Hulteen Orchards is nestled in southwest Colorado’s Delta County, just south of Grand Junction and north of Montrose, both of which provide convenient air access, great dining, shopping and world-class winter sports-and minutes from popular Western big game hunting destinations sits Antelope Hill.
The property is conveniently located 10 miles outside Delta and only minutes from the Gunnison River, that offers some of the best trout fishing around. This rare find spans 1,990 +/- acres with over 200 acres sitting on the mesa, 170 of which are irrigatable and boast incredible water rights. The property is home to a working orchard packed with fruit trees all gearing up for the 2021 summer crop. The orchard farm for sale currently features 114 acres of fruit trees, including 70 acres of peaches, 40 acres of cherries, 4 acres of pluot (a plum/apricot hybrid) and 2 acres of apples. Well-established and active since 1950, the family owned and operated business provides an excellent cash flow and beautiful views. The farm has been serving the community and nearby states for 70 years. It is touted as producing the world’s best sweet cherries, thanks to the mountain climate that is dry and warm during the day and cool at night. The climate is ideal for producing perfectly-ripened fruit.
Dark, red, juicy Bing and plump golden Rainier cherries burst with intense flavor that is tough to get anywhere else. Look for the brand TOM Tom; it’s an original cherry crate label available in supermarkets throughout Colorado and neighboring states. This is a great opportunity to own a legacy orchard with onsite packing and production facilities.
Five houses exist on the grounds and include three workers’ cabins situated near the onsite packing plant. This jewel is way more than just a cash-producing orchard. With panoramic views second to none, one can marvel at the vistas of the Grand Mesa, the Uncompagre Plateau and the West Elks of Paonia all from the mesa. Keeping this in mind, the buyer may decide that the highest and best use of the property is to maintain the orchard and develop the view lots all the way around its perimeter. Every building site would have its own unique incredible view.
At approximately 5,500 feet in elevation, the property backs up to the shores of the Harts Basin reservoir, which holds water year-round and can be your personal hotspot for outdoor adventures, sitting on nearly 500 acres of federal land. Located in Game Management Unit GMU 52, the recreational ranch qualifies for landowner vouchers through which you could get mule deer tags every year. Between Harts Basin and the privately-held spring-fed ponds, there also is outstanding duck and goose hunting available. Nearly 2 miles of current creek runs year-round across the southeast side of the property. In the current Covid-19 environment, buyers are actively looking to relocate to Western Colorado. This the perfect time to develop large lots with outstanding views. There has never been a better place for social distancing.
