First time offering of a rare Fort Bend County 2,425 acre farm that has been in the same family for over 100 years! This property consists of approximately 1,425 acres of income producing farmland, and 1,000 acres of prime pasture and impressive Live Oaks, Elms, and Bald Cypress along the San Bernard River. With 2.5 miles of Turkey Creek, and an 18-acre lake add to the recreational value of the ranch.

There are two rice fields (263 and 285 acres) that are in rotation, along with approximately 820 acres of row crop in rotation.
PASTURE AND HUNTING LAND
Lots of Live and Recreational Water!! There are approximately 1,000 acres of hunting and livestock pasture and woods set between the farmland and the river. 2 miles of San Bernard River border the property to the Northwest, and 2.5 miles of Turkey Creek meander through the Live Oak and Pecan trees along the West side of the property providing great habitat for deer, hogs and other wildlife to hide out. Perhaps the crown jewel of the pasture is the 18-acre lake! This lake is home to lots of fish and offers great duck hunting in the colder months. Its location well off any public road is ideal for tons of ducks and other waterfowl looking for big holes of secluded water. There is a duck hunting blind in place. The woods consist of a Cypress lined San Bernard River and are loaded with 100-200 year old giant Pecan trees, large mature Oaks, and many other species of hardwoods. The 1,000 acre pasture also holds a set of large cattle working pens with a large sorting chute, ground load and double loading chute, barns, shed, water and troughs, electricity, and a 75-acre fenced and cross fenced trap. Water is provided to the pasture by a water well at the pens with troughs. This is a one of a kind rare Fort Bend County family estate!!! One of the largest Farm and Ranch combo properties in the County.
