REDUCED! The Wearden North Farm is an exceptional recreational property featuring farming income and prime rice land. In an area renowned for its waterfowl hunting, this property provides for some of the best waterfowling opportunities within 100 miles of Houston.
Habitat: This is a predominantly open rice farm and cattle ranch. Longs Branch Creek crosses the far southwest corner of the property, providing approximately 25 acres of scattered live oaks and brush.
Wildlife: For waterfowl, along the Texas Gulf Coast, it is hard to find a better location. Within a 10 mile radius of this property are thousands of acres of rice ground, many of which are managed in part for waterfowl. Dove hunting can be excellent, and the ranchs sandy soils would be conducive to quail restoration. Deer, hogs, and varmints visit the farms wooded and pasture areas.
Cropland: Approximately 220 acres are typically planted in rice on a 3-year rotation. One +115 acre block has been bench leveled. The farm has 887 acres enrolled in the current farm program, with 294 acres of rice base with a high program yield. While recent rice crops have been for hybrid seed rice, the farmer confirms this property is very capable of 60-barrel yields if conventionally farmed (9,720 #s/acre).
Water: The 820 irrigation well on this farm is estimated to flow at 1,500 g.p.m. under a normal load. The engines and pump are owned by the farmer and are not included in the offering price. A shallow electric well is located in the southwest corner of the property, providing a source of livestock water at the pens.
