General Description

The Red Rock Valley Ranch is a working cattle and hay ranch located in northern California's scenic Siskiyou County.   The ranch features multiple parcels, 2 residences, irrigated pastures, grassland rangeland, juniper and pine rangeland,  privacy and spectacular panoramic views of the Red Rock valley, Mt. Shasta and the surrounding mountains.


The acreage consists of approximately 1310 deeded acres.  The total acreage consists of 7 adjacent county assessor parcels ranging in size from 13.2 acres to 240.3 acres.                                                                                                                Approximately 200 acres are currently irrigated with another 42 acres that can be irrigated.  The irrigated acreage is currently planted to orchard grass, which makes excellent feed and hay. There are about 900 acres of juniper and pine rangeland and another 175 acres of grassland range. The balance of the acreage is in improvements. 

The ranch is generally surrounded by neighboring large ranches.  However, to the north, the ranch backs up to thousands of acres of federal BLM land.


The Red Rock Valley Ranch has a residence and a building pad ready for another home.  The residence and building pad are each located on separate adjacent assessor parcels.  In addition to both having terrific views of the valley and surrounding mountains, each is on a separate domestic well, septic and power meter.

The primary residence is a Palm Harbor triple wide with approximately 1800+ sq ft with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.  The owners bought it new in 2000. The residence includes an attached double car finished garage.


The ranch has a large 4,000 square foot pole barn that is currently rented for $2,500 a year.

 Irrigation Water

Irrigation water to the ranch is supplied by an agriculture irrigation well.  The irrigation well can produce approximately 2000 GPM.  However, it is currently set to produce 950 GPM with 70 pounds of pressure for drip irrigation. There are three pivot irrigation systems that irrigate approximately 200 acres.  The irrigation well can operate 2 of the 3 pivots simultaneously. Additional acreage can be developed for irrigation.


The ranch has 2 domestic wells, 1 agriculture irrigation well and one solar powered stock well.

 Potential Uses

The Red Rock Valley Ranch would be ideal for someone wanting to own an income producing ranch or farm in a very scenic and rural area.  Present income includes $48,000 annually from a cattle lease and $2,500/yr for hay storage rent.  Past income has included leasing 60-70 acres for strawberry plants which generated $500/ac per season; Alfalfa and grain production which historically yielded 6 tons/ac per season.  Also, a second home can be placed on the building pad for additional rental income.  In addition, there is approximately 100,000 board feet of timber that is ready to be marketed.


The topography of the ranch can be characterized as gentle sloping to level with elevation ranging from approximately 4330' to 4590'.

 Cattle Lease

The ranch currently has a cattle lease for the acreage.  The lease generates $48,000 of income for the owner.  There is approximately 5 years remaining on the lease which a new owner can assume.

 Hunting Lease

Currently there is no hunting lease on the ranch.  However, the ranch is permitted 2 owner hunting tags for the acreage.


The ranch is located near historical Butte Valley in northern California's scenic Siskiyou County and just south of the Oregon border.  Approximately  8 miles southeast of the small town of Macdoel, the ranch is easily accessed by well maintained paved county roads.


The area has over 50 species of mammals including antelope, elk, deer and bear.  In addition there are 200 species of birds including ducks and geese and a variety of fish including rainbow and brown trout, catfish and bass.
