Located in one of the most scenic areas of southern Colorado is the 6,300± deeded acre Moonshine Ranch. Famously named after historical accounts of Al Capone’s days of bootlegging moonshine, the remnants of a turn of the century moonshine still remains on the ranch today. Most noted for its prolific rock upheavals and massive vertical dikes caused by thousands of years of plate tectonics, the incredibly charming town of La Veta is just 30 minutes from the ranch. Moonshine Ranch is a recreational paradise, remote – yet accessible, offering seclusion and privacy while being completely immersed in a true wilderness setting and home to abundant wildlife. The ranch landlocks 3,400± acres of BLM land increasing its total size to just under 10,000 total acres. Recognized for its exceptional wildlife habitat, natural ecosystem, shielding topography, and excellent management, the ranch is one of the finest big game hunting properties in the Western US. Improvements are not overdone, functional, and include a primary lodge, caretaker home, shop, cabin, and livestock facilities. This property offers a little bit of everything; rugged and undulating topography, water rights and irrigated land, several water catchments including ponds, dirt tanks and small lakes, numerous springs and seasonal creeks, a variety of vegetation, diverse landscape, extraordinary views, absolute privacy, and presents an opportunity to acquire a significantly sized ranch for the area. Important to note approximately 60-70 percent of the ranch was unfortunately burned in the 2018 Spring Creek Fire. The owner has invested over a million dollars in reclamation efforts including hiring a professional-grade fire restoration team, aerial and terrestrial seeding, mulching, refurbished roads, new culverts, and has implemented many other mitigation efforts to reestablish vegetation growth for wildlife. Additionally, the asking price of the ranch has been substantially reduced to its current asking price to reflect fire damage.
