Cedar Point Ranch is located just minutes outside of the charming town of Mancos, Colorado.

The over 40 acres of lush, irrigated fields offer two cuttings a year and roughly 2-3 tons of hay to the acre. The elk ranch is mainly irrigated by side rolls making for the highly productive ground being sustainable for up to 55 elk.
