Property Description

SALE PENDING – I’ve been on a lot of farms in my career, but this is a special place from a conservationist’s point of view! The owner has gone to great lengths in creating a wildlife paradise from the establishment of the native prairie grasses to the addition of nesting boxes.The farms holding power for mature whitetails is unparalleled from a habitat point of view. The warm season grasses (switch grass) give deer and pheasants a security better than timber, in my opinion. There is an abundance of natural edge along with the grasses and the timber is also diverse with thick river bottoms to upland oak stands. French Creek flows the acreage and creates a funneling effect for deer during the rut plus offers great smallmouth bass fishing in the Spring and Summer. The north & south access points are perfect for hunting with different winds. The tillable has a 130 P.I. average and can be put back into production if desired.

There are 2 large storage containers staying on the farm with a perfect homesite and a graveled lane into the site.

Call Don Wagner or Chase Burns for a tour of this amazing farm.
