GENERAL DESCRIPTION: This 125 +/- acre farm is located in the Flint Hills Ecoregion of Southeast Kansas, on the Elk and Chautauqua County line. It is comprised of a mix of open pasture/ hay ground and moderate to heavy timber. The property is fenced for cattle, with ample water provided by Spring Creek as well as multiple ponds. The property has excellent access via county road, which ends at the southwest corner of the farm. There is a home, garage and large equipment shop.
HOMESTEAD: The two-story farmhouse is over 100 years old, and contains 3 bedrooms and one bathroom and approximately 1600 sq. ft. of living space. There is a detached garage, as well as a large equipment shop complete with concrete floor. Interesting point: next to the home, there are several very large Oak trees believed to be over 350 years old – and according to the family, KSU ranked these oak trees as some of the oldest and largest in the state of Kansas! The history of this property continues with the remnants of a primitive ice-house, with one of the stones stamped “1806”. The property is located on a dead-end county road and the house is a quarter mile back from the road, so the location is perfect for privacy and secluded enough for quality recreation and hunting.
HUNTING LAND: The Flint Hills Ecoregion covers 11,400 square miles and contains the last large pieces of tallgrass prairie in the country. Located in Kansas Deer Management Unit 12 and Turkey Management Unit 6, there is excellent opportunity for whitetail deer, turkey, prairie chicken, and quail hunting. A trail system allows for convenient access of the entire property by truck or UTV, and there are multiple blinds already in place to hunt from. The mix of open and cover areas along with water sources make this prime habitat for a variety of wildlife.
SOIL TYPES: The primary soil types on the farm are: Ivan silt loam, Benfield cherty silt, Mason silt loam, Eram silty clay loam, Clime-Sogn complex and Bates loam.
TAXES: The general taxes for 2018 were $2,137.62.
MINERALS: The Seller’s share of mineral rights will sell with the surface.
AUCTIONEERS NOTE: This farm has been in the Miller Family for many years and due to the passing of their father (Charles F. Miller), it is now being made available. The farm will offer the new owners an excellent opportunity for hunting, cattle grazing and rural Kansas living. Don’t miss this opportunity to purchase a nice Elk County, Kansas farm.
