Acreage: 65
County: Franklin
State: Kansas

Property Description

This prime tillable tract is located conveniently on K-68 Highway just 1 mile west of Ottawa city limits. Nestled between the Marais Des Cygnes River and Island Creek, once known as Mud Creek, this 65 +/- acre tract is the cream of the crop of fertile creek bottom soils.

Class II and Class III soils of Verdigris and Osage make up the foundation for a healthy crop for above average yields. 57 acres are FSA reported tillable cropland with 8 acres of timber and creek. The long time tenant has been farming the land for just about the lifetime the family has owned the tract so knows it like the back of a book and has been a solid producer. The seller and tenant have operated with a 1/3-2/3 crop share. The new owner would have the 2020 farming rights to allow one to self farm or have a tenant in place if contracted prior to February 28, 2020.

What a perfect tract to add to an existing operation or a manageable tract for someone starting. This 65 acre is a cut and dry tract, tried and true solid producer for the selling family for 71 years now and is a tract that one might only have one shot at owning!
