Blacks Canyon Ranch

Blacks Canyon Ranch Cty Rd 82, Canby, CA 96015


One of California’s finest ranches; consisting of 9,000+/- acres of (mostly) contiguous fee title land, 77,000+/- acres USFS permits right out the back gate, and full water rights from Williams Reservoir & Duncan Reservoir. Not only is Blacks Canyon ranch a self sufficient 1,200 cow unit ranch, it also offers the best game hunting in the West. A very private and secluded piece of the world, you will feel like you’re a million miles away, yet the ranch is only 4 miles from the small rural community of Canby, and 25 miles from Alturas, the County Seat of Modoc County, California. Included with the ranch are two-private US Forest Service allotments encompassing 77,000+/- acres. The permits lie just out the back gate of the ranch, and are considered to be the best allotments in Devils Garden as they contain large marshes with surrounding wet meadows. The permits allow 1,200 pair running from May 15th to October 1st, a total of 5,500 AUMs. The calves are weaned mid October and average 575 lbs. coming right of the mother cow. Blacks Canyon Ranch has approximately 1,000 acres of irrigated ground: 720+/- acres flood irrigated meadows, and two center pivots covering 280+/- acres of grass. All of the irrigated land is in hay production, producing an average of 2,000+/- tons of hay annually. The water used for irrigation comes from Duncan and Williams Reservoirs owned by Blacks Canyon Ranch by Grant. These reservoirs are located above the ranch and gravity flow through the entire length of Blacks Canyon into storage ponds that supply the two center pivots. The ranch has senior water rights above all others. The power to the pumps for the center pivots is provided by Surprise Valley Electric (SVE), the most economical electricity provider in the Pacific Northwest. Improvements on the ranch: Four – 250 ton capacity hay barns, located around the ranch for easy access to store hay near feeding areas. The headquarters has a large multi-use barn, working corrals, covered cattle scales, covered hydraulic squeeze chute, loading chute ideally situated for easy side and rear loading, 30 foot X 70 foot steel shop with concrete floor, and additional miscellaneous out-buildings used for storage and equipment. The three-story main house consists of 7,000+/- sq.ft., 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, formal dining room, in kitchen dining area, and a spacious state of the art kitchen capable of providing meals for the entire ranch crew or a intimate gourmet meal. A covered patio, for eating outside in the summer is, adjacent to the kitchen. The walk-in refrigerator and walk-in freezer provide plenty of storage to support the ranch life style.
