Located just south off I-35 between Williamsburg and Ottawa, Kansas, the adventure starts at the gated entrance on this incredible 240 acre tract with no end in sight! With a perfect balance of big timber, high yielding tillable, native grasses, multiple ponds, streams and springs, this pristine tract is truly one of a kind. Heading north along the established drive, one quickly takes notice of the immaculate care the property has received over the years. Wildlife trails darting off in every direction into the dense timber stand along the way, with a marked shooting range off to the east. A tranquil, stocked pond sits in the heart of the south 80 acres where one can spend the days and eves away, fishing and enjoying the campsite. A 30' x 40' shop sits just to the east of the pond, perfect for storage. Keep moving along the trail, and you'll notice the elevation changes along the deep draws that bring you up to the clearing into the north 160. Here lies the 69.7 acres of high-yielding tillable ground. Several stand and blind locations are in this area. Touring the farm for the first time with the owners was great. I was able to hear all the hunting memories and successes and see their hotspots. You can sure tell this farm is thriving with wildlife and this family doesn't let anyone else hunt the property. 3 additional ponds in each timber block with several streams and running springs throughout the north 160. With all the signs, I can only imagine what will be on the camera when I head back for card pulls. On the northeast corner of the farm is a prime build site with full utilities available.
This remarkable recreation farm has been the pride and joy of this family over the years, even down to the trail mowing through and around the tillable fields for year-round access, and is one to tour in person to truly take in all the elements if offers. Call Land Agent Brenda Doudican to answer any questions on the farm or to schedule your private tour!
