382+/- acres to be determined by survey now available for the first time in over 30 years. The seller lives on the farm and is keeping his home shop and approx 30 acres. He has farmed and taken care of this farm his entire adult life and can tell you about every square inch of it. He has sparred no expense and maintained the most fertile creek bottom land that will outproduce most any other farmland in the county. Grid Soil Samples have been done and the Lime and P&K levels are where they need to be. Not very often do I get a chance to sell a farm that has been taken care of properly but this is one of those good ones. 246 Tillable acres mostly all currently planted in soybeans are big and even and going to make a great crop this fall in one of the driest summers we have seen in several years.
55 acres of cattle pasture with about 18 acres of mature producing native pecan trees roll up the hill out of the bottom along Rooks Rd. You will find a nice set of pipe cattle working pens with a freeze proof water tank and its own rural water meter already in place if you would wish to build a house or cabin up on the hill overlooking the bottom. The big mature native timber that lines Labette Creek is home to a healthy herd of Deer and flocks of Turkeys. This farm boast almost 3 miles of creek frontage and it lies less than 1 mile South of the Famous Kansas Army Ammunition Plant. Yes you read that correctly the "Ammo Plant" is a 14,000 acre complex that encompasses some of the best wildlife Habitat in SE KS. Part of it is highly managed by the KDWP also known as the Grand Osage Wildlife area. They have controlled archery hunts that you might have to apply for the next 20 years to get lucky enough to get drawn into. Some of the biggest bucks in KS come in and around the ammo plant and the Labette Creek Drainage. Now to start talking about the waterfowl this area can produce is 2nd to none. The Ammo Plant has 100's of big ponds and small lakes and nobody can hunt them so this is is essentially a refuge for loafing ducks and geese all day as they fly out morning and evening to feed in the ag fields or the flooded wetlands. This farm lies 4 miles West of the Neosho River and just 17 miles South of the St Paul Neosho Wildlife Area Waterfowl Refuge that can easily hold 30,000+ mallards. The shallow riffles of LB Creek on a cold frozen January can be as exciting of a duck hunt as you will ever experience. The farm has 2 oxbow lakes on it from the days long ago when the creeks used to turn and curve around every corner. These are waterfowl hotspots and do not dry up unless we are in extreme drought conditions. With some levees and box structures installed you could easily make this property one of the most unique waterfowl destinations in SE KS. This farm consist of mostly all Hepler Silt Loam soils. This is one of the most fertile types of soil in Labette County and it also happens to be the soil type required to be eligible for enrollment into the WRP "Wetlands Reserve Program" that is paying at or above $2,000 per acre.
This farm has all the mineral rights and they transfer to the buyer. No CRP programs or WRP programs or any kind of hunting or ag leases are in place at all. The possession of the property is negotiable but the seller retains the right to not close on the property until Jan 15th 2021 or before solely at the sellers discretion.
