Situated in a quiet region of the Cache Valley, the Diamond J represents one of the largest undeveloped properties at the eastern base of the Wellsville Mountains. Known for its strong production of agricultural and dairy products, the Cache Valley boasts lush green pastures, a great sense of community, and a proud pioneer heritage. Ownership of the ranch provides great long-term investment potential for a family seeking a retreat in conjunction with the ongoing agricultural operations.
The westernmost border of this spectacular property flanks the Wasatch Cache National Forest. This property features stunning picturesque views of the Wellsville Mountains, one of the steepest ranges in the Rockies. The ranch is 185 acres in size and affords plenty of privacy. Easy access to Diamond J is from State Highway 23 between Mendon and Wellsville, two towns that have escaped the dramatic growth and crowds seen further south along the Wasatch Front.
The eastern portion of the Diamond J rises gently from about 4,700 feet for ¾’s of a mile to the westernmost boundary which borders the Wasatch Cache National Forest at 5,100 feet. The entire 2½ mile property boundary is fenced. There are no building improvements on the ranch so a new owner has a blank slate to work with.
Pleasant summer months bless this region of Utah and the climate lends to lush green valleys in the spring and longer summer growing seasons.
Cache County Utah offers outstanding fishing, biking, hiking, skiing, and golfing. There are 3 trail systems in the Wellsville Mountain Wilderness totaling approximately 17 miles of trails. Hunting opportunities exist in the area due to close proximity to the national forest.
The property would make for an incredible equestrian ranch as well based on its size and topography.
The owners currently lease the ranch out to a local family who grows and cut hay for winter feed and also graze cattle on the property in late summer and fall.
There are 5 priority water rights attached to the property from five springs, known as Bailey #1. #2, #3, #4 & #5. Interested parties should check with the listing broker for additional details.
