The Hufford Hereford Ranch is a diverse business opportunity located in the Oregon high desert near the small community of Fort Rock, southeast of Bend, Oregon. The ranch contains three fully developed businesses: hay production, seed stock cattle, and solar electricity. The markets for hay, cattle, and electricity are in place and transferable. The solar project contains an expansion plan, the cattle have a client base, and the hay has established domestic and foreign buyers. The climate is conducive for the production of high-quality alfalfa hay, strong and hearty cattle, and clean, renewable electricity.
Ken and Leslie Hufford have built a number of ranches through the years, giving them the knowledge and expertise to put a property together that maintains a high level of functionality. The thoughtful grazing rotation for the cattle and the extensive working facilities allow a producer to maximize both time and natural resources. The farm ground is level, virtually rodent-free, and has been maintained to optimize production. The machines are well cared for, and there are excellent storage facilities, some of which are new. The homes, shops, and other buildings have no deferred maintenance and are very nice without being overbuilt. The solar project has its own access from the south side of the ranch and is designed to have minimal intrusion on the daily activities of the ranch.
This property will work financially during a market that appears to value lifestyle over economic viability. The Hufford ranch can provide a living along with a quiet, country lifestyle. The ranch is at the end of a private road and backs up to the Devil’s Garden. Devil’s Garden is a lava flow that spans several square miles and blocks access to the back of the ranch. This ranch property is outstanding and ready for the next owner to enjoy.
