Whitton VZ Ranch
Family owned 171 Ac +/- ranch located just south of Canton TX nestled next to the community of Whitton. Solid cattle ranch with good carrying capacity boasting improved pastures and managed soils. Strong grasses and each pasture has ponds for both livestock and wildlife to water. Fences are generally in good shape and there are a good set of cattle working pens plus barns and shop building for equipment storage.
The brick farmhouse with a metal roof is in very good condition with many upgrades leaving only the new owner's personal taste to be tweaked. There's a great barn and working pens. Perfect space behind the garage for a home office or "man cave".
In addition to being a great cattle ranch, there is some opportunity for hunting and fishing for recreational purposes for friends and family! Whitetail deer frequent the creek bottom enjoying the plentiful winter browse and waterfowl can be excellent when winter rains fill the sloughs.
