Water: Ranch owners have direct access to northern Arizona’s largest underground water basin, the massive Coconino Sandstone Aquifer, which produces a dependable supply of water for both domestic and irrigation uses. Additional water is available within a second overlying aquifer, the Bidahochi Aquifer, which also provides domestic quality water at affordable drilling depths. In addition, Sierra Highlands property owners have free access to the ranch’s new convenience well. The well is powered by a state of the art solar pump system and is available to owners 24/7.
Soil: This region of northeastern Arizona enjoys some of the finest sandy loam soils found anywhere in the state. Area growers harvest a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and grains including apples, peaches, pears, tomatoes, corn, peppers, potatoes, winter wheat and alfalfa.
