Property Description

Located in northeast Ellis County, Kansas, this 485 +/- acre farm is the perfect addition to your farming and cattle operation. The tillable portion of this farm is approximately 160 +/- acres and is comprised primarily of highly productive Class II Harney Silt Loams. The remaining 325 +/- acres of pasture are beautiful rolling hills with a mixture of gorgeous native grasses. This parcel has been in the same family for many years and has been well maintained and cared for. The pride of ownership shines through with how clean the pasture grasses are and how well all of the fencing, gates, corrals, and roads have been maintained. It is truly something you’ll need to see in person as it will not disappoint!

Water is strategically located across the property. At the northeast entrance off 370th Avenue, just south of the intersection with Homestead Road, there is a rural water meter and a plumbed, steel pipe-protected water hydrant, and a location for a stock tank. In the center of the 2 north quarters lies a 1.5 acre pond that is fed by multiple drainages from across the property. On the northwest side of the property is Sweetwater Creek which is livestock accessible. On the west side of the property, next to a corral and catch pen configuration, is a water well that can be used for additional water when needed.

This farm was hit by the wildfire that went through the area in December of 2021. Having a new fence from 4 years prior, it is in very good shape with damage only to the wood posts in a few areas. Plans are in place and work will begin soon for a complete fence repair. This work will be cost-shared by the NRCS and this program is transferable to the new owner should a purchase be made before or during the timeframe of the project.

For wildlife lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, Sweetwater Creek crosses this property on the western edge of the northwest quarter. Due to the rolling terrain, this area is not visible from either of the 2 closest roads that are each a mile away. This low-lying area is a wildlife sanctuary just waiting for someone to come in and groom it for that purpose. Having live water in Sweetwater Creek and rich Class II and III soils from years of runoff and topsoil deposits, there are potential food plot locations all up and down both sides of the creek!

If you’re looking for a place to start an operation of your own or to just have a beautiful, quiet, tranquil location away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world, this property is the one for you! Rolling hills with incredible elevated views, rural water meter in place on the northeast corner of the property, electricity a few hundred feet away at the intersection of 370th Avenue and Homestead Road, 160 +/- acres of tillable ground, 325 +/- acres of pasture, 1.5 acre pond and a secluded wildlife sanctuary to enjoy the pursuit of wild game, all in one setting!
