Farm Description

78.89 acres of prime northern Arizona ranchland situated at the ideal 5,900' elevation where are land owners enjoy the very best weather in the state. Located approximately 12 miles northeast of St. Johns in Apache County, the land enjoys scenic long range views of the surrounding wilderness mountains and secluded valleys. Outdoor work is here rarely curtailed due to the weather. The winters here are mild, typically producing less than 20” of snow most of which falls at a rate of two to three inches per storm and melts into the soil within a day or two. The average high temperature in the coldest month of January is 50 degrees. Summer temperatures are mild with daytime highs averaging in the upper 80s. Summer temperatures see additional cooling with the arrival of the seasonal monsoon rains. Typically arriving in mid-July, these refreshing afternoon rains spark a profusion of colorful wildflowers and turn the ranch's lush native range grasses vivid green. Evergreen juniper trees growing in the northeast portion of the property blend well with acres of grassy meadowland that spread across the balance of the land. A prominent rise with 360-Degree views situated in the wooded area of the property offers an outstanding location for a cabin or RV pad. The scenic Aquaje Draw crosses through the northwest portion of the land. This interesting land feature channels the summer rainwater flows through the property on their way into the valley below. The acreage also borders 640 acres of uninhabited Arizona State Trust lands which provides a quiet scenic backdrop to this peaceful land. Access is via maintained ranch roads. The acreage is level and usable throughout and can be easily fenced to contain livestock. The land surface is blanketed with a fine tillable sandy loam soil, ideal for the raising of vegetables and fruit trees. Apples, cherries plumbs, pears and a host of garden vegetables thrive in this soil. A range of nutrient rich native grasses and colorful wildflowers grow in the loam soil as well.

The land has a secure groundwater supply from its positioning over the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer and private wells are allowed without permitting requirements. A free access convenience well is available to the property owner for water hauling back to their land. Many area ranch owners also transport their water from St. Johns, where two distribution stations provide fresh domestic quality water for only a penny a gallon. ($10 for each 1,000 gallons).

This is a very secluded location and best suited for people seeking large acreage ownership well away from neighboring owners and who place a premium on the freedom to use and work their land in a quiet and peaceful wilderness setting free of urban noise and pollution. All corner markers have been set by registered surveyors and the recorded map with all property dimensions is provided to the new owners. The maintained road access to the property is built entirely along title insured easements recorded with the county recorder's office. The residential, recreational and agricultural zoning allows livestock, camping and RV use at the owner's discretion.
