Property ID: 11393392
Type: Farms, Ranches, Undeveloped Land
Address: Lot 250
Directions: Using google maps, search "Utah OSR Land Co-op" and follow the directions. Generally takes 2 hours from Utah County. If using google maps (and not your car's GPS), be sure not to click away from it, as you will likely not recover the directions (because the cell service is spotty).
- Bring water, a hat, and sunscreen if you need it.
- Ignore the fact that our current mailing address shows "Nephi, Utah" -- that's just because we don't have our own post office, yet.
- Unless you have off-road tires, best not to drive over 40 mph on the gravel roads.
- Watch out for sheep, cattle, and antelope.
- Unless you are an adrenalin junky, slow down on the curves on the gravel roads.
- You'd be wise to bring a spare tire and jack. Make sure you have the right socket wrench.
- We do tours on Saturday, contact Jesse for a link where to register.

Description: About the Land
The lots at Riverbed Ranch homesteading community range from 2.0 to 3.9 acres. Each lot comes with 6 acre-feet of water rights (that's 1,995,106 gallons of water a year).
Riverbed Ranch is nestled between the Keg Mountain and Simpson Mountain ranges, is about a half mile wide and 3 miles long. Seventy of the 250 lots are spoken for as of 6/30/21, with about 1 being claimed each week. A local well-driller has given the co-op a good deal on drilling wells for residents. The land has been successfully farmed since at least the 1950s, and likely earlier than that. The land happily grows garden veggies, and is well-known for the high-quality alfalfa it can produce.
For those wanting access to more land, all that is required of a shareholder (or group of shareholders) to use some of the additional 500 acres of farmland is to submit a simple business plan to the co-op board. That plan would need to outline how much land was needed, the preferred location, how much water, and a dissolution clause (we want to all end up friends if any such project were to fail). The plan would also need to outline how the shareholder(s) would benefit and how the co-op would benefit from the use of the additional acreage.
There are no CC&Rs and no plans for an HOA (most of us would resist one ever being formed).
Each shareholder, however, agrees to build the following within 2 to 3 years:
1. A passive solar home, of at least 600 square feet, that requires little or no energy to heat or cool. We recommend at least 800 square feet of living space.
2. Shop or Barn for animals and/or storage (no minimum size)
3. Greenhouse, minimum 600 square feet, 1,200 recommended.
5. 6" well with 2 horse power pump with 400' of lift.
6. Approved sanitation system.
Our current shareholders value this agricultural cooperative as an ideal opportunity to enjoy:
Self-Sufficiency - Providing for their family's essential needs without having to rely on markets or the government for food, water, power or sanitation.
Family - Insulating their children from unwanted influences in our cities, and providing them a more carefree rural lifestyle, where they can learn to work.
Safety - A place of safety for their families, from things either now or in the future, and
Heath - The health benefits of growing your own more-nutritious, non-GMO food untainted by pesticides and herbicides.
A share in the Utah OSR Land Cooperative gives you these benefits:
1. A cooperative's equivalent of a title to 2 acres at the Riverbed Ranch farm-steading community
(it's called a proprietary occupancy agreement and can be bought and sold).
2. Two and a half acre-feet of water rights (that's 814,627 gallons of well water a year),
3. A vote in the cooperative,
4. Opportunity for group purchases of products and services needed to build your homestead.
5. Opportunity to sell your products and services through the co-op,
6. First stab at job openings within the cooperative, and
7. The opportunity to spearhead the creation of sub-cooperatives to provide jobs and goods and services to the co-op members and/or outside customers.
The Utah OSR Land Cooperative's Riverbed Ranch farm-steading community will feature:
- High-speed satellite Internet through Skylink or Hughesnet,
- A K-12 school, and other community services (listed below).
- A future BMX bicycle course for kids to enjoy,
- A greenbelt area running up the middle of the community, including a hiking trail, honeybee-friendly trees and bushes, a road, and maybe someday, a creek.
- An RV and camping park. This way, shareholders who so choose can live in the RV park while building out their homestead. And later, guests can stay and enjoy the community.
- Co-op store for importing and exporting goods and produce.
Additional Planned Community Services
Similar to an industrial park, the Utah OSR Land Cooperative has set aside 45 acres for the following privately owned and operated services (which will likely all be staffed by local residents):
1. Academy of Self-Reliance higher-learning campus, including a ropes course.
2. The OSR K-12 campus,
3. Assisted Living / Retirement Home
4. Whole Health / Life Coach clinic
5. Child Rescue Home (Fresh Start program)
6. Young Mothers Home
7. Equine / Canine Therapy Barn
