Ranch Location

The farm is located between Longmont and Berthoud. It is surrounded by other like-type agricultural and residential estates. Consisting of 180+/- acres, the farm is protected by a conservation easement to restrict subdivision but allows most agricultural uses. The farm is flat-to-gently-sloping downward to the south, with surface drainage to the south toward the Frank & Darby slough, at an average elevation of 5,140 ft. The residence is placed at the north end of the property with private paved road access from 95th Street. The farm owns the 40 acre Crystal Lake and controls all the water storage with direct frontage that includes a boat dock and recreation area.

Land

Meadow Green Farm developed 18 lots around Crystal Lake that have limited recreation use and have used the farm personnel for maintenance and irrigation. Currently each homeowner pays the farm $800 per lot during the season for irrigation. The HOA pays $73,000 for irrigation and maintenance of the common areas. Contact listing broker for details. A new owner can continue this which compliments and helps defer the labor used on the farm, or discontinue.
