575 +/- acres, White River Bottom Land, Farmhouse, Barn, Batesville, Arkansas

This is the 575 +/- Acre Stalker Farm on the White River in Batesville, AR. As you leave the Delta following the White River West, the land starts to transition from the Mississippi Delta to the foothills of the Ozarks. The farms along the White River consists of row crop and then transition into rolling hills and pastures! These farms have been in the same families dating back over several generations. We are proud to bring you one of these such farms.

This 575 +/- acre Stalker farm consist of tillable acres located on the south side of Gap Road and beautiful timber ground, which includes Pine Mountain, on the north side of Gap Road. The tillable acres are currently non-irrigated but do not let that scare you. The White River Bottom is known for some of the most fertile soil in the world. The beauty of the Stalker Farm, even though it is currently non-irrigated, it definitely could be easily converted to irrigated. With farms selling in the mid-west from 15,000 – 20,000 per acre, this would be a great opportunity to buy non-irrigated and install irrigation!

The Stalker farm has been in the Stalker family for 75+/- years. The family house and barn are still there. The barn could be restored into many different things from a wedding venue to a gathering place for a family or just simply put back to work as a barn for the farm. The family home will need some work but it is a gorgeous old farm house. This home sits on a hill guarded by giant red oak trees while looking over the families stocked pond.

This farm has 100’s of locations that could be made into beautiful home sites but one of the most interesting spots is on top of Pine Mountain. Pine Mountain rises far above the farm standing guard over the White River Bottoms! During the Civil War, this is exactly what they used it for! Being one of the tallest and one of the first mountains coming up from the Delta, Confederate Soldiers used this mountain to watch for Union Soldiers making their way west into the Ozarks to try and take the town of Batesville. Legends have it that on Pine Mountain there was a huge amount of treasure buried on its summit and even today you can see where many holes were dug where treasure hunters searched for the buried treasures in the late 1800’s. Pine Mountain would be a great place to have a home, getting up every morning watching the sunrise over the White River. Pine Mountain would also be a great place to build cabins to rent out so the whole world could enjoy the beauty of Pine Mountain while looking over the White River Bottoms!

As you see in the photos, there is another piece of history to this land! A master woodcarver and his art!
