Description

This 320 +/- mixed use farm is a recreational paradise with possible income from cattle grazing. The property features characteristics of the cross timber ecosystem and the flint hills. A storage container atop of a hill by the main entrance creates a place to stay. The pond and creeks add to the recreational opportunities. Miles of trails are located throughout the timber and pastures. This place truly has something for every one. 

Whitetail deer hunting has brought a lot of attention to the once wild parts of Kansas. Greenwood county is no stranger to big deer as it ranks as one of the best counties in Kansas for Pope and Young entries. The deer herd is strong and the buck to doe ratio is very good. The trail camera pictures show multiple mature deer using the farm right now. The age structure of the bucks is also in order. The land in Kansas has what it takes to make big deer, the genetics of the bucks has what it takes to make big deer, all that is needed is a place for them to get old. This property is the last stop on a dead end road and has very little road frontage. It is primarily made up of the timbered ridges and thick creek bottoms, but also has a bit of the tall grass prairie on it. The neighboring properties are big ranches and the prairie grasses extend for miles to the North with no county roads! Not to be cliche, but this property is where the black top ends!

Then access is via a county road located along the North boundary. Passing through the locked gate leads to a shipping container that has been modified to be a cabin. There are two separate compartments in it with one being intended to use for storage and the other for living quarters. Although it is a bit primitive it also has many of the amenities to make it comfortable. There is electricity, lights, and a heating/cooling unit. A couple of cots or beds and it would be ready for overnight camping. All that it is missing is running water. Two potential remedies for this are to drill a well or attach to a rural water line. Wilson County water district number 11 has a line that is 3/4 of mile to the East. There is a map in the pictures that shows the water district and the blue star is this tract of land. 

The land is a bit mesmerizing. The variety of habitat and the way it patches together makes the land feel like it goes on forever. Leaving the cabin and heading south along the utv trail leads to the pond. What was once a two separate ponds has been merged into one very unique body of water. It has a channel lined with large rocks and the water is very clear. The farm is located 4 miles from Fall River Lake and 6 miles from Toronto Lake as the duck flies. There are no shortages of ducks in the area. This pond as well as ponds on the surrounding farms fill up with waterfowl as they fly over from lake to lake and out to feed. Trails head in multiple directions from the pond. The trail to the South winds through the woods and out into a very secluded pasture that the bucks love. This pasture is equipped with a ladder stand and big deer feeder.  Scrapes and rubs are evident along the trails and the pictures from the Tactacam Reveals show the bucks that are making them! The cameras have also proved that this farm is home to turkeys. Turkeys once inhabited every creek bottom in Kansas, but that is no longer the case. If turkey hunting is a must for your next farm it is important that you obtain proof that they are there. 

The discussion could continue on about how great the deer, turkey, and waterfowl hunting are, but it is now time to discuss the other recreational opportunities. This farm has miles of trails and they can be navigated in multiple was. A side by side can go nearly any where on the farm via the trails and a truck can go through many of them. The trail system would double for a peaceful hike in the woods. The trails navigate through portions of tall prairie grass, wooded ridges, and creek bottoms. The trees on the ridges have formed a canopy and the understory is open. The creek bottoms have large mature timber. There is a marketable about of standing walnut timber in the drainages along the creeks. Fall River State Park at Fall River Lake and the Cross Timbers State Park at Toronto Lake are both very close to the property.  Fall River is a clear water river and is known for kayaking and canoeing in the river that feeds the lake. 

Wichita is a little over one hour to the West of this property. With the location of the farm being six miles North of Highway 400 it will make most of the drive on the highway with a short gravel finish. Kansas City is two and a half hours to the Northeast and Tulsa, Ok is a bit over two hours to the Southeast.
