Nestled in the heart of Russell County, these two properties are located a mere 2.5 miles apart along Hwy 281. The topography of these farms, enriched by the presence of CRP land, cropland, meandering waterways, lush pastures, and dense timber, creates a vibrant ecosystem teeming with wildlife. Pheasants, quail, and deer roam freely across the landscape, blessed with abundant habitat, shelter, nourishment, and tranquil bedding spots.

These properties have been thoughtfully configured to optimize their potential value, making them highly versatile for cattle grazing, farming, hunting, and income generation. The north property, in particular, stands out with a new fence encompassing the entire premises, enhancing security and aesthetics, implemented in 2021. Moreover, a unique year-to-year lease agreement with the State of Kansas covers 2 acres of the south property, yielding an income of $5,000 per annum. This arrangement serves as a stockpile location for state rock and materials during highway refinishing projects. Both properties retain their valuable mineral rights, though they currently sit unutilized, brimming with potential.

The 232-acre southern property features the convenience of a water well and electricity, making it well-equipped for various activities. A newer fence lines two sides of the property, enhancing its appeal. Its land use is diverse, encompassing 41.25 acres of CRP which expires in 2032, 72+/- acres of cropland, and the remainder graced by pastureland, meandering waterways, a flourishing hay meadow, and stands of majestic trees. The 142-acre northern property consists of 88+/- acres of cropland, presently planted to wheat.

These properties are further elevated by their convenient location, sitting just off HWY 281, ensuring effortless access for residents and visitors alike. Furthermore, the enchanting backdrop of the rolling Flint Hills frames the picturesque beauty of this rare offering. These properties aren’t just land; they’re a canvas for realizing your vision of rural living, income generation, and wildlife appreciation.
