Property Description
There are no building improvements on the property. The farm has not actively been farmed in over 10 years, although irrigation water has been flooded over the native pasture grasses and grazed with livestock. There are numerous elm and juniper trees scattered across the field. The irrigation ditch runs along the southern boundary (4th street) and has two turn-outs to the field. The farm has no concrete ditches and has been leveled by hand many years ago. The entire perimeter is fenced with 4 strands of barbed wire on both metal and wooden posts.

Elevation on the property ranges from 7,110 to 7,140 with the irrigation water running from south to north across the length of the farm.

Irrigation water is provided by the Pioneer Irrigation Company which serves the majority of Springerville and Eagar. The property has 550 shares of Pioneer Irrigation Company which provides approximately 11 hours of water per turn. The number of turns varies depending on the available water storage in the reservoirs. Turns begin on April 15th of each year and come every 7 to 10 days. Depending on the reservoir storage the farm may receive anywhere from 2 to 10 turns of water in a growing season.

Domestic water is available and currently in use on the property. There is a city water hook-up and meter in use on the western boundary of the farm near the central north/south line. Currently the water is piped approximately 20 feet to a tire drinker and utilized for livestock only.
