Multi-Use Hunting And Tillable Farm With Big Bureau Creek Frontage


You can literally pick your passion with this gem that sits just southwest of Princeton. Productive farmland and development possibilities are here for the investor, but for the outdoor enthusiast, this is a must-see. The place carries aesthetics that remind me of a state park. Hardwood ridges with breathtaking views overlook the fertile bottomland. The gorgeous Big Bureau Creek runs along the west side of the property with several points of access that provide amazing fishing, kayaking, swimming and canoeing. There is even an established camping area that would provide lifetime memories. Whether you prefer to hike, ride horseback, bicycle or ATV,  the well-groomed trails that wind throughout the property are sure to impress. The words “beautifully rugged” come to mind while touring this farm. The pictures do no justice to the size of the trees nor the overall maintenance that this place has received.  And for the hunter, deer, turkeys and small game are abundant. The deer sign is everywhere, with many big rubs and scrapes. Tracks and droppings litter the ground. Take a trip down one of the many south-facing slopes and you will find multiple deer beds. The hardwoods contain many flats and ravines, while there are still several thicker areas for the deer. A secluded 9-acre hayfield lays to the northern portion of the woods. This could provide additional income or serve as a large destination food plot. Several hidey-hole food plot areas are also scattered throughout the timberland. The southwestern portion of the property contains thick bottomland and has several oxbow-style wetlands that look great for duck hunting. Much of the tillable would likely qualify for the CRP programs if someone wanted to expand the hunting opportunities. There is a 40’ x 60’ shed on the property that would serve to store equipment or even be converted to a  base camp. Call us today for your private showing!
