This mixed use recreational, farmland, development farm serves a variety of purposes in its current condition. The Northwest corner has an existing water well and electricity along the road frontage. It could be developed into a very nice homestead or a cabin for weekend getaways. Currently 50 acres of the 80 acres are in tillable production. There is a potential to gain more tillable soil with some clearing and cleaning. This farm holds the majority of the cover on a section of crop land. With habitat management geared toward creating security cover it would become an even better deer hunting farm.
The farm is conveniently located 4 miles to the West of Highway 169 South of Chanute, Ks. This is far enough away from the highway to feel like the country, however it does not require an abundance of muddy or dusty roads to travel. The water well in the Northwest corner is reported by the landowner to be excellent. The volume of water has never been a disappointment. There is a septic tank there, however it has not been used for quite some time. Electrical service is along Brown Road on the Western border of the property. According to the Kansas Rural Water Association there is a rural water line that is greater than 6 inches that runs along Brown Road as well.

An 80 acre property in Kansas has become highly sought after in Kansas. In this part of Neosho County giant whitetail deer are harvested annually. This farm comes with years of proof that it will lend the opportunity to harvest a true Kansas giant buck. Deer bed in the thick cover the sets nearly a half of a mile from any county road on the East edge of the property. A creek and a pond as well as many large trees suitable for stands make up this 10-12 acre oasis. It is surrounded by crop land giving it the trifecta of food, water, and cover all on this property that will also provide a return on the investment. Heavily wooded areas are not far from the farm and the deer use the thick tree rows to travel back and forth. The deer sign is evident when viewing this property.
As it sets there is a great opportunity to harvest a mature deer every year and a few ducks from the pond. This tract of land has a bright future in the hands of a land manager geared toward wildlife. There are endless opportunities to mold this into a mecca for deer and waterfowl. For the most part the property has a 0-1% slope, which creates minimal dirt work for marsh construction. This area has many ducks and geese that frequent the farm ponds and a marsh would be sure to attract their attention. Planting buffer strips and areas with tall grasses would enhance the number of acres of bedding for the deer. With an addition of bedding and secure travel corridors to come to and from the farm the chances of success will sky rocket.
From an agricultural stand point there is value in the existing 50+/- acres of land that is currently being cultivated. The soil is consistent across the entire acreage, which can be a rare find. Many fields will have a variety of soils, that require different management in order to achieve optimum results. Nearly the entire farm is Zaar Silty Clay and it has a 0-1% slope. It is scheduled to be planted to beans this year, however the landowner does not have any active agricultural leases on it at this time. If a farmer/operator was to purchase the property before the start of planting for 2021 they would have immediate control. The property has acreage not in production that maintains the same soil and slope, but has trees or debris on it. There is an opportunity to improve the ratio of acreage that is in production. The fencing around the farm would need attention if the new owner would plan to plant the field to grass and graze the farm. The property lines are hedge rows and there is existing fence in a variety of conditions in places and then other place where there is not any fencing.
