Diverse Hunting And Income Producing Farm For Sale


Located in the western part of the county is this well-diversified property that is sure to please most anyone. The property has access off of Knox highway 5 along the north side of the property. There is an excellent building site for a cabin or pole barn along the road on the northeast corner of the property. Head south along the east line, and you will come to a well-established trail system that will lead you along the east property line to a food plot then further south and west along a high ridge top overlooking the north tillable field. This trail continues southwest to a clover plot situated on the high ridge which has a great stand location that allows you to view the north tillable field, food plot, and south tillable field. One thing this property has no lack of is bedding habitat. There has been an extensive amount of timber stand improvement in various areas of the property, which has resulted in extremely thick bedding areas close to food. There is a small six-acre CRP field on the south end of the farm that is covered in deer sign and provides additional bedding along with a small food plot area on the east side. Brush Creek runs through and along the property and provides a year-round water source for wildlife. One thing that stood out about this farm was the high number of big rubs throughout the property that obviously were made by trophy class whitetails. There has also been a lot of dirt work and tile work along the east edge of the north tillable field to control water runoff and help with drainage. If you are in the market for an excellent hunting farm with a lot of potential, give us a call today for more info or to schedule a private showing.
