ST DAVID, AZ - Located in the heart of St. David, Arizona is the Bar LR Ranch. Perfectly situated with highway access and river views this sale is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Owners Robin and Linda Richey both grew up on family farms and thoroughly enjoyed the past 20 years at the Bar LR Ranch. “The decision to sell the property was not easy for us,” Linda said. “We have four children, and several grandchildren but they’re not interested in raising cattle or farming, so we must move on to greener pastures." When the Richey's first purchased their property in St. David, they started with five acres. As adjacent properties came up for sale, they purchased the additional properties, growing the ranch to its current 120 +/-Acres which will be auctioned off in a multi-parcel format on April 22, 2017 at 10:00am. 

Historically run as farmland, some of the pecan trees on property were planted in 1929. The Richey's ran between 30-40 registered Angus mother cows, producing top notch bulls. Through their 16 years in the cattle business, the Richeys bred for calving-ease along with docility and produced high value breeding stock. In 2015, Bar LR Angus had the top selling bull at the “Bulls for the 21st Century Bull Test and Sale,” as well as the top selling and highest grading Angus bull at the Willcox Livestock Auction Annual Bull Sale. The ranch also produced the grand champion bull at the Willcox Livestock Auction annual bull sale in March 2016. 

If you are not familiar with Southeastern Arizona, it has plenty of history and amenities. The property is close to several ghost towns and only 18 miles from The Town Too Tough To Die, Tombstone, Arizona; where the famous shootout with Wyatt Earp happened in 1881. Other historical towns nearby like; Bisbee, Douglas, and Willcox are quick day trips from the ranch, offer unique yearly festivals and draw tourists from around the world all season long. Explore the great outdoors with Kartchner Caverns State Park, the Huachuca Mountains, Cochise Stronghold and Cornado National Forest nearby.  Most residents enjoy the relaxed, rural lifestyle of St. David, however there are several cities close by. Benson, Sierra Vista and Tucson are all within 50 miles and offer all the benefits of city life. Working or playing outdoors is easy in Arizona's mild climate. On average, there are 279 sunny days in St. David, AZ with around 13" of rain per year at an elevation of 3,691ft. Pretty spectacular! 

If you haven't already, we invite you to fall in love with the west and take a closer look at the Bar LR Ranch. The seven parcels put forward are all unique and offer the new owner endless possibilities. Host family and friends in a large main home with 5,038 +/- s.f. under roof. Generate income from your own private pecan orchard and nearly 50 acres of pastures irrigated from multiple shallow wells, develop the property into an equine training facility, run a small herd, plant a crop, or keep it as a quiet private retreat. This versatile property also has a 4,000 +/- s.f. steel building, two potential rental homes, property for future development and plenty of water all in a beautifully treed, quiet rural town setting.

Comments From Our Clients

  • Paul Ramirez was our auctioneer for the Tucson Wildlife Center "Rejoice Dinner" fund raiser in Jan 2012. We were very fortunate to have Paul as he significantly increased our auction proceeds far above expectations. He is a very creative auctioneer and suggested several unique ways to present our candidate offerings. Paul is engaging and knows how to motivate potential bidders. His enthusiasm and humor energizes the audience. Because of Paul's excellent presentation of our auction items we believe we achieved about three times the revenue that we had anticipated. All of the attendees enjoyed the auction as the highlight of the evening. We were so pleased that we have scheduled Paul again for our 2013 event.
    M. Lisa Bates, MS, Executive Director, Tucson Wildlife Center, Inc.

  • Paul Ramirez and the Charity Auction Team are TROT's "secret weapon" when it comes to our event fundraising efforts! Paul's professional expertise, his auction style, and his rapport with the crowd are a perfect fit for our organization - his auctions are fun and produce fabulous results for our charity. Paul knows his business and willingly shares ideas to help us maximize the proceeds from our events. Many children with special needs from the Tucson community have directly benefited from the funds raised by Ramirez Auction Services and we are grateful for their supportive, professional assistance. I highly recommend the Ramirez Auction Services to any nonprofit organization that wants a good outcome at their events!
    Leslie Esselburn, Executive Director Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT)

  • Paul has been auctioneer several times when I have donated a large original painting to a charity event. No one does a better job auctioning my work then he does. Paul does his homework, knows his audience, has good knowledge of the items he's auctioning, and says just the right thing to elicit the highest bid. I am always thrilled when I see he is the auctioneer.
    Diana Madaras, Madaras Gallery
