Settler Valley Ranch
Dewey, Yavapai County

This is an attractive little ranch that is easily accessible from both Prescott and the Phoenix Metro area. Located in one of northern Arizona's most popular areas around Prescott, the ability to control four sections of ranchland is significant. Further, the ability to run either cattle and/or goats on Settler Valley Ranch quite certainly makes this one of the most attractive offerings in Arizona at the current time. Goats have seen increasing demand not only for meat and dairy production, but for reducing wildfire danger in wildland/urban interface areas.
