Property: Long View Farm Open Space
Priority Area: Fort Collins / Loveland Corridor
Size: 599.4 acres
Long View Farm is jointly owned by Larimer County and the Cities of Loveland and Fort Collins. It is managed by Larimer County, and is a working agricultural operation, leased for dryland farming. Consequently it is not open to the public at this time. It was protected to preserve the agricultural character of the area as well as to provide an undeveloped visual open space between the two cities. Wheat farming has long been an indispensable part of the agricultural history of Larimer County.
