This quarter section in Ness County, KS, checks many boxes for both the avid hunter and the farm operator looking to add some more quality acres. In an area plush with wildlife and excellent crop production, this farm features a good dose of upland and big game habitat while also featuring nearly 92 acres of cropland consisting of Class II and III silt loam soils. The southeast corner of the property features over a ¼ mile of double-rowed cedar windbreaks, an old pond site, and tall grass and native forbs that are beneficial for holding pheasants, quail, and deer. Long cedar windbreaks like this are frequently used by whitetail and mule deer in this area as shelter from the cold winter winds. The nearly 52 acres of grassland at the NW corner is highlighted by a rugged rock ledge overlooking a seasonal stream bed with a few trees providing shade and cover for deer in the area. Even some gobbling tom turkeys were heard nearby upon our first visit. Given its close proximity to Ransom, KS, and Hwy 4, this is a good potential property for building as well, with utilities nearby.
