Strong Farm provides an outstanding opportunity for someone looking to invest in farmland, build a homestead, raise cattle or horses, manage timber, and enjoy some of the finest hunting in south Alabama! Located in North Coffee County in the Jack community, this exceptional tract features an ideal mix of farmland and woods, Whitewater Creek frontage, and almost two miles of road frontage on two County Roads. There are unlimited options for building a home or a nice camp; you could build back near the creek for maximum peace and tranquility or anywhere along the road frontage for convenience.
Approximately 105 acres of the farm are currently in cultivation. Crops are rotated between corn, cotton and peanuts each summer (peanuts were grown in 2018), and a cover crop is planted in the winter. The balance of the property is in a mix of primarily hardwoods with some pines. There is great diversity in the timber, ranging from mature hardwoods in the bottoms and around the fields, to a mix of pines and more hardwoods in the uplands. If a species of tree grows in south Alabama, you will likely find it here!
Whitewater Creek is a large, year-round creek, easily one of the prettiest creeks in the entire area. It enters the property from the east and flows southwest, providing almost a mile of creek frontage for the farm. Several other creeks also run throughout the tract, enhancing the ecosystem and ensuring a constant source of cool, clean water. The creek systems create some outstanding wildlife habitat and are home to deer, turkey, wood ducks, fish, and much, much more. Surrounded by other farms and large timber tracts, and rich with native Alabama woods and wildlife, Strong Farm has some of the best deer and turkey hunting in southeast Alabama.
Strong Farm has over 2,300 feet of road frontage on County Road 215 (paved), and 8,180 feet of frontage on County Road 217 (dirt). Power is available on both roads. The creeks and topography of the land provide some excellent options for constructing ponds or a perhaps a very nice lake. With its extensive road frontage, this property would be a great candidate for dividing and selling home sites along the road.
