The well-known 17,102 deeded acre Lost Creek Land and Livestock property is an exceptionally well-located, multifaceted investment opportunity. Appealing as a productive, income-producing farm and ranch, there are many other aspects to this property. With 2,620 pivot irrigated acres and 14,480 acres of grazing land, Lost Creek is less than an hours drive to downtown Denver and just over 30 minutes to Denvers international airport. The ranch has over six miles of frontage on I-76 with access at the Roggen interchange.
With all eighteen of its irrigation wells located in the Lost Creek Ground Water Basin, no augmentation water is required. This is a significant benefit compared to many northeastern Colorado farms. The superb water resources on Lost Creek are used to grow a wide variety of crops such as potatoes, edible beans, alfalfa, corn and small grains.
Current owners have also investigated the feasibility of converting this water to other uses which could then be transported to the growing metropolitan area between Fort Collins and Denver. Owners estimate potential for over 3,500 acre feet of transferable consumptive-use water from the Lost Creek property.
Complementing the irrigated lands are expansive native rangelands used for a 500-700 cow/calf operation. Buildings on the property include three homes, an office and apartment, two modular dwellings, hay storage, shop, and livestock facilities. These are not extravagant improvements but are well suited to handle the day-to-day needs of a working farm and ranch. Located in agriculturally friendly Weld County, the property is ideal for a large dairy or cattle feeding operation.
Lost Creek Land and Cattle has a proven history of profitable farm and ranch operations. As a result of its nearby location to the rapidly growing metropolitan Denver and Front Range communities its future potential as a water resource, agribusiness site, residential or commercial development or combination of uses is very viable.
