160 Ac - Shady Grove Farm - Coffee Co.
161 acres in Coffee County, Alabama
Listing Status: Under Contract
Here is a turnkey farm and cattle operation in north Coffee County just a few miles from Elba! Shady Grove Farm’s 160 gorgeous acres feature irrigated cropland, improved pasture, a nice home, barns, pond, creeks, and a whole lot more. Located near the small community of Shady Grove, the farm is ready for a new crop to be planted, for new cattle to start grazing, and for a new family to call it home. Two large creeks provide a steady supply of fresh water and the perfect habitat for deer and turkey. The country-style home features an open floor plan with large bedrooms, hardwood floors, and tongue-in-groove walls. Ideally situated in a quiet, country neighborhood, Shady Grove Farm is waiting for new owners to make this their special place. Highlights include:
- 2,560 sq ft, 3 BR / 2.5 BA home built in 2000 with attached 30x50 carport/barn
- 55 acres of center-pivot, irrigated cropland
- 40 acres improved pasture
- 100x40 equipment barn with 20’ lean-to and grain bin in good condition
- Frontage for over 1.3 miles on two named, year-round creeks
- 4,200’ of paved road frontage
- Outstanding deer and turkey hunting
Cropland is in high demand and irrigated cropland is not common in this area. The 55 acres of well-drained, sandy loam soil are ideal for growing cotton, peanuts, corn, or soybeans (cotton was grown in 2019). After the crops are harvested in the fall, these fields provide the perfect opportunity to plant a cover crop of rye or some large food plots for the winter. The 40 acres of improved pasture are spread out with cross fencing and gates in the all the right places. The pole barn with lean-to allows you to store all your large equipment under cover. With Bluff Creek and Big Creek forming the east boundary, and a pond and Pridgeon Branch (another named creek) in the interior, there is no shortage of water.
The home perfectly complements the farm. It features an open concept with a large living/den area, spacious kitchen with dining area and breakfast nook. The bedrooms are over-sized, with big walk-in closets in each room. It also has a large utility/mud room in the back and another room that would serve perfectly as an office. You will like the look and utility of the exterior wood siding and metal roof. The attached carport matches the home and provides ample covered storage for vehicles and other equipment.
With Bluff Creek and Big Creek forming the east boundary, and a pond and Pridgeon Branch (another named creek) in the interior, there is no shortage of water. The creek bottoms contain a good mix of mast-producing hardwoods with white and red oaks scattered throughout. Turkeys love this combination of open fields for eating and strutting, the creek bottom hardwoods for roosting and eating acorns, and the cool water to drink. Deer are particularly fond of the “edges” created by the fields and the excellent combination of cover for bedding and the abundance of food. The tracks, scrapes and rubs provide ample evidence that there are plenty of whitetails that call this place home.
Surrounded by other farms and large tracts of timberland, and with the perfect mix of cropland, pasture, woods and water, Shady Grove Farm has everything you have been searching for.
