BIRCH SPRINGS RANCH | Sold
- 781± Deeded Acres
- Minutes from Wyoming's Flaming Gorge Reservoir
The Birch Springs Ranch, located on Utah Highway 43, is about 2½ miles west of Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and the town of Manila, the County seat of Daggett County.
Seventeen years ago, in 1996, Robin May, an entrepreneur from Rock Springs, Wyoming purchased the 385-acre Birch Springs Ranch. Several years later he purchased the adjacent Ranch consisting of about 396 acres, creating the current 781± deeded acres.
Over the years Mr. May significantly improved both properties in many ways. Perhaps the most significant improvement was converting all of the flood irrigation to more efficient gravity-pressurized wheel-line sprinklers. In addition, he added a solid one-bedroom home with a loft along with a modern shop, a large spring-irrigated garden and small orchard.
Interior roadways and cross fences were improved and over twenty tons of accumulated scrap and dilapidated structures were removed.
Now retired and ready to scale back, Mr. May has made the decision to sell all or part of the Ranch.
