Very centrally located on the property is a 1 acre pond that brings so much character to this acreage. As you navigate through the woods via utv trails the pond emerges and gets more interesting as more of it comes into frame. The are trees that where left in the ravine at the time of the ponds construction. They now stick up high above the water and create excellent habitat for the bass, perch, and crappie that call this pond home. There is a sturdy metal dock frame that is awaiting someone to finish it. Once the boards are applied it is easy to see how this will become a favored hang out location for all of the family. Activities such as fishing with friends or family in addition to launching kayaks or an old flat bottom jon boat are sure to be a fan favorite. This private water feature is not the only thing that makes this property a recreational dime piece. The deer hunting in this part of Southeast Kansas draws hunters from across the country. A purchasing this farm lying in the heart of excellent habitat and joined by thriving neighboring farms puts any hunting addict in a scenario that will be hard to stay away from.

The oaks are in that line the ridges are symbolic of the cross timbers ecosytem. It is know for large sandstone outcroppings and an insanely high production of acrons. This property has a balance of the cross timber ecosystem that is beginning to blend with the Eastern edge of the Flint Hills. It does have some characterics that belong with both such as native grasses and rolling hills. North of the biggest pond is a sandstone outcropping that has a spring in it. It seeps water out that eventually runs into the pond. There are class 2 and 3 soils mixed in with the aggressive terrian changes. Some of those soils are currently used for hay production and the rest for cattle grazing. However, they would also be very condusive to growing large food plots! The perimeter fencing is intact and is currently holding a small herd of cattle. The hay meadow and and another small field to the East are fenced separately. They would allow someone to have summer food plots and still take advantage of a summer grazing program for the cattle. A 38 x 48 foot farm utility shelter is located along Road 24 which is a dead end road and the Eastern boundary of this tract. This property is truly an opportunity to transfer one families legacy to the next.
