Water:  The property has 1060 acre/ft of pre– 1914 water rights.  The irrigation water can be used on approximately 200 designated acres on the ranch.  There is a $450.00 annual assessment.

Water is delivered via a siphon system.  There is a new solar system & siphon pipe located on Stonycreek that feeds the pipeline.  There are no pumping costs for irrigation water.

The intake is the 1st of the water users on Stonycreek.  This makes the Old Corkill Ranch one of the easiest to irrigate along Stonycreek.

Currently the owner irrigates approximately 120 acres.  With minimal upgrades the irrigated pasture could be expanded to include 200 acres and increase the summer carrying capacity to approximately 200 pair.

Home:  There is a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom 1254 Sqft Home on the property where a caretaker currently resides.  He irrigates the entire ranch and does minor fence repairs & doctoring.  Compensation terms are available upon request to qualified buyers.

Fence:  The perimeter and cross fences are in good shape.  The current owners have spent a lot of time & money upgrading the cross & border fences.

Recreation:  Stonyford is a dirt bike riding destination.  This ranch offers plenty of space to build a huge dirt bike track and also has private access to the Mendocino National Forest where there are miles & miles of trails.

Hunting:  The property offers fantastic deer, turkey & pig hunting.  Black tail deer and wild pigs come in from the National Forest on a regular basis.  There are almost always turkeys on the ranch as well.  There are also Tule Elk that come though from time to time.  There have been a few in the area that have scored in the B&C 300+ off of nearby ranches.

This property shares its west boundary with the Mendocino National Forest.  It has a locked gate for private access to the National Forests 913,306 acres.  There are miles & miles of trails that traverse through this massive forest.

Boating:  East Park Reservoir is about 15 minutes away from the ranch.  It’s a popular waterskiing & bass fishing lake.  There is a public boat launch on the east side of the lake.  It’s open all summer and offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.

Fishing:  Stonycreek is a year round stream that has public access just a few miles away from this ranch.  It’s the same stream that delivers irrigation water to the property.  It’s a great place to go trout fishing.  One of the last hidden gems in California.  The fishing is very good, but isn’t crowded.

Storage:  There is enough hay storage at the ranch headquarters to store about 3.5 truck loads.

Ponds:  The irrigated pasture drains into 6 ponds.  5 of these ponds hold water year round.  The bottom pond would be a great place to stock bass.  It’s deep enough to sustain a fish population year round.

Price:  $1,750,000

Terms:  Cash at the close of escrow

Comments:  Great all around ranch!  Excellent water rights, carrying capacity, and operational costs!  This is truly a turn-key operation with some upside for a potential buyer.  There are very few ranches that boast nearly free irrigation water.  Please call 530-666-7000 for a private showing today!
