Located in the open Flint Hills, just 4 miles west of Hamilton, Kansas off of Highway 99, this long time family-owned farm sits on both the north and south sides of 255th Street and west along the dead-end S Road. These two well-maintained roads allow for easy year-round access along with the two cattle guard entrances and three additional roadside gate entrances. Turning out or pulling off cattle rain or shine will never be an issue here. The 316 +/- acre property is made up of 273 +/- acres of prime Native Bluestem grazing grass and 43 +/- acres of timber and creek.
The timber stand is complete with locust, osage orange, elm, and black walnut and the always running Homer Creek carves a path through it, providing an excellent secondary water source for the property and has several deep pool spots along the way through the property. There are five ponds throughout, two in the south and three in the north. In the southeast corner of the property, a pond has been fenced off from livestock and provides great fishing. There are soil types of Eram, Kenoma, Reading, and Martin. The 5-strand perimeter fencing is in average to above average condition, with no need of replacing or repairs.
The property is currently leased for the 2019 cattle grazing year and stocked with yearlings that will pull off in August. The annual lease rent is $8,000. The property has been also leased in previous years for hunting, with great success. Several mature whitetails have been harvested on the property, with deer signs throughout the timber, along the creek, and southwest pasture. Hunting lease pays $4,000 annually. There are four oil wells in current production with Gaffney Oil. The surface rights remain intact and will be transferred to the buyer. This 316 +/- acre tract that sits in cattleman's county provides, not only some of the best livestock grazing, but an opportunity to have a great return on investment with additional income.
