The Sparkes, Ellsworth Ranch is comprised of 998± acres of deeded land with 543± acres of irrigated crop ground and pasture. The ranch is located just to the NE of Carey, overlooking the Carey Lake Wildlife Management area. What makes this ranch special is the gravity flow irrigation water, flowing out of the High Line Canal. At present the ranch runs 125 head of black angus cows and calves on the irrigated pasture and some dry land pasture. Located close to many of the wonderful outdoor activities Idaho has to offer, this could be a fantastic, income producing ranch headquarters.

The additional 203 acres with water rights, is located just west of the property separated by 40 acres of an adjacent land owner.
