Auction: Neosho River – 99 +/- Acres
Located just west of Neosho Falls, this stunning property is situated on the bank of the Neosho River that forms its north boundary. Totaling 99 acres more or less, this is the ultimate parcel for the discerning buyer that wants river-bottom cropland with hunting appeal. It’s a rare 4 bagger property for waterfowl, whitetail, turkey and quail hunters offering return on investment with a high-quality farm tenant in place.
The cropland acreage totals approximately 64 acres and is composed of a mixture of Osage Silty Clay, Verdigris Silt Loam and Dennis Silt Loam varieties. The soybeans currently growing on the property look exceptional for the extreme drought conditions they’ve been put through this year. Again, there’s a high-quality farm tenant farming this tract that would be interested in continuing the lease. With conservation and wildlife in mind, there’s a Riparian CRP buffer strip flanking the river that the landowner diligently implemented by planting a diverse mix of hardwoods and berry producing shrubs. This should serve to your asset by protecting the river bank as well as provide sustenance for the local wildlife.
The CRP contract totals 2.43 acres paying $195 annually and expiring in 2032. The Buyer will need to transfer the CRP contract into their name within two weeks after closing.
The avid deer and duck hunter as well as fisherman will quickly fall in love with this offering, with a long stretch of Neosho River consisting of approximately 1/2 mile comprising the north boundary line. Mature hardwood timber bisects this tract from north to south and the deer hunter couldn’t ask for much better funneling as there’s timber feeding from four directions including an abandoned railroad right-of-way coming from the southeast that feeds directly into this tract. The landowner has done a great job of mowing trails through the timbered portions making easy travel corridors for the resident deer and turkeys. A huge bonus for the wildlife on this tract is an incredible population of paw paw trees that seem to be everywhere you turn when walking through the timber. Waterfowlers are well aware of the productivity of this area of the Neosho River extending north through the Flint Hills National Wildlife Refuge and close proximity to Wolf Creek Generating Station that is an unrivaled winter destination for ducks and geese along their flyway. Although there's a steep bank along most of the river bank, there's good river access at the northeast corner of the property.
There is a small amount of oil production on this tract with the landowner receiving a standard 1/8th royalty interest according to the rendition sheets provided by Woodson County which you can view under the "Related Documents" tab.
