Property Description

This Wilson County farm sits at the foot of the Kansas Flint Hills, and boasts a scenic 500 plus acres of clean native pastures atop timbered bluffs, over-looking the cool season bottoms of Crooked Creek. The terrain of the property nearly creates a bowl effect for seclusion and a beauty of its own. This farm has only changed hands once in the last 80 years and now it’s coming to the open market. Almost 70 acres could be put back into productive cultivation, laced with timbered draws and rolling meadows. The western bluff provides cedar thickets the length of the farm and into the oak bluffs along the southern end. The farm offers 7 ponds, with the terrain to increase or build bigger water. The rock out croppings reduce the number of entries into the bottoms, and in combination with the ponds, naturally create pinch points and ideal feeder/plot locations to optimize the hunting potential.

The grazing lease generates $12,ooo/year along with the 5 producing gas wells which currently are bringing $1100-$1200 per month. The 1720 square foot home is tucked with n its own bowl, with a view out across the valley. Water is supplied by a natural spring, from a cavern in the rock wall, behind the house. In addition to protection from natures elements, this home site is as unique as they come. The 3 bedrooms and 1 bath ranch style home, is in great condition. It is ideal for a low maintenance hunting cabin. If stepping foot on to this farm doesn't get you excited about enjoying God’s masterpieces, then I don't know what will! This farm includes all mineral rights and does generate income from 5 producing gas wells. The access thru the property is made simple with the gravel roads and paths throughout.

This farm has not seen a heavy hunting presence for many years, with only a handful of deer taken during the sellers 30 years of living here.. A very healthy turkey and deer population is in place and the neighborhood is working to improve the numbers and quality available. Wilson Co has produced great deer qualities as well as numbers and this ranch is sure to carry on that trend.
