Pasture, Hunting, and Crop Ground in Rice County, Kansas!
This country club wildlife refuge farm has something for everyone! There is pasture for livestock and hunting, combined with tillable ground for investment income or raising your own crops. The north half of the farm contains approximately 159 acres of native grass pasture with a nice mix of trees, grass, and shrubs. The pasture has thick cedar tree groves providing bedding cover for whitetail deer, large cottonwood trees for turkeys to roost in, and areas of grass and plum thickets perfect for pheasants and quail. The fact that this pasture has not been hunted in the last 4 years and has not had any livestock grazing for much longer than that, truly make it a wildlife refuge! After your morning hunt you can hit the links next door and play a round at the Sterling Country Club golf course! The south half of the farms consists of approximately 156 acres of tillable ground separated into 3 fields which raise excellent yields of wheat, corn, milo and soybeans. There is also a natural gas well in the middle of the crop fields producing additional income from the property. This farm is located east of Quivira National Wildlife Refuge and just one half mile away from the Arkansas River making it perfect for large groups of waterfowl. Numerous sandpits along the river and irrigated circles provide everything needed to hold large numbers of migrating ducks and geese. There is county blacktop road frontage on the south side and mature trees making for a perfect setting to build your dream home. This farm also has tremendous whitetail deer genetics that central Kansas is well known for. Check out the pictures of the shoulder mounts of deer taken by the owner over the years including one scoring well over 200 inches. Trail camera photos show another giant buck on this farm that was taken on the neighboring property and gross scored 238 inches and was featured in the North American Whitetail magazine. If you are looking to invest in the land market right now, this property has all the added benefits that land ownership provides!
