Spring Valley Ranch
Spring Valley Ranch is truly phenomenal Throckmorton County land. The scattered ponds provide water throughout the acreage, while the "Heart" of this ranch is the unique oasis of spring-fed creeks running through the middle of the property. This unmatched portion of the North Elm Creek creates steller water features and provides a superior habitat for animals to thrive. The massive trees along the multiple creeks create ideal turkey roosts and areas of thick browse for the legendary white-tail roaming these parts. Native grasses throughout the ranch provide excellent grazing for cattle and superb nesting for the local quail coveys.
This rich, diverse landscape offers countless opportunities for recreational and agricultural activities. With over 10 miles of creek beds, this acreage has more to explore than most with extraordinary opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. The western pastures are moderately wooded with a surplus of grass, while large, bull mesquites and thick brush cover the eastern portion. Back off the beaten path is a small hunting camp with a metal building utilized as a "Mess Hall" outfitted with electricity, plumbing and a large awning with a couple of campers. This land has been cross-fenced into four pastures with a set of pipe-pens connected to each pasture and catch-trap near the highway to assist in working cattle. The thick, native grass comes from years of managing the brush and prickly pear to create the kind of substantial grass coverage that preserves the land for future herds. Spring Valley Ranch offers established grazing income for recreational hunters looking to purchase premium hunting land; this land is an investment protected by all of the owned minerals and executive leasing rights conveying with an acceptable contract. These are income producing minerals from an active well that has minimal impact on the land.
Spring Valley Ranch lies along the Great Western Trail, also known as the Fort Griffin Trail and the Dodge City Trail. A Historical Marker honors the path of the Great Western Trail along the boundary of this ranch and the highway. Many cattle ranches in the area where established by trading cattle from the passing herds on drives from Mexico to the northern markets in Kansas. Throckmorton still thrives on the local farming and ranching industry that was established by this trail so long ago.
