Majors Ranch has numerous large acreage parcels with a terrain slightly more arid than the Cuchara Valley. Originally the land was an over 22,000 acre working cattle ranch which was split in the 1990's into 172 parcels of 40 acres to over 300 acres each. Parcel boundaries were established by using ridgelines and natural features of the land instead of the traditional rectangles, giving Majors Ranch an intriguing setting and ensuring each parcel has its own unique personality.
All of the MR subdivision is zoned agricultural.
Some of the properties are taxed at the residential rate when there is a residence, rather than as vacant land or agricultural land.
There is no requirement that any lot become residential.
