Excellent Hunt Property + Plenty of Recreation!

This property consists of just about everything that defines “the country” and is a outdoor person's fantasy!

This farm was a cattle operation many years ago; a Mom and Dad raised a house full of kids here leaving the farm to the kids.  The kids are now older adults with kids and grand kids and the time has come to allow a new family to take over the rains of this farm.  There are endless possibilities; hunting, pasturing some cattle or horses, just enjoying the beautiful outdoors or a place to build a home in the country….It's all possible here!

First off the hunting….Quality Deer and a Quality area. Turkey, I’ve been to the farm 4  or 5 times and have seen or heard multiple gobblers every time. Waterfowl hunting is likely not “club” quality but plenty good enough to enjoy a couple hunts a week when the birds are here. There is ample room for a variety of food plots, really nice mature timber on the hills, 78 acres enrolled into WRP and shares a wetland with a neighboring landowner.  There are 2 previous drilled water wells located on the WRP easement; and although water doesn’t appear to be an issue, someone could may be use these wells to keep open water when the temperatures dip down below freezing. The WRP area that is not covered in water is a thick, very good deer bedding area.  The farm will hunt good!  There is an added bonus; many hunters build a cabin or buy a nice camper to use as a “cabin” , this property has the existing farm house located on the property.  It has not been lived in for some time; however' it is in great shape. And although we are not representing this as a residence, in very short order, it can be one heck of a cabin in the country!!  Rural water just down the road and a well out back for non drinking water.

There is about 30 acres of pasture area, some wooded and some with a nice green stand of grass.  Primarily electric fence at this time.  The creek provides year around water; however, there is a well if needed. An older corn crib and small shed is also on the property.  One acre is available to farm and had beans in it last year; would make a great country garden!!

The hills on this property are covered with huge oak trees and would make one of the most beautiful places for a log cabin or home with lots of windows.  The view is breathtaking!

Now, as I mentioned this farm is in the country, not like on the edge of town but truly in the country.  The area is largely ag fields and cattle pastures intermixed with woods and creek bottoms; its in an awesome area!

One more note for the hunters….this pasture area could really be developed into some great habitat and seriously you could have an easy 10 acres of food plots.  Turn the old farm house into the cabin and enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.
