Property Description

Located in southeast Saline County, Kansas, this 143 +/- acre farm is the perfect investment playground for the avid outdoorsman! Rolling terrain, timbered grass waterways, rich bottom ground covered in alfalfa, a seasonal pond, and a creek with tall, thick, mature timber, this one has it all! Located 3 miles southwest of Gypsum, Kansas, this property has just over 110 acres of tillable ground of which 20 acres is bottom ground just replanted to a fresh alfalfa crop. The rest of the property is lush grass waterways with timber scattered throughout, thick pockets of timber, tree rows, and gorgeous mature timber all up and down Spring Creek. An abandoned railroad right-of-way splits the property and makes for easy access to food plots, feeders, trail cams, and hunting stands!

Approximately 84.5 acres of class 3 Longford silt loam dryland farm ground lies north of the railroad right-of-way and has a crop-share agreement in place with a local tenant. Approximately 26 acres of rich, class 2, Tobin silt loam, bottomland farm ground lies south of the railroad right-of-way of which 20 acres are planted to a fresh stand of alfalfa and 6 acres in brome grass at the southeast corner of the property. The south 26 acres are in a cash rent agreement with the same tenant. In addition to the 6 acres at the southeast corner planted to brome, there is a beautiful stand of over 8 acres of brome in the grass waterways scattered across the northern portion of the property as well. A nice feature is that the northwest waterway connects to the other waterways and allows access to the entire north half of the property without driving through the farm ground.

The property is located in the southeast corner of section 12 township 16 range 2 on South Niles Road. The bridge to cross Spring Creek has been out for years and has turned that mile of South Niles into a dead-end road limiting traffic and creating an extra level of privacy and seclusion. The property is also bordered by similar ground on the east and west, creating sanctuaries and travel routes for deer and turkey. Loaded with great Kansas whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkeys, and bobwhite quail, this property is the perfect income-producing playground for anyone looking for their own little outdoor paradise in central Kansas!
