FARM LAND FOR SALE!
Located in South Pike County less than 15 minutes from Troy, AL, Spring Hill Farm presents an outstanding opportunity to acquire some active farm land and enjoy some fantastic hunting in south Alabama. The Farm features a great mix of active crop land and hardwoods, a beautiful creek, and some ideal deer and turkey habitat. There are three fields under cultivation, separated by creeks and surrounded by woods, and there is a deep well already on site. Although it lies off the county road access to the Farm is not an issue – there is a well-maintained, 40’ access and utilities easement from the road to the tract.
This is a genuine investment opportunity - farm land is in high demand and Spring Hill Farm provides income through an annual farm lease that can be continued. Or, you have the option to terminate the lease if you want to do your own farming. The well-drained, sandy loam soil is ideal for growing cotton, peanuts, corn, or soybeans (cotton was grown in 2018). After the crops are harvested in the fall, these fields provide the perfect opportunity to plant some large food plots for the winter. You could also convert the farm land to pasture and raise some animals, put into hay production, or plant trees. With approximately 80 acres of active farmland, you have enough land to do any combination of the above.
Spring Hill Farm has everything necessary to host healthy populations of deer, turkey, and other south Alabama wildlife. There are almost 100 acres of woods around the three fields which provide plenty of food and cover. A year-round, cool water creek with a sandy bottom enters from the NW corner and flows southeasterly for almost a half mile before exiting to the south. Smaller, seasonal creeks in other parts of the farm create nice travel corridors between fields for the deer. Some of the timber was harvested 10-15 years ago and is regenerating nicely.
Turkeys love this combination of open fields for eating and strutting, the tall woods for roosting and eating acorns, and the cool water to drink. Deer are particularly fond of the miles of “edges” created by the fields and the excellent combination of thick cover for bedding and the abundance of food. The woods are a good mix of mast-producing hardwoods, cypress, and pines. There are plenty of white and red oaks and hickory trees spread throughout the creek bottoms. A duck pond on the south boundary and a small patch of cypress swamp in the NW corner add nice diversity to the tract. A very wide creek bottom immediately to the west (Big Creek is not on the property but is close) adds a nice buffer from other neighbors and provides more great habitat for the wildlife.
This tract is perfect for someone who wants a good investment property and loves to hunt. Competitively priced at less than $2,000 per acre, Spring Hill Farm is a great buy!
