This is an extremely versatile property that could go into cultivation, a cattle/haying operation or remain as a wildlife sanctuary. The North half of this property has been in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) (the contract is currently expired, which offers flexibility to the buyer). The CRP is a mix of native grasses which provides ideal habitat for quail, wild turkeys, Whitetail deer and other wildlife. Numerous quail, turkey and deer have been sighted on the property. The South side of the property is a native/fescue forage mix with clover established throughout the meadow. This area provides excellent hay, and clover is a natural attractant for the numerous big white-tailed deer and turkey that stay on this ground. Intermittent streams cross the property from North to South in two different drainages, creating a natural funnel for wildlife with mature hard wood forested areas. These hardwoods include several varieties of Oak trees to provide lots of mast for browsing deer. This area provides ample bedding, staging, and travel corridors. There is access to the Verdigris River on the Southeast corner of the property, and the buyer will have valuable irrigation rights as well. The Verdigris is known for its outstanding flathead catfish numbers and size, as well as opportunities for other fish species. Irrigation rights are dwindling in the state and the ability to irrigate this property could be priceless.
The property is surrounded by cultivated fields currently in corn, soybeans and wheat; which makes this property the bedding area of choice for the area’s wildlife. There are several outstanding potential building sites on the property with utilities available from the road. . In the low-lying areas of the property there might be the potential to construct a small wetland area for waterfowl. There are numerous federal and state resources available for improving private lands. A landowner can seek technical and financial assistance through the local Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) office. NRCS works with the landowner to develop a plan of action for properties and guides them through the process of applying for assistance.
For a buyer interested in rich soils and production possibilities or the avid hunter that wants their once in a lifetime opportunity, this property deserves your attention.

According to the Kansas Regional Center, some of the most important factors in choosing a place to live is lifestyle, safety and ease of finding jobs.
“You're looking for a place with a low cost of living, nationally ranked schools and picture-perfect communities. But you also want a place with world-class dining, great nightlife and wide-open spaces for outdoor adventure. It isn’t always easy to find that combination. But that’s exactly what you get in Kansas.
In Kansas, we don’t just live life. We live life to the fullest. We’re big on business and economic development, but we know how to relax and have a good time, too. We’re balancing work and play, progress and history, urban and rural to create a quality of life you can’t find anywhere else. And that’s what makes this place so special.
The cost of living in Kansas is nearly 8.7 percent below the national average, making our state among the most affordable in the nation. From food and gasoline to property taxes and car insurance, most of what you need costs less here. Housing costs are especially low, with the median value of owner-occupied homes nearly 35 percent below the national average. In fact, Kansas is ranked among the most affordable places in the country for buying a home. The bottom line is this - your dollar goes further here.”
As Native Kansans, we couldn’t agree more. Come see why the Sunflower State should be your home too.
