Ever wonder what it would be like to live in paradise? Now's your opportunity to own this exquisite ranch. Agua Fria Ranch is a mid size ranch with great prospects. The ranch is currently being run as a purebred Angus operation, private hunting retreat, and paint horse breeding ranch in a stunning setting just west of Quemado, New Mexico. Elevations on the ranch range from +/- 6800 feet to +/-7500, with typically mild summers and winters. Summertime highs will be in the mid 80's with wintertime highs in the high 40's to low 50's. There are 1200 deeded acres, 80 acres of NM State grazing lease, and a 5220 acre BLM grazing allotment that run 90 head year long. The ranch is divided into five large pastures and three small pastures and is well-watered with five wells, four storage tanks, one mile of pipeline, eleven dirt tanks, and two natural lake bottoms. There is a 1792 s.f. four bedroom, two bath, manufactured home on the property with excellent access. The property is a prime candidate for a conservation easement or land exchange with the BLM.

The ranch currently receives four rifle bull tags per year and private mule deer tags. The scenic lakes/reservoirs are located on deeded land and attract abundant wildlife.
