Farm And Agriculture For Sale
Montana de La Mesa Ranch, an exciting, challenging property. A high mountain mesa 1000 feet above the Rio Grande River Gorge, where thirty million years ago, the earth created what is now called the Rio Grande Rift that separates the Colorado Plateau and the rest of North America. Between Santa Fe and Taos, this divide left a uniquely situated tract of land. Surrounded by palisades of volcanic walls dropping to the river below, lies a vast gently rolling plateau. A virtual stage from which to view six mountain ranges by day and unending heavens at night. The land overlooks the Rio Grande Valley to the south where the river winds through vast orchards and farm land, lush green in the Summer and golden brilliance in the Fall. The property is vehicle accessible but challenging, ascending nearly 1000ft of elevation in a little over a mile. Imagine primal rock walls, huge boulders, and numerous arroyos, all of which make for a magical transformation when you reach the top. The property has been in the same ranching family for over 75 years. Historically it was used for seasonal sheep grazing. The property consists of two separate parcels, each with distinct unpolished Nature, raw and unrefined. Travel to access road is roughly 45 minutes from either Taos or Santa Fe.
