Here is an opportunity to own a very nice, affordable tract of land in a good area. It has a total of 157 acres including 16 acres of prime non-flooding bottomland, 81 acres of good quality row crop farmland and the balance is 25 acres of very good pasture with good fences and timber. It has five ponds and there is a beautiful spot on the ridge to build a home on if you were wo inclined. There is a state highway on the west side of the farm and gravel road access from the east through a neighbor. One of the previous owners told me that one of the ponds is deep and full of fish, but I cant affirm that since I havent tried it out. Its located in an area that is known for prime hunting and I think the hunting on this farm would be really great
