Henry County’s Hidden Treasure
Indiana Land For Sale | This fantastic property boasts over 800 hundred YARDS of road frontage. Yes YARDS!!! That’s 2400 feet of road frontage. It also has an annual income of $4,000 from the tillable acres cash rent. These two attributes make this medium sized property very unique. The vast amount of frontage allows for several different entry and exit points for hunting access with a north wind, and allow for creative driveway options if building is what you have in mind. This farm is in a BIG BUCK producing area of Henry County. Three of the four boundaries of this property are accented by two staggered rows of white pines and spruce trees that are 4-5 feet tall now, and in a few years will completely block the view from the perimeter with the fourth side being the woods.
Once these trees are 8-10 foot tall it will create an amazing wall blocking sight and sound to the middle of the property for both hunting screening or your new home. These trees will provide the ultimate in privacy without the need for you to be miles off the road. As you walk the maintained trails along the winding edge of the woods you’ll find several small foot plots that have been established in strategic location with 12-14 foot tall Sudan grass guarding them from view, and creating security for the deer during daylight all the while enjoy the clover, sunflowers, beans and corn well before dark. The 12-14 foot grass is a conservative estimate. The gentleman in the picture with this listing is 6’6″ tall, and as you can see some of the grass next to him and behind are several feet taller than he is. As you make your way along the woods you find a small hidden 1/8 acre stocked pond with bluegill, bass and crappie. You will not believe the size of the bass in this pond for this small of a body of water. A healthy number of 5 and 6 pounders thrive in this pond.
The pond is fed by the run off from a small drainage ditch that was dammed up with an overflow to maintain the depth of the pond which at it’s deepest is 16 feet. When walking around the pond it didn’t take long to see all of the deer tracks letting you know the pond was being utilize by more than just the fish. Trails wind through the thick woods where there are some of the largest maple trees you will ever see. In the woods you find some rolling terrain with small drainages creating natural travel corridors for wildlife to traverse. There are some very nice pockets of young walnut trees that in 15-20 years may be ready for a selective harvest creating income for the new owner. Similar to that found in the woods the fields share a similar amount of rolling topography. The lower, less desirable tillable acres have been taken out of crop production and let revert back to native and natural forbs and grasses. These areas play a very important role in the management of the farm. Deer and other wildlife utilize these pockets as bedding and fawning cover throughout most of the year, and the root systems from these plants hold the erodible soil in place. This farm has produced many big deer as seen in some of the trail camera pictures, and will continue to get better with each year of development with good management practices.
This farm has seen hundreds of hours of sweat and hard work in developing it as a premier hunting farm, and could be someone’s dream building site with amazing hunting right out the back door.
