Ranch Description

Lazy J2 Ranch.

This is arguably the most beautiful ranch in Arizona in the most scenic location in the state. Covering 6,066 +/- acres in the heart of the spectacular San Rafael Valley in southeast Arizona. Ranches of this size are a very rare find in this valley. The Lazy J2 Ranch is a working cattle ranch with a carrying capacity of 200 head year round. The ranch consist of 954 +/- deeded acres with six large pastures, several smaller pastures and a charming ranch home. It also includes the 5,112 +/- acre A-Bar Draw Usfs allotment with five large pastures. The deeded and leased land is very well watered with multiple wells, tanks, water lines and fences are in very good condition.

Entering this very private, heavenly valley is a truly a breath taking event every time. The flowing grasslands surrounded by the blue and lavender mountains create a site that is easy to fall in love with. It lies between the Patagonia Mountains west, Huachuca Mountains east and the Canelo Hills north. The San Rafael is an uncommon, sequestered hidden valley unknown to many native Arizonans, yet is the location for over 50 feature films including Oklahoma. It is an extraordinarily unique piece of the American West, steeped in history as the western entry point for the Europeans into what is now the United States in 1539, to the Apaches and Buffalo Soldiers in the 1800'S. The San Rafael Valley has been a successful ranching landscape for generations of many families for hundreds of years.

Perfectly situated between 4,800 and 6,000 feet elevation, the climate is mild and pleasant year round. Temperatures range from the 80's to 90's in the summers and 50's to 60's in the winter. Annual rainfall is typically 17 to 20 inches. It is the one of the last intact short grass prairies left in the western United States. The headwaters of the Santa Cruz River originate in this valley and is adjacent to the ranch. The San Rafael and this ranch are blessed with a collection of gorgeous, sweeping rolling hills with a myriad of native grasses, scattered Oak trees and towering Cottonwoods in the meandering creek beds that run seasonally.

Eighty percent of the San Rafael Valley, including the Lazy J2 Ranch, have been placed under Conservation Easements by private property owners to protect the unparalleled beauty and pristine environment. The building envelopes have been discretely placed out-of-site to preserve the sweeping landscape vistas and magnificent view shed. There are two large building sites on the Lazy J2 of 17.8 acres and 20 acres. Underground power and telephone run through the valley and are available to both sites. The Conservation Easements are held by the Arizona Land and Water Trust.

This is an amazingly rare opportunity and maybe a once in a lifetime chance to own a part of this very special valley. Normally the ranches here are passed along by families from one generation to the next. Come and visit and see for yourself the remarkable property that is the Lazy J2 Ranch. The ranch is also available in two smaller offerings of 430 and 524 acre parcels with seller financing. Seller's successful San Rafael Valley Grass-Fed Beef business may also be available - call for details.
