With its tremendous combination of wind lease income, farm & pasture land rent, and ideal hunting habitat, the Twin Mounds Ranch in Southern Lincoln/Northern Ellsworth County, KS has several excellent qualities that lead to a great long-term investment over the next several years. Just 26 miles West of Salina, KS, this 900+ acre ranch consists of beautiful rolling grassland, fertile cropland acres, and rugged brushy bottoms and multiple ponds that provide excellent habitat for whitetail deer, upland game, and waterfowl. This ranch provides solid income return with a long-term wind energy lease and annual cash rent from farmland and pasture tenants. The historical limestone house and farmstead were established in the late 1800s and provide some amazing character to the ranch. The home has been well-maintained and provides suitable accommodations for extended visits to the ranch. The access to the ranch from a nearby I-70 exit also provides another level of convenience that is complimentary of the location.
A long-term wind energy lease, extending thru 2040, has produced approximately $80,000 annually to the current landowners. All wind rights and royalties will transfer to the purchaser of the ranch. The ranch is currently under a farm and pasture lease providing additional income from the land, with good trustworthy stewards already in place. Contact the listing agents for more info regarding the leases!
This area is very reputable for trophy whitetail deer hunting, good waterfowl populations, and excellent upland opportunities as well. This ranch is highlighted by multiple areas consisting of ideal deer and upland hunting opportunities. Elkhorn Creek runs through the neighboring properties to the West, and this property benefits greatly from this. Several whitetail deer inhabit this property and excellent deer sign can be found throughout. The 80 acre parcel lying South of Interstate 70 (in Ellsworth County) is characterized by deep timbered cuts and a small pond. This appears to be prime habitat for holding a trophy Kansas whitetail buck. All of the ponds on the ranch have been loaded with both ducks and geese upon each visit. The largest pond site covers over 5 acres of surface water and has the potential to be developed and hunted for waterfowl.
The ranch consists of over 649 acres of fenced grassland with good grass and fence, reliable water sources, and nice areas for backgrounding cattle with convenient access. There are 243 acres of cropland consisting of 98% Class II and III silt loam soils. The farmland soils carry an average NCCPI soil rating of 68.30, which is very solid for the area. Whether you plan to continue renting the agriculture acres to a tenant or choose to take on the ag operator role yourself, this ranch has very productive acres and improvements to work with.
