Farms along the Arkansas River rarely come up for sale and when they do they usually only have one side of the river. This dream farm has everything an avid outdoorsman looking for a return on his investment could want, and has both sides of the river. The farm has just over 1 mile of the Arkansas River, and 2+/- miles of coon creek. The river and creek winding through the farm creates excellent pinch points, open pockets, and thick cover to hold all the wildlife. Mature cottonwoods and cedar trees cover the farm along the river allowing for multiple areas to set up tree stands. You can't ask for a better mix of pasture, river, creek, and tillable combination for world class hunting. There are multiple homemade tower blinds that stay with the property. The sellers over built the blinds. Some of the blinds feature insulation, propane heat, double pane windows, solar panels, and even cots to use to stay all night. It's a normal day to see between 50-100 deer using the ag. fields around the tower blinds in the winter. The farm also includes multiple 2,000 lb. feeders and tree-stands.
This is the perfect turn key operation!
For the Farmers: There are approximately 240+/- acres in production. Current crops this year include alfalfa and wheat. The dryland tillable acres are currently being custom farmed. This farm does sell with all the equipment listed above. There are multiple storage sheds and equipment barns on the property. 30'x40' Round-top storage shed with electric and water and a 50'x100' hay shed.
For the Waterfowlers: The open pockets on the river / creek get stacked with waterfowl when all the other water sources freeze over. There are springs in coon creek that never go dry, and the 20 years the owners have pieced these farms together they have never seen the creek or river go dry. Coon creek is well known for the wood duck population along the thick timbered edges. There is a slough just east of the creek that fills full of mallards as well. Another waterfowl hotspot is where coon creek meets the Arkansas river creating a large open pool for the ducks to use.
Fishing: The sellers have enjoyed catching catfish and bass in both coon creek and the Arkansas river over the years. Several bends in the creek and pools that are deeper are great fishing!
Other Notes: 10,000 yards of fill dirt material is being pulled off the property to help finish the road construction off 156. Mineral rights negotiable.
