Productive Northern New Mexico Grass Ranch
The 3,904 total acre Holkeo Creek Ranch (3,024 deeded acres and 880 state lease acres) is a productive grass ranch located near Point of Rocks Landmark, a promontory along the historic Santa Fe National Historic Trail that guided early settlers to the area. Holkeo Creek Ranch is in northeastern New Mexico about 50 miles southeast of Raton, 35 miles east of Springer and 46 miles west of Clayton. Rare live water known as Holkeo Creek traverses a portion of the ranch supplying water for livestock and wildlife. The ranch is capable of running 200 yearlings or 100 cow/calf pair depending on the moisture conditions. The property is fenced and cross-fenced with working corrals, an older homestead site surrounded by cottonwood and aspen trees, and an older sheep pen made out of rock – all adding historical significance to this spectacular ranch. A ranch house sits on Springer Highway to the south. Located next to a portion of the legendary T O Ranch (established in 1864) and near the Gladstone Mercantile/Grocery Store, Holkeo Creek Ranch is the ideal ranch for anyone looking for high protein grassland and the hunting and recreational opportunities this area provides.
