CRP Combination Farm With Upland Hunting And Off-Grid Cabin



If you love to hear the cackle of a rooster as he busts out of the cover or if you get up early in anticipation for your dog’s first point of the day, you need to check this farm out! This farm has exceptional wild pheasant and bobwhite quail hunting opportunities due to almost 85 acres of well-established and highly maintained CRP. The warm-season grasses also provide cover and habitat to a solid population of deer and wild turkey, adding to the recreational opportunities and further extending your hunting season. A custom-built cabin overlooks a small stocked pond nestled in the timber in the northeast corner of the farm. The cabin is extremely private and provides great views as well as a place to stay for those hunting trip getaways or a great weekend with your family. The off-grid cabin utilizes solar panels and low voltage LED lights, a propane stove/oven combo for cooking, and a wood-burning stove for heat. This combination makes for a comfortable four-season cabin no matter what time of year. To find out more information about this stunning recreational property, call the Land Specialist and Listing Agent. Showings by appointment only.
