Combination Farm With Income And Hunting for Sale Near Higbee


This rural property offers a mixture of timber and CRP with a creek cutting through the beautiful rolling terrain. The entrance to this property lies down a quiet county road less than a mile from State Highway A. The property is full of deer and turkey sign and upon my initial viewing of the property, I bumped two very nice trophy bucks with a group of does. The owner’s brother tells me he and a few close friends that are avid quail hunters have seen several coveys of quail on this and surrounding the properties. A beautiful rock bottom creek winds through this property providing a great water source for wildlife. There are several nice open areas throughout that would make excellent food plots and are hidden between the timber edges. These are great places to entice those bucks during daylight hours or ambush a strutting Tom during the spring turkey season. This area is rich in history, I am told this property was once part of SMITHLAND. SMITHLAND was a 2,000-acre farm extending from Tregnago farm south to and including Gruber-Thomas farm and continuing in a westerly direction to the vicinity of Roanoke. It was Joel Smith’s farm, and he called the entire area SMITHLAND. In the early days, the settlement that grew up near the “big house,” the family home of Joel Smith, became a stagecoach stop between Hannibal and Rocheport. The village was located ½ mile southeast of the present Tregnago farm home. The village consists of a post office, small inn, blacksmith shop, general store and tavern. There was a ½ mile racetrack where the Ute and Crete Indians raced their ponies on Sunday afternoons. You can still see the roadbed where the old stagecoach road ran through the property. This tract of land has approximately 65 acres of timber and 36 acres of open ground with 22.35 acres of the open ground enrolled in CRP paying $2,342 annually and expires 9-30-22. If you are looking for a great recreational property or just a rural property to build on, give me a call.
