Ute Mountain Ute Tribe Farm & Ranch Enterprise

is a 7,700 acre productive, modern irrigated agricultural project nestled below the Sleeping Ute Mountain on Ute Mountain Ute Tribe Land in the southwest corner of Colorado. State of the art equipment and modern technology are used to successfully operate this market-oriented agricultural enterprise.

At the base of the legendary Sleeping Ute Mountain, between the Four Corners National Monument and Mesa Verde National Park lies a beautiful reservation known as the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe.

In the desert lies a 7,700 acre irrigated farm owned and operated by the tribe. Established in 1962, the Bow and Arrow Brand now proudly produces safe, quality products to feed the family that you love.

As good stewards of the land, we practice sustainable farming and use state of the art technology to grow and mill our corn without GMOs. We raise cattle, alfalfa, and more.

Irrigation

Ute Mountain Farm & Ranch’s source of irrigation water is the McPhee reservoir, Colorado’s second largest man- made reservoir. Irrigation water travels 40 + miles in open canals and through siphons to reach the Farm. It then is guided through underground laterals to a total of 109 pivot sprinklers.

Because of the elevation difference between the canal and the fields, pressure is developed as it travels to the fields enabling the use of pivot sprinklers. Modern technology enables us to monitor all irrigation systems by use of computers and cell phones in real time. Water in the southwest is a precious commodity and the efficient use of this resource is of top priority.
