Colorado rancher to sell $100M land to help foster children
An Eagle County, Colorado rancher has put her family’s 20,000 acre ranch up for sale with the hopes of using the money to help foster children find families. The $100 million Nottingham ranch has been on the market since last summer, but the rancher says she is in no hurry to sell … she wants to make sure the buyer shares her same values.
The ranch includes 1,200 pair of cattle and calves; over 50,000 acres of leases for grazing permits; 2,000 acres of flood irrigation plus 1,200 acres irrigated by pivot irrigation systems and produces 3,500 tons of hay annually. The price includes livestock and equipment as well as seven residences and additional cabins. The land is surrounded by the National Forest, Flat Tops Wilderness or BLM property. One of the largest elk herds of Colorado is located in this area and a very successful private hunting outfitter has been based on the ranch for 23 years.
