Known for its idyllic rural lifestyle, with friendly, wholesome neighbors and a sense of community, Powell Butte and Lazy JW Ranch will speak to the rancher or farmer in you.
Of the 323± deeded acres, 260± are lush irrigated hay and pasture lands, fenced and cross-fenced into rotational grazing pastures and hay grounds. The irrigation is a combination of 196± acres of Central Oregon Irrigation District (COID) water and 65± acres of groundwater from three wells, which have historically provided stable irrigation water delivery. This ranch is remarkably efficient, with nearly 170± acres of irrigation under a flood irrigation system, eliminating approximately two-thirds of regular irrigation pumping costs. Savings like these will add to your bottom line and productivity. The balance of the irrigation system is under wheel lines, hand lines, and one pivot.
The custom two-story farmhouse was constructed in 1980 and features three bedrooms, two offices (which could serve as additional bedrooms), and three bathrooms. Additional housing includes a modest bunkhouse, perfect for ranch/farm hand housing.
Other improvements include a large shop, a machine shed, a hayshed, and working corrals. The Lazy JW Ranch has been in the same family for over forty years and has continued to be a successful small hay and cattle operation. The seller has a list of farm and hay equipment available outside of escrow. This picturesque country setting is just minutes to Prineville and less than an hour to Bend. Come enjoy the country way of living here at Lazy JW Ranch.
