Chetopa Tillable Farm and Wetland
This high-quality, high-percentage tillable cropland is near the border of Labette County between Oswego and Chetopa and just east of the Neosho River. Very little of the property lacks income productivity with 492 +/- acres tillable of the total 550 +/- acres. In addition, the northeast 80 +/- acres has roughly 50 acres of wetlands that aren't currently being farmed, which could potentially be enrolled in WRE or sold separately. That area of the farm also has two ponds plus some timber cover, providing excellent recreational opportunities for waterfowl and deer. Or if income is all you're after, subtracting that part of the property makes the balance of the farm about as high-percentage tillable as you'll find. This is a flat-out phenomenal farm and an opportunity that you don't want to miss!
550 +/- acres (492 +/- acres tillable, balance in wetland area and ponds)
492 +/- acres tillable, currently rented on a share-crop basis. Could also be converted to a cash rent for 2019 if desired by the new owner, or farmed by the new owner as the lease is year to year.
Comprised of mostly class II soils, with some class III soils as well. See soil map under Property Documents.
The northeast 80 +/- acres of this property provide multiple opportunities for the new owner. The sellers wish to keep the farm intact and sell all together, but they've been approached by multiple buyers with an interest in purchasing this part of the property only. It lies just south of a huge wetland area and could be converted to a wetland as well, providing even more waterfowl opportunities than already in place via ponds and dry field hunting.
If the northeast 80 +/- acres were approved for enrollment in WRE (Wetland Reserve Easement), the state would pay the owner for the acres enrolled while the new owner retains hunting rights and the ability to sell. Call broker if you'd like additional details on this program.
If that northeast 80 +/- acres were removed from the property, the farm becomes extremely high-percentage tillable with very little 'waste'. If the highest return or income is your goal then see other listing for 470 +/- acres or contact broker for options on how the farm could be split.
The old railroad bed is timber-lined and has thick cover in some areas, providing bedding areas for deer and additional recreational opportunities.
