245+/- Acres of Row Crop Farm Land, Desha, Arkansas, Independence County


This 245 +/- acre farm is a dryland row crop farm but do not let that fool you. This is some of the RICHEST soil in Arkansas! This farm can grow wheat, corn, soy beans, milo, peanuts or Bermuda grass. There is another crop that can be grown which will make this 245 acre farm the ace in the hole. That crop is cotton. Cotton is making a comeback in Arkansas and especially in Jackson and independence counties. With the new varieties of high producing dry land cotton, this farm is perfect. With a hard pan being at 18 +/- inches, it will allow the cotton tap roots to reach for moisture even in the driest of times.

This 245 acre property holds a special place in our hearts. The 245 acres is part of one of the largest Row crop farms in the Ozarks. These owners tamed these rolling hills, transforming forest hill side and wild creek bottoms into profit bearing crop land that started from Jamestown to Younger Access on the White River. The owners were visionaries and had a vision of farming the White River Bottoms. One of the owners passed away several years ago before the vision was complete leaving the remaining owner to manage over 3700 acres all alone.

The remaining owner contacted us three years ago to help with the possibility of selling part of the farm. We sat down, looked at a plan of what she wanted to sell first and immediately went into listing these properties. We have managed to sell several parts to very deserving people that put the farms to good use.

So this brings us back to the 245 acres this tract of land was one of the late owners favorite so it was one of the last track to be sold. But this farm had laid idle for nearly 10 years growing up in brush and trees.

This is where we came in with our background of successfully developing over 110 properties. It was going to be our pleasure to reclaim this 245 acre farm and restore it back to the vision of an Ozark Mountain Row Crop Farm the late owner had. We will have pictures and videos of what process from start to finish. From the first day we pulled in basically a wilderness to now on the most beautiful wheat crops you have ever seen.

So now we will tell you why you should want to own this 245 acre Row Crop Farm! This 245 acre farm was like it was touched by God’s own hands. Sitting in the shadows of the Boston Mountains to the south and the White River to the north. You would think that you were on a high Rocky Mountain Farm. We have this 245 acre farm planted in wheat right now for the two reasons. First, we started with 20 foot tall trees on some of it, not great drainage and had to brush hog everything. We wanted to make sure that we got a cover crop also we wanted to get the farm back to a revenue generating farm. Wheat is currently over eight dollars per bushel which makes wheat a great choice for a dry land farm.

If you would like to see this farm, please contact us and we will take a look at it! You will not regret it!

Also, if you want to see just how much work goes into calming farmland, check out all of our pictures and videos as the work has been being done but remember it was not work for us it was us carrying on a dream for the late owner.

If you have or know of anyone who has farmland that has gone back to nature and they would be interested in reclaiming it, please let us know. Developing, reclaiming and farm land is one of our strongest attributes as realtors!

Some of the things done on this farm includes mulching, bush hogging, excavator work, new ditch system which also included removing trees, new pipes for drainage and crossings, new driveway put in and graveled, 1 ton of chicken litter to the acre (to reactivate organic matter), 1 ton of lime to the acre (bring the phosphate level to 6.7 so all fertilizers could be used by the plants), 100 pounds of pot ash and Phosphate (help kick start the roots on the wheat crop) and sprayed for weeds! These are the things you will see in the photos and videos.
