Hotchkiss, Colorado, and the North Fork Valley: The quiet lifestyle you’ve always dreamed about
Colorado real estate has a special appeal to buyers who are looking for the ultimate mountain lifestyle. Mountain views, cool-running streams, recreation, and nearby wilderness areas are common to many places in Colorado. The North Fork Valley, however, has a unique aspect to it that is especially attractive to people looking to relocate: it’s a wonderful place to grow something.
Colorado ranches, horse properties, and farms
The North Fork Valley is one of the few places in Colorado where ranchland is still affordable. The views are indeed fantastic,
but the land is productive as well. Large hay farms, ranches, and horse properties are blessed with lots of sunshine and good irrigation water to produce excellent hay crops and pasture for livestock.
Smaller ranchettes in the North Fork Valley are the perfect place to raise exotic animals such as alpacas, llamas, dairy and meat goats, elk, buffalo, and sheep.
Hunting, fishing, skiing, boating, recreation
The North Fork Valley is famous for its excellent elk and mule deer hunting. The West Elks Wilderness and the nearby Grand Mesa offer hundreds of thousands of acres of National Forest terrain for hunting, fishing, horseback riding and hiking. Crawford Mesa and Blue Mesa reservoirs are right up the road, and dozens of smaller creeks and lakes beckon the trout fisherman. World-class skiing in Aspen and Crested Butte is only two hours away.
A relaxed Colorado lifestyle
The North Fork Valley is the kind of place where the high school basketball game is a big Friday night event. The schools are renowned for producing top scholars and athletes, and life revolves around summer baseball, 4H clubs, and the county fair, where youngsters try to impress the judges with their steers, chickens, horsemanship photography, pigs, and lambs. Yet there’s
a decidedly non-traditional element as well, as the North Fork Valley is home to a new consciousness of solar and wind energy research, alternative lifestyles, organic foods, music, yoga, pilates, artists, and straw bale houses.
The North Fork Valley is a great place to live! If you’re looking for a Colorado

recreation property, orchard, vineyard, hunting property, hobby farm, resort, or
