To support conservation of Hannratty Farms, as a part of the Gates Family Foundation’s Southeast Colorado Focus Landscape initiative.
Located in eastern Pueblo County’s prime vegetable production area, the three parcels of farmland include ownership of 185 shares of the Bessemer Ditch Company that will be encumbered through the conservation easement. Recognizing the importance of alternative transfer mechanisms as a tool for alleviating Colorado’s water supply gap, temporary use of water rights will be allowed in the easement, such as temporary municipal leases.
