A Great Hunting & Recreational Farm at a Great Price!
Illinois Land For Sale | Here is a chance to own your own hunting or recreational farm at a great price. The property will be going into the WRP program this year, where you will be able to enjoy the fruits of someone else’s labor. On June 1st the seller will be planting the field on the east side of the farm in trees and the field on the west side will be left to naturally occurring succession. The tree species to be planted consist of, Pin Oaks, Cypress, Pecans, Persimmons, Bur Oaks, and Swamp White Oaks. With the implementation of the WRP and the return of native plants, there is no doubt the results will be a vastly improved habitat, provide better food, security, and bedding, which will attract those mature river-bottom bucks to this farm. With all these trees being planted, these species will be future income-producing trees, understanding this will be down the road, but income nonetheless. Although oaks are known to be slow-growers, some of your soft woods, such as Sycamore and Silver Maple, will only take 3-5 years to begin offering a very noticeable woodsy look and feel. If you enjoy fishing, the Wabash River borders the entire east side of the farm. Bordering the west side, you have the Embarras River Bottoms State Habitat Area, which consists of approximately 1,880 acres that you can also access and hunt. There is a lot to package with these 98.38 acres but the opportunities here are unlimited, especially at this price point. Even if you’re just looking for a property to enjoy for camping or ATV riding with your family, this farm has it.
