Harney Creek Ranch: Grazing, Recreation, and Seclusion in Wyoming

Harney Creek Ranch: Grazing, Recreation, and Seclusion in Wyoming

Welcome to the 592 +/- acre Harney Creek Ranch, a perfect combination of grazing, recreation, and seclusion. Tucked away in the Harney Creek drainage from the Laramie Range, the ranch is nearly undetectable until you’re dropping down into the creek bottom. The newly listed ranch is in Albany County, South of Laramie, Wyoming.

Land

The ranch is comprised of 592 +/- acres. It’s rare to find a place in this part of Wyoming where the topographic relief makes the landscape interesting, plus the benefits of irrigated hay meadows in the bottomland. Most hay fields in the area are just large, flat fields, but here the winding meadows are surrounded by steep hills and beautiful rock formations of Sherman granite, similar to Vedauwoo.

There are 57 irrigated acres under hay production, and the remainder acreage is pasture ground. Fully fenced and crossed fenced. The current owner has leased out the property to 40 pair per year or 70 yearlings.

This agriculture ranch is perfect for a small livestock operation. Hay production and hundreds of acres of excellent upland grazing, along with the two perennial streams and one ephemeral stream allow for a private, self-sustaining operation. The huge corrals and large barn add to this valuable aspect of the ranch.

Wildlife and native wildflowers are abundant. Pronghorn, mule deer and whitetail deer, along with the occasional elk and moose make for great viewing. Bobcat, muskrats and beaver frequent the pond, and even the occasional mink and weasel are really cool visitors to the ranch. Add in the aspen, narrowleaf cottonwood, river birch, and thinleaf alder along the creeks, plus late summer harvests of chokecherry and currants are icing on the cake.

Improvements

This property is completely set up and ready to go for its next owner. The historical home is just under 2000 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. This home has been updated and remodeled. The addition to the home welcomes in lots of southern exposure and is a great spot to relax. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and an eat in dining area with great views of the garden. Unique and beautiful details surround the home and fills you with some down-home roots. The home is heated with a forced-air furnace; however, the freestanding pellet stove is normally enough to keep the whole home warm and cozy.

The large 35×55 Cleary building is perfect for large or small livestock with ample space and attached loafing sheds. There are additional loafing sheds and wind protection close to this building making it a safe working space. The paddocks have self-waterers for the livestock.

There are two detached garages, historic bunkhouse and new greenhouse.

The property is on the grid; however, the owners wanted to protect the property and have installed a 10kw, 40 panel solar system with back-up generator.

Recreation

This area in and around Laramie offers adrenaline for every outdoor sports and recreation enthusiast. Just outside of Laramie, climb the rock formations of Vedauwoo and Happy Jack, located in Medicine Bow National Forest. To the west, discover the 600,000 acres of The Snowy Range.
