Property ID 3093178


This 1,400 acre Kenansville Ranch has been in the same agricultural family for over 40 years. This is a working cattle ranch that is set up right, and priced right at $3,950. per acre. With cow pens located in the middle of the property, lanes run the entire length of the ranch and connect with multiple pastures for a good rotational grazing program. The soils are good and consist of primarily Myakka, Malabar and Riviera soil types. Numerous permitted artesian wells provide irrigation for some pastures and clean fresh water for the cattle.

You will enjoy an exceptional diversity of woods on this property, from an absolutely gorgeous array of oaks, cypress, maples and cabbage palm hammocks to beautiful tall pine woods with palmettos. The woods meander throughout the ranch, giving the property an attractive appearance, as well as excellent cover for the wildlife. Ox Creek flows from west to east the entire length of the ranch. This creek and all other tributaries and ditches drain to the large canal on the east side of the property, which is owned by the ranch and connects to Kenansville Lake. This gives you boat access to Kenansville Lake and thousands of acres of the Upper St Johns River Basin.

This Kenansville Ranch property is currently unencumbered by any conservation easements. BUT, all the attributes of this property certainly make it a good candidate, due to the property adjoining the Upper St. Johns River Basin on the east side and numerous private ranches, in close proximity that are presently under conservation easements. There is an additional 500 acres that can be purchased with is ranch.

Due to the fact the deer population has been hunted by bow only for the past 15 years, you will enjoy excellent deer, turkey and hog hunting.
