This is the 521 +/- Acre Stalker Farm on the White River in Batesville, AR.  As you leave the Delta following the White River West, the land starts to transition from the Mississippi Delta to the foothills of the Ozarks.  The farms along the White River consists of row crop and then transition into rolling hills and pastures!  These farms have been in the same families dating back several generations.  We are proud to bring you one of these such farms.  


This 521 +/- acre Stalker farm consists of tillable acres on the south side of Gap Road and beautiful timber ground, including Pine Mountain, on the north side of Gap Road.  The tillable acres are currently non-irrigated but do not let that scare you.  The White River Bottom is known for some of the most fertile soil in the world.  The beauty of the Stalker Farm, even though it is currently non-irrigated, could be easily converted to irrigated.  With farms selling in the mid-west from 15,000 to 20,000 per acre, this would be an excellent opportunity to buy non-irrigated water and install irrigation!  The Stalker farm has been in the Stalker family for 75+/- years.  The family house and barn are still there.  The barn could be restored into many different things, from a wedding venue to a gathering place for a family or returned to work as a barn for the farm.  The family home will need some work, but it is a gorgeous old farmhouse.  This home sits on a hill guarded by giant red oak trees, looking over the families stocked pond.  This farm has hundreds of locations that could be made into beautiful home sites, but one of the most interesting spots is on top of Pine Mountain.  Pine Mountain rises far above the farm, standing guard over the White River Bottoms!  During the Civil War, this is precisely what they used it for!  Being one of the tallest and first mountains coming up from the Delta, Confederate Soldiers used this mountain to watch Union Soldiers make their way west into the Ozarks to try and take the town of Batesville. Legends have it that on Pine Mountain, a considerable amount of treasure was buried on its summit, and even today, you can see where many holes were dug where treasure hunters searched for the buried treasures in the late 1800s.  Pine Mountain would be a great place to have a home, getting up every morning and watching the sunrise over the White River.  Pine Mountain would also be a great place to build cabins to rent out so the whole world could enjoy the beauty of Pine Mountain while looking over the White River Bottoms!


As you see in the photos, this land has another piece of history!  A master woodcarver and his art!  If you have been looking for a farm with beauty, history, an old barn, an old farmhouse, tillable land, pasture land, river frontage, woods for hunting, and the best views, HERE YOU GO!!  This farm has it all!  This farm is 3 miles down Gap Road off 69 and only 5 miles from the Batesville Hospital.  This farm would be an excellent development for new housing on the White River, Cabins to be built and rented out, or just a nice farm to have and enjoy daily!  This farm is so close to town but feels so far away when you are on it.  The hunting on this farm is also incredible!  There are lots of turkey on the high mountain tops and whitetail deer in the valleys!  This farm has it ALL!
