Zundel Farms – Riverside, Utah
Calls Are Welcome at 801-560-4259 or 801-232-8424.
A sizable holding of 684 acres of prime irrigated cropland in Northern Utah is available for the first time since 1933. Because of estate planning needs and health concerns the Zundel Family has decided to sell.
This fertile land is irrigated by strong water rights in the Bear River Canal Company which has long been considered a premier provider of irrigation water from the reliable Bear River Watershed. Each water share has a duty of 4.00 acre-feet. Water costs are about $51.00 per acre annually – $26.00 for annual O&M assessment and $25.00 for electric power for pressure pumps out of the canal – no lifting of water from deep wells.
The soils are some of the best in the area – Class I and II – with production averages per acres of about 6.00 tons on alfalfa, 27.00 tons on silage corn, and 110 bushels on barley.
A smaller feeding facility can handle about 700 head of cattle.
Sales at $9,500 to $12,500 per irrigated acre have been closed recently. Smaller five to ten-acre parcels for residential and equestrian uses are bringing $15,000 to $30,000 per acre. In the past decade, irrigated farm land in Northern Box Elder County – especially with the water rights previously described – has been deemed as one of the safest land investments in the entire Mountain West.
Cash land rents of $200.00 per acre are not uncommon. Given the right circumstances, a lease-back by a younger member of the Zundel Family on the cropland is a possibility.
This extraordinary opportunity to own significant acreage with unusual operational scale is offered at $7,022,000 Cash.
