Flint Hills Fineness: Recreation, Pasture and CRP
This listing is hitting the market for the first time in generations and is a true jewel of the Flint Hills with a very desirable location just south of Manhattan and Wamego. The acreage total is 308 more or less with the property composed of extremely high-quality Native grass pasture, mature hardwood timber and CRP spread across a heavily rolling topography. It doesn’t get any more Flint Hills than this! This is a premium recreational parcel with utilities nearby if you’re looking to build a weekend getaway or your forever home.
The property is located just southwest of Pillsbury Crossing at the intersection of Daniels Drive and Letter Rock Rd. with utilities adjacent to this area although the Buyer would need to purchase meters. This portion of the parcel is in CRP currently but it’s a recently re-enrolled contract (2020) so if you wanted to buy out a portion to build a home, add food plots or convert back to cropland, the cost to do so would be reasonable. There’s a total of 101 acres of CRP on this tract that pays $6,237.00 annually expiring in 2035.
The heart of the property is ultra-private with no bordering public roads, providing a beautiful sanctuary for both wildlife and the landowner seeking peace and quiet. It will be a challenge for you to find a more scenic parcel in the Flint Hills than this. The landscape features tremendous elevation changes, heavily timbered draws, multiple ponds, and flowing springs including one that’s been developed! The whitetails are taking full advantage of the privacy and resources this tract provides as there’s a robust population evident as you explore the timbered portions.
The pasture portions of this tract have received excellent stewardship by both the landowner and the tenant. The grass has not been abused and the current condition, after the dry summer we’ve had, is a wonderful testament to both that stewardship and the resiliency of the Native grass species inhabiting the iconic Flint Hills. Bluestem, Indian, Switch, Grama and Gama varieties along with a healthy population of legumes are thriving on this picturesque parcel. The fences are also an attractive attribute with the boundary fences ranging from adequate to excellent with an average of good overall. We’d love to give you a tour of this beauty and you’ll quickly discover what sets it apart from the crowd!
