Here is a great tract for the recreational buyer wanting fishing, hunting and canoeing with a good location to I-35. There are several good building site for a home or get-away cabin. The farm was put in the Conservation Reserve Program in 2009 and 2011 in anticipation of building the ponds and wetlands area. The warm season grasses, wildflowers and forbs are now well established and looking great. Pheasants and deer have been noted this summer as well as turkeys, ducks and geese. There were two 1-3 acre ponds built on the eastern slopes in 2009 and 2010. The large pond/wetlands project was finished in 2012 at a cost of over $180,000 through a cooperative effort of the owner and government agencies. The dam is made to flow over in the event of large rains but filter out sediment so not to get into West Lake which is the water source for the Osceola area. The depth of the wetlands/pond is such to support year round fish populations but has lower depth wetlands areas to the sides and north end for wildlife habitat. The road fences and small trees were recently removed and the land is in the process of being reseeded.
Farm is at the NE corner of Kansas Street and 195th Avenue. Take I-35 exit 34 (Kansas Street) at Lakeside Casino then go west approximately 2.25 miles to the SW corner of the farm.
