The Redden Ranch is a sustainable mountain ranching operation with free water flowing from the mountains every year together with high mountain pasture to graze cattle on nature's nutritious grasses every summer. Redden Ranch represents a 'drought proof', fourth generation cattle ranching operation that has sustained the family for 70+ years. The home ranch consists of nearly 1, 000 acres of deeded land located in the Ohio Creek Valley apx 8 miles north of downtown Gunnison. The ranch holds a 345 head grazing allotment at the headwaters of Carbon Creek. Livestock are trailed seasonally from the home ranch to the grazing allotment. During that time, the meadows are irrigated from excellent priority water rights and hay is harvested to sustain the herd during the winter months. Cattle return from the mountain pasture to graze the aftermath in the hay meadows at which time the calves are weaned to complete the harvest of some of America's best grade beef. Generations of ranch families still exist in the scenic Gunnison Country and owning a ranch here allows one to be with nature year-round. Gunnison County is a Mecca for the outdoorsman where recreation abounds with good access to hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking and horseback riding to name a few of the favorite activities. The Redden Ranch has a unique location with apx 3 miles of USNF adjoining their ranch twp [arce;s. tje Jeadqiarters [arce; 9507/87 acres) and the North Home Ranch parcel 9480 acres. The Headquarters parcel includes about 280 acres of irrigated lands from which produces apx 2 Tonper acre of native mountain hay. The meadows produce Timothy, clover, wheatgrass and fescues while the upland grazing consists of various wheatgrass, fescue and buffalo grass intermixed with sagebrush. The deeded lands are fenced into multiple pastures and are in excellent condition. The Gunnison National Forest Allotment authorizes use from June 15 to October 7 and is known as the Castleton Allotment. It was renewed in 2017 for 10 more years. The mountain forest permit Allotment consists of 11 pastures and a reverse rotational use provides the successive use from year to year. The range improvements on the grazing allotment are extensive with about 20 miles of fence, 16 springs an 13 ponds.
