Established Cattle Farm Near Cave-In-Rock, Illinois

Description

Affordable, manageable, and located in a great spot! This property is an established cattle farm with everything needed for a small herd of cattle or to set up your own hobby farm. Plus, it’s near the Shawnee National Forrest, the Garden of the Gods, and only a few minutes away from the ferry that can get you to Kentucky. An older home on the farm has county water and electric. There’s a barn, several sheds, pasture with fencing and cross-fencing, plenty of hardwoods and multiple gated entrances. The home and pasture sit on gently rolling topography with scattered timber and brush. The pasture is segregated into several smaller fields with fencing and cross-fencing to separate cattle or offset grazing pressure. A pond is centrally located in the pasture and provides an ample supply of water for cattle. A barn and several sheds provide storage for hay and equipment. The topography gets slightly steeper as you move into the timbered area of the property. The timber is a healthy stand of softwoods and mast producing hardwoods that provide livestock with plenty of shade and cover from the elements. Wildlife is abundant on the property providing ample opportunities for deer and turkey hunting. There are several areas that would lend well to wildlife habitat improvements as well as travel corridors and ambush sites.
