Rec And Hunting Farm With Timber Value Near Fairfield


Nice recreational farm with a building site on a paved road less than 5 minutes from Fairfield! Properties with building sites this nice on paved roads are rare. This timber has been used for pasture in the past but has numerous areas that could immediately be planted into food plots. Based on the sign, there are lots of deer currently living on the property and from the size of the rubs, there are multiple mature bucks using it. If you wanted, these existing openings could be expanded into larger fields. It wouldn’t be hard to create 5-10 acres of fields/food plots by expanding the fields that are already there. The timber is a mixture of white oak, red oak, hickory, and walnut with nice terrain! There is mature oak, hickory, and walnut that could be select cut if income was desired. A great trail system is already in place for accessing different parts of the property with a four-wheeler or UTV.  There are a couple of nice building sites for ponds, including right by the road where the best home building site is located. An additional bonus with this property is that there is a “no hunting” public property bordering its west side. Zillman’s Hickory Hills is operated by the Jefferson County Conservation Board and is primarily planted to tall native grasses but will definitely hold deer and turkeys. The Fairfield area is well known for producing big bucks and this property should certainly do so for the new owners. Call the listing agent with questions or to schedule a showing.
