling native range and sub-irrigated pasture. Water rights are some of the oldest in this valley, permitted to irrigate 395 acres, which is currently in native timothy hay production. With the Laramie River and the springs of Pfister Draw, the property provides abundant water for livestock and wildlife. The upper range lands provide vital private winter range habitat for Elk and Mule deer that pour in from the surrounding BLM land and National Forest. From its location on the banks of the Upper Laramie River, the ranch offers views of the Medicine Bow Mountains. Individual ranges of the Snowy’s and Rawah’s provide mountain peak backdrops. The Ranch is 45 minutes to Laramie and just under 2 hours to Ft. Collins, CO. Elevation on the ranch varies from 7,800’ to over 8,400’. The Laramie River riparian runs, riffles, side-channels, stream structure, and deeper holes provide habitat to a healthy and private population of rainbow and brown trout. Currently leased for fishing per day per rod, or by the week or month, the 6 different fishing cabins have a waiting list that can extend years out. These leases can be canceled at closing.
Hohnholz Ranch has been a home for up to 180 cattle year round and the USFS and BLM Grazing allotments are a vital part of ranching in the Rocky Mountains. The cattle that call the ranch home have learned through generations where and when to go to the summer range and return home. The cattle are available by private treaty outside of the real estate offering. Possession of the Ranch will be dictated by where Sellers are in the use of these allotments. The Ranch improvements are extensive for a year round cattle operation. There is the original owner’s home, two additional employee houses, calving barns, working corrals, pens, barns and sheds. A complete list of improvements will be provided.
Well rounded productive and recreational ranches seldom come on the market, and even rarer are those with the fishing resource of the Hohnholz Ranch. A long held family ranch, the Sellers considered placement of a conservation easement prior to the sale. Ultimately the Sellers chose not to place the easement and will hope the next owners of this outstanding ranch will be good stewards and consider the placement of a Conservation Easement.
