Indiana Land For Sale | Just 90 minutes from downtown Indy, a few miles from Hoosier National Forest and adjacent to a permanently protected and un-hunted Sycamore Land Trust Nature Preserve, this property has undergone 12 years of professional ecological restoration and wildlife habitat management. Reforestation, prairie, stream and wetland habitats have all been restored or developed on the property, resulting in one of the most diverse and high quality mid-sized farms that you will ever see in Indiana. Having spend a career in ecological restoration, the owner has spared no expense in creating an absolute haven for wildlife. In In addition to outstanding deer and turkey populations, resident species include beaver, mink, waterfowl, quail, grouse, bobcats, and bald eagles. The forest, prairie, stream and wetland habitats are enhanced with multiple season food plots and timber stand improvement practices have been utilized to maximize oak and other wildlife preferred species and create thick and undisturbed sanctuary bedding areas.

A turn-key ready to hunt property, the sale includes a furnished hunting cabin with covered porch, loft and wood stove, brand new pole barn and stone drive way. Hidden by tree plantings, the cabin is off the grid and overlooks the wetland out the front and the creek and back field food plot out the back. It comes fully equipped to manage the property including a tractor and several attachments, a Honda ATV with tank sprayer, a walk-behind self-propelled commercial finish mower and more. Besides the man-made features of the property and the fleet of equipment, this property contains some very unique and special attributes that really set it apart. There is a crystal-clear year-round running limestone stream full of beautiful geodes that separate the two main “field” areas. There are rock bluff outcroppings on the hillsides and a unique and gorgeous stand of native Eastern Hemlocks. Typically found in Canada or the Smokey Mountains, native hemlock stands are only found in a few small pockets in the state in places like Turkey Run state park and are the reason for the adjacent nature preserve. The steep hardwood timber rises up abruptly from the lower fields, and features one main big draw that feeds a runoff stream to the main creek below and is a highway for deer and turkey activity. The main ridge is connected to thousands of contiguous acres of big beautiful hardwoods. The property is almost entirely enrolled in Classified
Wildlife Habitat which allows for very minimal property tax liabilities. Portions of the formerly tillable land are enrolled in Conservation Reserve Programs including the native prairie planting along with some of the tree plantings and wetland and earns $3,250.00 in annual payments to the owner. Seven acres of tillable ground is left out of the CRP programs for food plots which are already established. Big bucks and countless does roam the timber and feed in the fields below. Gobblers roost on the ridges above and offer lots of great spring time fun for calling and matching wits with these cagey ole long beards. Waterfowl frequent the wetland area and add yet another extension of the hunting season to an avid outdoorsman and family. The seller will also leave the 4 tree stands on the property that are located in the best locations proven from years of observation and hunting success. This is a 100% turn-key opportunity for someone to step into a dream property that took a dedicated conservationist over a decade to build and maintain with countless hours and sweat equity. A unique opportunity for someone who values diverse habitats and enjoys active habitat management in addition to hunting, the seller is ready to pass the torch on to the next land steward.
