74,000-Acre Alamo Ranch Comes to Market
Hall and Hall has listed the King Brothers’ Alamo Ranch for $33 million. The working cattle ranch, which is located in Sandoval County northwest of Albuquerque, borders Zia Pueblo to the north and Laguna Pueblo to the west and south. Rio Puerco, a tributary of the Rio Grande, marks the ranch’s western boundary. One of New Mexico’s fastest-growing cities, Rio Rancho, is minutes from the southeast property line. The Alamo Ranch was purchased in 1961 by former Gov. Bruce King and his brothers. It encompasses 60,000 deeded acres and 14,000 leased acres and consists of rolling grassy hills, sandstone bluffs, canyons, and mesas. The ranch is located in Game Management Unit 9, which is known for trophy-size elk with Boone and Crockett scores in the high 300s. Other wildlife includes mule deer, pronghorn antelope, quail, Barbary sheep, and mountain lions. “I think the family just feels it’s a good time to sell, given the ranch market,” Hall and Hall’s Jeff Buerger told the Rio Rancho Observer.
